Spinach Quiche recipe

For the filling:

  • 150 g baby spinach
  • 100 g broccoli
  • 70 g feta cheese
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 3 eggs
  • 150 ml cream

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

For the crust:

  • 250 g flour
  • 115 g unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp ice cold water

Instructions

In order to make Spinach Quiche first, we prepare its crust. Therefore, cut the butter into small cubes. Then in a bowl, mix the butter with flour and salt by hand using a pastry blender. Just mix them until it looks like coarse crumbs. After that, in a small bowl, beat the egg and ice water together with a fork. Next, pour the egg mixture over the flour mixture and mix them with a silicone spatula. Then press the dough to form a disc, wrap it with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, lightly flour your work surface, and with a rolling pin roll out the chilled dough to fit a 25 cm round tart pan. Drape the dough over the rolling pin and transfer it onto the tart pan. Then shape and press the dough against it and remove any excess dough by running the rolling pin on the top edge of the pan. After that, place the dough in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

Now remove the dough from the freezer, cover it with parchment paper and fill it with pie weights or dried chickpeas. Then blind bake the dough in the preheated oven to 180 ºC for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove the pan from the oven, remove the pie weights and parchment paper and place the dough back in the oven. And bake the dough for 10 minutes more until it is slightly brown. Then set it aside to cool.

Preparing the filling:

To prepare the filling first, chop the onion and broccoli. Then mince the garlic and cut the cherry tomatoes in half.

Now in a large saucepan or skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and onion and fry the onion until it is translucent. Then add the broccoli and minced garlic. After 2 minutes, add the spinach to the mixture and sauté until the spinach is soft. Then remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool. Next, in a bowl beat the eggs with salt and pepper, and then add the cream to the eggs and mix them.

Spinach Quiche assembly:

Break the feta cheese up into small pieces by hand. Next, spread evenly the crumbled feta cheese over the crust. Then add the spinach and broccoli mixture on top of the cheese. After that, gently pour the egg and cream mixture over the rest of the ingredients.

Now it is time to bake the quiche in the preheated oven to 180 ºC for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove the quiche from the oven and arrange the sliced cherry tomatoes on top of the quiche. Then put the quiche back in the oven and bake it for 10 minutes more until it is set and when inserting a knife in it, comes out clean. Let the quiche cool for about 15 minutes and then serve it.


Notes: When preparing the crust for the Spinach Quiche, the butter must be cold. Also, instead of feta cheese, you can use cottage cheese.
