Spinach, Asparagus & Feta Quiche

Spinach, Asparagus and Feta Quiche

These days, when I want something to eat {and I can’t get it delivered} I immediately grab my keys & head for the grocery store to make it myself. I am embracing the cravings, especially when they are of the healthy variety! The other day I had some quiche at my mother-in-law’s house and it was out of this world. I wasn’t surprised when yesterday the sudden urge for more quiche came over me. I looked up some quiche recipes online, found a good one & went to work.

Spinach and Asparagus

Let’s cross our fingers that all my cravings going forward include spinach & asparagus, ok? Highly unlikely, but when it does happen – I just got to go with it! For this recipe I was really excited to combine one of my favorite cheeses – Feta! – with some yummy greens and a flakey crust. Yum!Feta, Spinach, Asparagus Quiche

How To:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees*  Line a pie plate with dough – I used Trader Joe’s Pie Crusts.
  2.  In a large skillet, heat 1/2 tsp. olive oil over medium heat. Add 10 asparagus spears – ends removed and cut into small pieces , and 1 bag of baby spinach (or 4 cups, same thing!). Cook until asparagus spears are slightly tender and spinach is wilted. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the spinach after it’s cooked – you can do this by draining in a colander.
  3. In another large bowl, whisk together 5 large eggs and 1 cup skim milk. Stir in 1 cup feta and 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Place asparagus pieces and spinach on the bottom of the crust. Pour the egg & cheese mixture over the vegetables and into the crust.
  5. Bake the quiche for 45 minutes or until quiche slightly golden brown. Let  stand for 15 minutes before serving.

Vegetable Quiche

Seriously, this turned out to be such an amazingly tasty meal – and Charles loved it too! The feta gives the quiche such a great kick, and the asparagus & spinach combination is always a good one. One side of the crust got a little burned {our oven is old as the hills} but it was just a little bit on one side so it wasn’t a meal breaker.

This quiche definitely hit the spot & I will definitely be recreating this again soon. Now I am just wondering what other vegetable combinations I could play around with…so many amazing veggies to choose from!

    I love quiche and egg dishes in general for a quick weeknight meal. I also love that you can pretty much add whatever veggies you have on hand. Asparagus is one of my favorites!!

    I think this is a great idea but was wondering what size of pie curst you used? I tried it with a 9” crust and had left over egg.

      Tarrah, I believe I used a 9″ crust pan – I used a pre made crust from Pillsbury too.
      Let me know if you have any other questions!
