Yesterday I thawed out a package of frozen, chopped spinach but didn’t have time to make what I wanted to with it. On the carton is says that once thawed, do not re-freeze, so I decided to make a Quiche for the morning. Since it turned out well, I decided to share the recipe with you:
- 10 oz frozen, chopped organic spinach
- 1 frozen pie crust (optional)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 5 organic eggs
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 whole onion, chopped
- 1.5 cups of grated cheese of choice (I used 1 cup Monterey Jack and half a cup of Parmesan)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the olive oil over medium heat and sauté the onion and garlic for 3-5 minutes, until fragrant and translucent. Then add in the spinach and season with some salt and pepper. Cook until heated thoroughly.
Pre-heat the oven to 350 °.
In a bowl, beat the five eggs together and then add in the cheese and mix that in as well. Then combine the spinach mixture with the egg and stir together.
At this point you can either pour the mixture into a frozen pie crust or just pour it directly into a lightly oiled pie pan. Cook for 30-35 minutes and remove when the center of the Quiche seems firm to the touch and the edges slightly begin to brown. Let the Quiche sit for 5-10 minutes before cutting into.
This was super easy to make and it tasted great. Other cheese options are Cheddar, Muenster or Feta.
What is your favorite kind of quiche?
