My mom made fun of me the first time I made this quiche, because it doesn't have any cheese! According to her, the definition of quiche is "cheese pie." I don't know if that's true. But I do know that I don't notice the lack of cheese in this quiche.

I tried this quiche last night. It was very tasty, even without the cheese. The one thing I left out was the onions because my kids don't seem to like their texture. I put in onion powder to have the flavor though. I think that maybe a little more bacon would have been good but really the recipe is so fine as is. I used the recommended pie crust and made it in my food processor. Thanks for sharing.
Very good! I subbed a large clove of minced garlic for the garlic powder and added freshly ground black pepper and a good pinch of kosher salt, but pretty well followed the rest of the recipe. I only had baby-cut carrots on hand, so I just tossed a large handful in the food processor and finely chopped. I was concerned there may be too much dill, but went ahead and used the full amount; it seemed to blend with the flavors fine. Enjoyed your recipe--thanks for sharing it!
I've been looking for a recipe for a spinach quiche without cheese, and this was great! I used a bacon substitute and threw some saute'd mushrooms in there, and it worked very well.
