Spinach Quiche

This is my last post before we go to Europe. That’s when I start posting delicious French cuisine images, if I have time I mean πŸ˜‰ So much to see in Paris! So exciting. I know I won’t be eating any frog legs, I just find it so disturbing. Like I find disturbing to eat rabbit meat…how can you eat something so cute. And I do find frogs very cute!

Last night Rob came home from a week long trip from Orlando and I wanted to make something special. I decided to make a vegetable (spinach) pie.

finalFor the crust you need:

1 cup of flour

100 g (0,4 cup) potato flakes

1 tsp baking powder

0,5 tsp salt

125 g butter

150 g frozen spinach (frozen because itΒ΄s easier to crush it)

For the filling

1 onion

2 cloves garlic

200 g broccoli florets

200 g Feta

2 eggs

200 ml 10 % cream

1 tablespoon flour

1 tsp salt

Toppings

10 little tomatoes

150 g cheese, I used marble

1. Mix all the dry stuff together for the crust, add room temperature butter and the crushed spinach. I found it easier to crush it when it was frozen. Mix very good.

edit-1Put the dough onto a round baking pan (26 – 28 cm pan), also the edges.

edit-22.Cut onion into cubes, fry with garlic till it’s golden brown.

3. Boil broccoli in a salt water for 3 minutes. Then add on top of the dough.

4. Cut feta into cubes and add on top of the broccoli.

5. Cut the tomatoes into half and add it to the pie

6. Mix the eggs with cream and flour, add salt and pour inside the crust “bowl”Β  I used 3 eggs because they were small eggs πŸ™‚

edit-37. Grade cheese and add on top of the filling.

8. Bake 400 F for 35 minutesedit-4It was the most amazing quiche that I have ever done. The crust tasted so awesome!Β  It took about an hour to make it but was so worth it!!!

I will make it again for sure.

      • I have been a bit lazy cooking these last weeks but I will prepare the borsch soon. And I also have spinach in the freezer. I was considering preparing some kind of “burgers” with quinoa, spinach and parmesan. Or maybe mix spinach with white beans or lentils? Still contemplating πŸ˜‰

        In Finland there are spinach pancakes.

      • It’s ok being lazy πŸ˜‰ I always get lazy mid September, when it gets cold, so it’s coming πŸ™‚

        How do you freeze spinach? Just wash/dry and put it into the freezer? I tried that with kale few days ago and with avocado, I had no idea that you could freeze an avocado πŸ™‚

        Spinach, lentils or white beans sounds interesting, I took lentils out last night as well, not sure what I’m gonna make yet…but your idea sounds so good πŸ™‚

        Rob makes the best carrot/ginger soup, I’m in the mood for that. I can’t wait for it to be ready πŸ™‚ I’ll blog about it one day πŸ™‚

        Let me know how your borsch turned out!!!

      • Actually I bought some organic frozen spinach but I am sure you can just freeze dried (whole or cut) leaves. I freeze many things but haven’t tried avocado yet πŸ˜‰ !

        I wish I had borsch to eat now, that it appeared miraculously from somewhere without any effort from my side!
