Veggie Quiche

12 Apr

Veggie Quiche (makes two quiches; adapted from “Transformed Spinach Mushroom Quiche” at allrecipes.com)

  • 8 eggs
  • 1 1/2 c. milk (or 1/2 c. heavy cream and 1 c. milk)
  • 2 Tbs. fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 c. fresh greens (e.g. chard, spinach), chopped
  • 4 oz. fresh mushroom, sliced
  • 1/4 c. onion, minced
  • 2 Tbs. sun-dried tomatoes, minced
  • 1 oz. feta cheese, small crumbles
  • 2/3 c. shredded cheese

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Farenheit. Precook two pie crusts (see recipe for almond flour pie crust). In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, parsley, garlic, salt, nutmeg, and pepper. In a separate bowl, toss together the greens, mushroom, onion, tomatoes, and feta. Spread half of the veggie mix over each pie crust. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese on top of each veggie mix. Gently pour half of the egg mix on top of each layer of cheese. Bake at 400 degrees Farenheit for ~45 min. or at 415 degrees F for ~30 min. Let sit 10 min.

Saute the onion for ~5 min. in olive oil and lard over medium-low heat. Add mushrooms, garlic, and 1 to 2 Tbs. butter and saute until mushrooms are soft. Remove from heat and set aside. Brown the ground meat in the same pan. In a bowl, combine water and sauce mix as per the directions. Add to the browned meat. Add beef base, tomato paste, garlic powder, salt, and mushroom/onion mix. Let simmer. When thick and ~5 min. before serving, add greens and sour cream and turn heat to low.
