Spinach Quiche Recipe (Quiche Florentine)

spinach quiche

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.

Quiche recipes are so easy to make for lunch, brunch or dinner. They are perfect for a brunch or breakfast buffet. Add a salad and it’s the perfect light lunch or dinner.

The spinach and eggs in this recipe are both very healthy for us.

  • 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.

    • Hi Beth
      It calls for 4 eggs and 1 1/2 cups of cream so I think if you use a fairly roomy pie plate you will be fine. If you are using the small crusts that you buy in foil plates, you may want to buy the deep dish. I hope that helps.
