A quiche on a plate
Veggie Quiche
Serves: 7

  • 1 pkg frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp water
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 8 inch glass pie dish.
  2. Line the dish with puff pastry, press the pastry firmly in place and trim away any excess pastry. Bake 10 minutes.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet saute spinach and 4 tablespoons water approximately 2 minutes. Heat the mixture over medium and cover the skillet. Add nutmeg to the spinach and stir.
  4. In a large skillet, saute the onion with butter. Saute until the onions are soft and transparent, about 10 mins.
  5. In a medium-size mixing bowl, beat eggs. Stir in the cottage cheese, spinach, and ½ cup of cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Spread onions evenly along the bottom of the pastry-lined dish. Arrange the tomatoes over the onions. Pour the egg-mixture over the onions and tomatoes, and top with remaining cheese.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the quiche has set in the middle.
