"Spinach quiche baked in puff pastry. This is my own creation and is devoured every time it's served up. I hope you enjoy it, it's a little different but very tasty."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a quiche dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Line the quiche dish with puff pastry, press the pastry firmly in place and trim away any excess pastry. Blind bake for 10 minutes.
  3. In a large skillet place spinach and 4 tablespoons water. Heat the mixture over medium and cover the skillet. Cook until the spinach is done, approximately 2 minutes then drain well. Add nutmeg to the spinach and puree the mixture.
  4. In a large skillet, saute the onion with butter or margarine to taste. Saute until the onions are soft and transparent.
  5. In a medium-size mixing bowl, beat eggs. Stir in the cottage cheese, spinach, and 1/2 cup of cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange onions along the bottom of the pastry-lined quiche dish. Arrange the tomatoes over the onions. Pour the egg-mixture over the onions and tomatoes, and top entire concoction with the remaining cheese.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the quiche has set in the middle. Serve hot or cold, your choice!

This is a fabulous recipe!!!! I made it using filo pastry instead of puff pastry. I sprayed a 10" quiche dish with olive oil then lined it with 3-4 sheets of filo. I sprayed on more olive oil...

We didn't like this one so much way too many onions. Although i like the flaky crust and i will use that again with my quiche recipes.

Very tasty. I used a package of frozen chopped spinach, three eggs and 3/4 cup cottage cheese. Used only 1 sheet puff pastry and made a 9" pie. Never thought of using puff pastry for a crust. ...

Excellent recipe! I've made this a few times now! Though the first time, I didn't blind bake the crust properly...not knowing exactly what that meant! But now I know to add dried beans to keep t...

Tried using phyllo dough- the crust came out soggy. Definitely use a pie crust and mix sauteed onions in with egg mix (after they've cooled)

I made this for a party and everyone raved over it. Especially my sister-in-law who is a vegetarian and has a hard time finding quality recipes without meat.
