How to make spinach quiche recipe

Quiche is usually made with basic crust, with different egg and cheese fillings. To make it easier and more healthy for you (and for us!), I’ve grated a sweet potato (without skin) and pressed it to the bottom of the pan. Then bake your sweet potato crust, just to make it more firm and crunchy, not too soggy, when you have it with your filling.

I have 2 small servings – 2 mini quiche, so I used only one small potato and only 3 eggs for the filling. Keep in mind that your filling will rise a little bit, so you don’t need to fill your pan till the top.

Meanwhile prepare your filling. Beat eggs, add milk and spices. I really love to add cayenne and basil to my morning egg dishes! Of course pepper, but no salt, because later we will add feta cheese, which is quite salty already.

Heat a pan with some olive oil. Add chopped spinach and toss few minutes until it shrinks. Then add few cloves of garlic and cook one minute more until aromatic.

So your filling is almost done!

Remove your sweet potato crust from the oven, but don’t turn it off. Distribute spinach to the quiche, fill with egg mixture and add crumble feta on top. Bake for about half an hour or more if you have bigger dish. Moreover, you can check if it is ready with a knife inserted – it should come out clean.

Quiche ingredients

Moreover, you can add cherry tomatoes, olives and bell pepper to the quiche. You can substitute feta to Parmesan, Mozzarella, Brie or other cheese that you prefer. I love feta cheese so much that I add it to almost every dish, haha!

Quiche Lorraine

Quiche is a savory tart that is a part of French cuisine, named after Lorraine region in France. It usually have pastry crust, but sweet potato is a great gluten-free option! The main ingredients for the filling are eggs and milk, usually with cheese (quiche au fromage). I’ve made this vegetarian quiche with spinach, but it may also have seafood or bacon.

Serving spinach quiche

I prefer serving quiche hot. You can leave in in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheat in the oven for about 15 minutes.

This quiche can be served for your family Easter brunch or breakfast. But it is also great party food, served cold. This easy quiche recipe makes 2 mini baking dishes (5,7 inch / 14,5 cm in diameter). However, you can double the ingredients to bake this quiche in a bigger tart pan.

Hope you will enjoy this quiche florentine or spinach quiche!
