Spinach and blue cheese quiche

    1 hour 30 min

    I wanted to make a quiche back in 2003, but got tired of the usual ingredients and decided to concoct my own vegetarian creation with spinach, blue cheese and garlic. I hope it will be a good recipe for any vegetarians using this site. Enjoy!

    Serves: 4 

    • 150g self-raising flour
    • 100g margarine (I find Flora works best or you can use block margarine)
    • a little water to bind the pastry
    • 100g mature cheddar
    • 50g blue cheese (Danish Blue is best)
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 bag of fresh spinach leaves
    • 2 big cloves of garlic

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr30min 

    1. Combine the flour and margarine and rub in to form crumbs.
    2. Add a little cold water to bind the flour and margarine together, but not too much. About five to six teaspoons. You don't want the pastry too sticky!
    3. Roll the pastry out and press it into a greased pyrex dish, approximately 4 inches deep by 9 inches wide.
    4. Heat the oven to Gas mark 5 / 190 C / 375F and bake the pastry blind for about 10 minutes.
    5. Wash the spinach and drain. Set to one side.
    6. Grate the cheddar and crumble the blue cheese into it.
    7. Crush two cloves of garlic and keep to one side.
    8. Beat the eggs and add the cheese, garic and spinach to it.
    9. Pour the mixture over the prepared pastry base and allow to cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour until the top is set.

    Used different ingredients. Throw in some sun-dried tomato for a really nice sweet tone in there as well.  -  11 Sep 2009


    Altered ingredient amounts. Also 1 clove of garlic and only half an hour in the oven works better for me. If I'd left it 45 mins I think it would have come out charred.  -  24 Nov 2009


    I used this recipe as a basis upon which I made the tweaks I posted. Turned out very nicely like that. Haven't tried completely to recipe, however.  -  24 Nov 2009
