Fluffy Spinach, Onion and Roasted Red Pepper Quiche With Gruyere

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Wish I Could Cook

In my quest to find out what makes a quiche fluffy, I've cobbled together this recipe. And it makes a great tasting quiche with a beautiful presentation. The key (surprisingly) is not to overbeat the eggs, not to use too hot of an oven, and don't overdue the liquids.

I love quiche and this one was to die for. Loved the combo of flavors with the cheesy custard like filling! Funny thing is I don't like Gruyere cheese by itself, but melted it is amazing! I didn't use as much spinach as was called for as DH doesn't care for its cooked texture. It was perfect for our tastes. Made for Veg'n Swap tag.
