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.
