Best Spinach Quiche

    50 min

    This spinach quiche is ready in a blink of an eye! Use a good quality shortcrust pastry for best results. This quiche is rather light, as it doesn't use double cream or cheese as many quiche recipes do.

    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
