This is an impressive looking quiche that's easy to personalise to your own tastes. You may like to try red peppers instead of the tomato, add a few mushrooms, maybe some asparagus...you get the idea! I served this with a nice salad, a vegetable side dish and a cheese plate for a nice summer meal.
- 1 package frozen shortcrust pastry dough
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cups packed fresh spinach leaves, trimmed and washed thoroughly
- 4 large eggs
- 2⁄3 cup creme fraiche (you can also use heavy cream or milk)
- 1⁄3 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 6 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
- fresh ground black pepper
- Two hours before you want to make the quiche, take the dough out of the freezer to defrost.
- When you're ready to start, lay the dough into either a 10 inch quiche or springform baking pan, making sure you have enough dough to form a crust around the edge.
- The crust should come 1 to 1 1/2 inches up the side of the pan.
- Crumble the feta cheese onto the bottom of the crust.
- Pour the olive oil into a saucepan and, when it is heated, throw in the spinach and cook until wilted.
- Spread the spinach over the feta cheese.
- Beat the eggs, garlic and creme fraiche together.
- Pour over top of the feta cheese and spinach.
- Place cherry tomatoes on top of the quiche.
- Sprinkle chives and ground pepper on top.
- Bake at 350 F or 180 C for 45 minutes.
This was wonderful! I made it crustless, and I used another reviewer's suggestion of thinly sliced Roma tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes. I didn't have any chives, so I used some thinly sliced scallions instead. It cooked in exactly 45 min, and it was perfect! Thanks for a great dinner!
Finally I found the perfect quiche recipe. I made it with 1/2 lowfat milk and 1/2 sour cream like Sunday Cook suggested and will do this in every quiche, every time. This recipe is tasty, creamy, excellent. I used herbed goat cheese and this was a hit!
Excellent, this is my new favorite quiche recipe. I pre-baked the crust in a springform pan for about five minutes after brushing with egg yolk. I also used half milk and half sour cream with good results. I used swiss chard instead of spinach and chedder instead of feta. I also used garlic scapes instead of garlic. They are hard to find but totally worth it. After baking I slid the quiche out of the pan and onto an old wood cutting board and served with a green salad and melon. Absolutely beautiful.
