Savory Spinach & Broccoli Quiche

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by MissFortune5

I make this recipe all the time for brunch. My family absolutely loves it! It's savory and simple to make. Notes: I like to use the Cabot brand extra sharp cheddar. Cabot Cheddar can be purchased at the specialty cheese section in most grocery stores. You can also buy it at Whole Foods & Trader Joes.

Today I woke up to a rainy morning and I was putting my egg recipes in order when I suddenly began to crave quiche. I had some fresh baby spinach (a little over half a 12 oz bag I steamed and squeezed dry, chopped) and broccoli so this recipe fit the bill perfectly. I only had 4 eggs so I added about 3/4 Cup silken Tofu to the eggs mid way thru the mixing to ensure I got enough air in the eggs first. I'm thinking that it will come out nice and add some extra protein to the quiche as well! I also didn't have Monterey Jack so I used shredded Mozzarella.
The Verdict: Fluffy and perfectly tasty quiche that satisfied my craving. Also super stoked it turned out nicely because this was my first attempt at quiche.
