Spinach Quiche Recipe
Spinach quiche, or quiche Florentine, is a wonderful vegetarian quiche recipe.
The spinach, cream, cheese and onion combination is wonderful and may actually get a non-spinach eater to the table.
9" partially baked pie shell
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons green onions, finely chopped
2 packages frozen spinach, cooked, drained and chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/4 cup heavy cream
4 eggs, lightly beaten<br>
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Melt the butter in a saucepan and sauté onions until tender.
In bowl combine spinach, onions, salt, pepper, nutmeg and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Beat cream and eggs together and combine with the spinach mixture. Pour into the pie shell, and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.
Try brushing Dijon mustard (or a mustard of your own preference) on the bottom of the pie shell before putting the filling in. It adds extra flavor.
Makes one quiche, 6 servings.
