Spinach Quiche



Spinach Quiche

A simple French classic, this easy recipe is deceptively simple and is perfect for any time of day! Enjoy drizzled with hollandaise or béarnaise sauce.


  • Crust
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 cup Nutiva Organic Shortening (softened)
  • 1/4 cup Milk (can be substituted with cold water)
  • Filling
  • 4 Eggs (beaten)
  • 1 1/2 cups Milk (can be substituted with cream, half & half, rice milk, or almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup Onion (caramelized)
  • 1 1/2 cups Baby Spinach (fresh)
  • 1 cup Swiss Cheese (shredded; can be substituted with cheese of your choice)
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt
  • 1 pinch Ground Black Pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Starting with the crust, sift flour & salt together and mix well.
  3. Beat in butter until mixture is crumbed. Add in milk or water until dough is smooth.
  4. Roll dough into a ball, then inside a greased 9" pie tin, press outward and up to the edges, then flute the edges with your fingertips or a fork.
  5. Sprinkle filler ingredients (caramelized onions, raw spinach, and cheese) into the crust.
  6. Whisk together eggs and milk in a medium mixing bowl, then stir in salt & pepper. Pour egg mixture over filler ingredients, mixing if you prefer, but making sure that the fillers are covered completely by the egg mixture.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes on oven's center rack, or until center is no longer jiggly. Note that the center may rise into a pillow while baking, but this is fine - it will settle once it is taken out of the oven and allowed to cool.
