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.
Spinach Quiche Florentine
- 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
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.
