Transformed Spinach Mushroom Quiche Recipe
Spinach, mushrooms, feta, and Swiss cheeses fill this moist veggie quiche with flavor. Add sausage if you like. The recipe is easily doubled.
Delicious recipe I bought a bag of 10 frozen spinach. I defrosted 5 oz. of the spinach and then added in the mushrooms, onion and garlic and cooked the ingredients in butter over medium heat for 10 minutes before pouring into the pie crust.I made the pie crust for a 10 inch pie plate and it turned out delicious:)
I will make it again.
I used s[inach and asparagus and it was wonderful. Will make more shortly when we have company.
I love this recipe so much! I also cook the veggies before and mix with the feta. I double the egg mixture and then divide the mixture bc it is a LOT for one 9 in. pan. It always is a hit with my family.
Successful recipe! I made a few revisions. Reduced butter to 2 Tbps & based on other reviewers' comments, I reduced the eggs to 3, cheese to 4 oz, mushrooms to 6 oz, spinach to 4 oz. I also used 1/2 c heavy cream + 1/4 c almond milk in place of the regular milk. To prevent soggy crust, I prebaked my 9 inch crust and sauteed the mushrooms and spinach till most of the moisture was gone, then added the seasonings to the veggies. When assembling the pie, I sprinkled 2/3 of the cheese in the bottom of the prebaked crust as a moisture barrier. Veggies, then custard mixture, and pushed the veggies down into the custard. Baked 40 min at 375, then added remaining cheese to top & covered the exposed pie crust with foil to prevent burning. Baked another 10 min. DH tasted and proclaimed "Now THAT's a quiche!" but said it was a tad too salty. Next time I'll add the cheese moisture barrier during the last 5 minutes of prebaking the crust and cover the crust with foil when assembling the pie + reduce the salt.
My husband and I truly, enjoyed this recipe! I made my own pie crust ( which I have been previously, used for for fruit pies with excellent results )! I did only, partially, pre- bake the crust prior to including, remaining ingredients according, to recipe! This enabled the crust not to be over-baked during, baking of remaining ingredients ! Found using fresh uncooked spinach and mushrooms made a Significant delightful fresh tasty meal without over cooking vegetables . I certainly, recommend anyone with a interest in cooking , try this recipe they won’t be disappointed ! I have made other similar vegetable Quiches However , this recipe was more creative and enjoyable
I like this recipe but I really think the spinach, mushrooms and onions need to be sautéed first. Otherwise they don't fit into the pie shell. Also, I am not a huge fan of raw onions.
