Ingredients: Spinach and Mushroom Quiche

  • 1 pie crust (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk or half-and-half
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for sautéing

Instructions: For spinach and Mushroom Quiche

  1. Prepare the Pie Crust: If you’re using a store-bought crust, follow the package instructions for pre-baking. If you prefer homemade, roll out the crust and press it into a pie dish, then pre-bake until lightly golden.


  1. Sauté Vegetables: In a pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sauté onions until translucent, then add garlic, mushrooms, and spinach. Cook until the vegetables are tender and any excess moisture from the mushrooms and spinach has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Layer the Pie: Spread the sautéed vegetable mixture evenly over the pre-baked crust. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top.
  3. Prepare the Egg Mixture: In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk (or half-and-half). Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cheese in the pie crust.
  4. Bake: Place the quiche in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the center is set and the top is golden brown.
  5. Cool and Serve: Allow the quiche to cool for a few minutes before slicing. Serve warm, and enjoy the delightful combination of flavors and textures in each bite.
