This Spinach Quiche is easy to make and full of delicious flavor! You’ll love the combination of spinach, sweet onion, mushrooms, and cheddar and feta cheeses.
A good quiche can be served up for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. It’s a complete meal with plenty of protein and veggies. In this recipe we’ve skipped the pie crust to keep things not only easy, but also a bit healthier. Start by sauteeing some onions and mushrooms in a skillet until softened, then add in garlic. You want to give these a pre-cook before adding into the quiche because they will still be a bit raw if put directly into the quiche itself without pre-cooking. Add in your spinach and cheeses (we recommend cheddar and feta) and spoon this into a pie plate. Top with some eggs whisked together with milk and seasoning and then pop it in the oven. It’s easy to make and totally delicious!
Should I use a deep dish pie plate or a shallow pie plate?
This recipe is designed for a standard deep dish pie plate that has a depth of 2 to 2.5 inches. There are generally two different pie plates that are sold in stores. One is a standard deep dish, and another is a more shallow dish (1 to 1 1/4 inch deep) that works best for pies that are better with less filling (like a decadent chocolate pie). With a quiche, you want to make sure you have a good thick layer of filling so a standard deep dish pie plate will work better. If you are using a crust, it’ll also produce a better filling to crust ratio.
Can I add a crust to this quiche recipe?
Yes! You can easily add a crust to this recipe. Use a frozen, or pre-made pie crust, or make your own. Need a recipe for pie crust? Try this one. Instead of spooning the pie filling into an empty pie plate, you’ll spoon it directly into the crust. No par baking required.
Can I use fresh spinach instead of frozen and thawed?
Yes you can! For a detailed explanation, please read this article on substituting fresh spinach for frozen. You’ll need to remove stems, cook it in a skillet over medium high heat for a few minutes, and then (just like frozen) remove as much liquid as possible from it.
