This lighter spinach quiche doesn't taste 'light' in the slightest! VEry delicious and couldn't be easier. I might try adding chopped ham sometime to make it a heartier quiche, which would still make it healthier and lower in fat than most. Recommended!-21 Jul 2011

I made my own pastry and used fresh spinach as I didn't have frozen, I also used reduced fat creme fraiche Might try adding a bit of cheese next time. Delicious and filling thanks for the recipe!-13 Jun 2015

I've cooked this quite a few times ,couldn't be easier and makes a quiche that would serve six easily .I've added bacon and 100gms of cheddar on occasion but the original recipe is delicious .-19 Dec 2013


A quiche is a tart made with pie crust and a creamy, savory custard filling. The simplest version calls for eggs, heavy cream, whole milk, salt, and pepper, but quiche often stars cheese (we're fans of cooking with sharp Swiss and cheddar cheese), meat, and all kinds of vegetables. If you're looking for a recipe that is delicious for brunch or dinner, look no further than these quiche recipes.

Bacon is a classic ingredient in quiche, for obvious reasons. Our Bacon and Spinach Quiche is filling, rich, and just the thing that you'll want to eat for an extra-special breakfast. Another delicious option is our Bacon and Scallion Quiche, which gets its flavor and stunning appearance from the two main ingredients&mdashno guest will pass this recipe up.

Another classic combination that works so well in a quiche is spinach and cheese. Our Spinach-and-Cheddar Slab Quiche switches things up because it's made with store-bought all-butter puff pastry rather than the usual pâte brisée. For the filling, the two star ingredients are layered on the bottom of the tart, then topped with the egg and cream custard.

Of course, we have several other vegetarian quiche recipes to serve. Our Potato-Crusted Herb Quiche is extra special. Instead of the usual pastry crust, there's a surprising (but equally delicious) base: thinly sliced potatoes! They're tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper, arranged in a pie dish, and baked before being topped with the egg mixture. We're sure that you'll also devour our colorful Rainbow-Chard Quiche and Cherry Tomatoes and Pecorino Quiche, too.

Your family and friends will love to feast on these quiche recipes, whether at the breakfast table, over brunch, or for a light but satisfying dinner.


What is Quiche?

Quiche is a savory egg custard baked in a flaky pie crust shell. Though you can certainly make a crustless quiche, too! The base of quiche filling are milk, cream, and eggs. The add-ins vary and can include meats, seafood, cheese, spices, and vegetables. One of the more popular quiche recipes is Quiche Lorraine, which combines bacon and cheese. Today I’m showing you how to make the perfect quiche with any add-ins you choose!


TIP#1: Upgrade from a tart pan to a deep dish quiche pan. Make sure it’s a removable bottom pan.

TIP#2: If you don’t have a tart pan or a food processor buy a ready-made deep dish pie crust, this will work too. Crimp the edges decoratively to look “homemade”.

TIP#3: Don’t Blind Bake. Roll the dough out right away and fit into the bottom of the pan, letting the sides flop over. Fit the bottom and sides, and then using back of palm fit into corners. Cut the excess off the top so that dough is flush.

TIP#4: Place pan in the freezer for at least 20 mins, longer is fine too. The dough should not bend to the touch.


This is just a quick visual guide, the full ingredients and instructions are in the recipe card below.

    Make thepastry – sift the flour into a large bowl, add the butter, mix that in using two knives. Then using your fingertips rub the butter into the flour until you a crumb-like texture. Stir in the thyme leaves. Whisk the eggs with the chilled water then add a tablespoon at a time to the flour mixture. Sir with a knife then finally using your hands bring the pastry together into a ball shape. Wrap it in cling film then pop it in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes. Then blind bake the pastry.

Ingredients for a Vegan Spinach Quiche

As with some substitutes and replacements in recipes, it can feel more complicated than the original recipe. For this eggless quiche, tofu is swapped for eggs and whipped to creamy status in the blender.

