Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 very small onion (or half medium) chopped small
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 cup frozen spinach (the loose kind, not the block)
  • 1 green onion, chopped small (cut into thin circles)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¾ cup crumbled feta
  • 1 frozen pie crust (I like Wholly Wholesome)
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Heat a large pan over medium heat. When it's warmed up, add oil and onion. Cooking, stirring occasionally until onions are translucent, about 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and stir, cooking until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add spinach, green onion, parsley, salt, and pepper. Cook until spinach is de-frosted, about 4-5 minutes. Set aside to cool. Note: Be sure to let this cool because it can start cooking the eggs if you add them too soon to the next step.
  3. In a large bowl, combine eggs and milk and whisk until evenly combined.
  4. Stir in cooled vegetable mixture. Stir in feta cheese.
  5. Pour egg mixture into the frozen pie crust and bake for 45-55 minutes, until the center is set.
Notes
Cooking tip: when you check the quiche to see if it's done, if the center is still sunken, you probably need to cook it longer. I wait until the top is nice and rounded up. I also sometimes insert a toothpick in the center to see if the center is runny or solid.
