  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the onion until tender. Mix in the garlic, spinach, and carrots, and cook until the spinach liquid has evaporated. Remove skillet from heat, and mix in cheese and eggs. Season with red pepper, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Pour 1/2 the mixture into each pie shell.

  • Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a quiche comes out clean.

I think this recipe needed some cream or milk to give it a more fluffy texture. It didn't fill my 2 pie crusts and they looked so sad. However the taste was good maybe a bit too much nutmeg. I also added diced red peppers and split the cheese - 1 cup sharp cheddar and 1 cup muenster. I also used fresh spinach and just added a teeny bit of water to the pan for a few minutes so it could wilt. Read More

This was a great change from the normal. It looked beautiful. Next time I will add more carrots and fewer onions. Other than that it was great. Read More

This was excellent! Even my 4 year old loves it. I made it for the first time tonight. I did only make 1 pie. Instead of only using 3 eggs I threw in 4. I also added some extra spinach. I used a combination of montery jack and pepper jack cheeses to give it a little more kick and I also put some thinly sliced tomato on top to make it look pretty tasted good too!! I will definitely be making this again!! Read More

My first quiche and what a keeper this is. I used the food processor to mince the onions finely. I substituted fresh organic red chard shredded by food processor very finely for the spinach (one whole bunch) and fried it with the onions and garlic. Didn't use any carrot. Used half cheddar and half organic emmenthal cheese. YUM!!! I was truly impressed by this recipe. The quiche turned out with a good consistency not runny at all after 28 minutes in a convection oven. We couldn't stop eating it so between two thin adults we finished one pie. I couldn't really taste the red chard. Unfortunately not a hit with my two children under 4 even though I left out all pepper. Thank you for the relatively easy and delicious recipe. Read More

Great quiche! I made the mistake of using deep dish pie plates and I didn't have enough for 2 quiches. I put tomatoes on top and it really added great flavor. I will add this to the rotation! Read More

Good flavor and texture (not runny at all). My 3 year old NEVER eats spinach and ate his entire serving. I would like it with a little more egg but I will definitely make it again. Read More

Absolutely delicious and easy to make! I fried the onion together with the garlic and used a mini food processor to chop up the carrots (instead of shredding them). Read More