Here are the major ingredients you will need:

  • Almond flour
  • Oat flour
  • Olive oil
  • Organic cane sugar
  • Firm tofu
  • Unsweetened almond milk
  • Onion
  • Minced garlic
  • Nutritional yeast, ground mustard, ground turmeric, cayenne pepper
  • Fresh spinach


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, plus more for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 3 ounces crumbled feta cheese (3/4 cup)

Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in spinach remove from heat.

Meanwhile, whisk milk, eggs, dill, lemon zest, salt and pepper together in a medium bowl.

Ingredients

refrigerated or frozen pie dough, thawed if frozen (or use homemade)

whole milk, half-and-half, or heavy cream

Freshly ground black pepper

grated smoked Gouda cheese, divided

frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and patted very dry, or 2 cups fresh baby spinach

Instructions

Roll the dough to fit slightly larger than a 9-inch standard (not deep dish) pie plate. Press into the plate and fold the overhang underneath. Crimp as desired. Freeze for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, arrange a rack in the lower third of the oven and heat to 350°F.

Line the crust with parchment paper and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake in the lower third of the oven for 20 minutes. Remove the weights and parchment. Bake again until just starting to brown, 10 to 15 minutes more. Set aside to cool slightly.

Whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and several grinds pepper together in a medium bowl until frothy and combined set aside.

Sprinkle half the cheese over the pie crust. Top with the spinach, then sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Pour the egg mixture into the crust.

Bake until the edges are set but the center still jiggles just a little, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool for at least 20 minutes. Serve warm, at room temperature, or cold.

Recipe Notes

Dairy choice: Whole milk will give you the lightest quiche, heavy cream will give you the richest quiche, and half-and-half will land you somewhere in the middle.

Make ahead: The crust can be blind baked and cooled up to 2 days in advance store tightly wrapped at room temperature. The quiche can be baked, cooled, and refrigerated up to 3 days in advance. Let come to room temperature or reheat in a 300°F oven before serving.

Storage: Leftover baked and cooled quiche can be stored wrapped in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat in a 300°F oven until just warm to the touch.

  • 3 Ounces prosciutto
  • 4 pasture-raised eggs
  • 1 pie crust
  • 4 Ounces arugula
  • 1 lemon
  • 5 Ounces baby spinach
  • 1/2 Pound sugar snap peas
  • 0.7 Ounce Grana Padano cheese
  • 1/4 Cup sliced roasted almonds
  • 1 Cup biscuit mix
  • 4 Tablespoons creme fraiche
  • 1/2 Cup part-skim Ricotta cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons fig spread
  • 2 Tablespoons fromage blanc
  • 4 Ounces Fontina cheese

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Pull off and discard the tough string that runs the length of each snap pea pod cut the peas into 1/2-inch pieces. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Grate the fontina on the large side of a box grater. Grate the Grana Padano on the small side of a box grater. Remove the plastic lining between the slices of prosciutto. Place the ricotta in a bowl drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the snap pea pieces season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the spinach season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until wilted. Turn off the heat.

In a large bowl, combine the eggs and fromage blanc season with salt and pepper. Whisk until smooth. Add the cooked vegetables and grated fontina stir to combine. Place the pie crust on a sheet pan, leaving it in its tin. Carefully pour the filling into the pie crust. Bake 24 to 26 minutes, or until the filling is set and cooked through. Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, lightly oil a sheet pan. In a medium bowl, combine the biscuit mix, crème fraîche, and 1/4 cup of water season with salt and pepper. Gently stir until just combined (be careful not to overmix). Scoop the biscuit dough into 4 equal-sized dollops place on the oiled sheet pan. Bake 16 to 18 minutes, or until the biscuits are set and cooked through. Remove from the oven. When cool enough to handle, halve crosswise.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the juice of all 4 lemon wedges and a drizzle of olive oil season with salt and pepper. Just before serving, add the arugula, almonds, and grated Grana Padano. Toss to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Evenly divide the fig jam, seasoned ricotta, and prosciutto between the halved biscuits. Serve the baked quiche with the prosciutto-fig biscuits and arugula salad.
