Easy Peasy Spinach Tomato Quiche

We love this quick and easy Spinach Tomato Quiche Recipe.

It features a crazy fast from-scratch quiche crust (aka savory pie crust) and a medley of fresh, delicious vegetables. Of course I added a little cheese for good measure too! So yummy and fabulously vegetarian too. Easy Peasy Spinach Tomato Quiche

For years I’ve jumped at the chance to gobble down a slice of veggie quiche any time someone was generous enough to bring one to a gathering.  How could you go wrong with cheese, veggies, and eggs in a neat little pie slice of a package?

Well… actually, you can! A single serving of a store bought quiche can pack over 800mg of sodium and an average of 500 calories. For this reason, I would longingly gaze at the neat little frozen quiche at the grocery store but could never bring myself to buy one. Not so much for the calories alone, but all that salt! eep! Plus they never had nearly enough spinach in them and always left me wanting more.

My solution? End the separation anxiety! 

I finally took matters into my own hands and made my own fluffy quiche. Extra veggies, yummy feta and only a pinch of salt? Yes please!

The recipe for the filling has been adapted from this Food.com recipe and the crust came from here.

Easy Peasy Spinach Tomato Quiche 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups packed fresh spinach leaves, trimmed and washed thoroughly
  • (I used nearly an entire package of baby spinach for mine)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream (or milk, half and half, or So Delicious coconut milk creamer)
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1-2 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • fresh ground black pepper

uber easy crust RECIPE:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (any variety)
  • 1/4 cup ice cold water

instructions

First, mix the flour and salt with fork.  In a separate bowl, beat the oil and water with a whisk or fork to thicken.  Pour into flour and mix with fork.  Press dough into a 9″ (10″ could work too!) pie dish to make the crust.  Make sure you thin out the dough so you end up with a crispy, flaky crust instead of a thick doughy one!.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and start quiche filling. 

Crumble the feta cheese onto the bottom of the crust. Next, pour the olive oil into a saucepan and, when it is heated, toss in the spinach and cook until wilted. (Fight urge to hum Pop-eye theme song) Once wilted, spread the spinach over the cheese.  Beat the eggs and garlic with your dairy choice (milk, 1/2&1/2, heavy cream) together.  Pour over top of the feta cheese and spinach. Toss in tomatoes or artfully arrange slices on top of the quiche – you’re call!  Sprinkle freshly ground pepper on top.
 
Fill crust with quiche mixture and bake at 350F for approx 35-45 minutes.
 
Recipe yields 5 servings at approx 330 calories each.

    Just made this quiche and cannot wait to try it when it comes out of the oven. Added a smidge of dried mixed herbs and a bit of sharp white cheddar but otherwise followed the recipe. Smells delicious.

    Could you put sun dried tomatoes in this quiche?

    • Go for it! Maybe add less salt since sun tried tomatoes are so salty? I’d vote to add them to half the quiche and see which half ou like best! 🙂
