Spring Greens Quiche Pinterest | Seasonal Recipe | BySarahRae.com Quiche is one of my favorite make-ahead meals. Simply swap out a few ingredients and it works in every season. I made this one chock full of spring greens for a Mother's Day brunch (and then again for lunches the following week because it was so good.) This recipe uses both cheese and dairy free milk. It may seem odd, but it's about knowing my body and what works with it. For the most part cheese agrees with me, but straight up milk/cream do not. You could easily sub in dairy milk, vegan cheese or a gluten-free crust to make this quiche work for you.

Spring Greens Quiche
Author: Sarah Rae
Ingredients
  • 1 frozen pie crust (I use Wholly Wholesome ones)
  • 1 tablespoon butter or ghee
  • 2 spring onions, (white and light green parts) sliced thin
  • 2 cups chopped fresh spinach
  • 1 tablespoon butter or ghee
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • shredded parmesan cheese
  • crumbled goat cheese
  • chopped fresh dill
  • salt
  • pepper
Instructions
  1. Heat the butter/ghee in a medium sauce pan, over medium heat. Once melted added the spring onion and sauté for a couple minutes. Once softened, translucent and fragrant, add the spinach and cook just until the spinach is bright green and wilted. Add a good sprinkle salt and pepper and give everything one last stir before scooping the cooked veggies into a bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, almond milk and a dash of salt and pepper.
  3. Generously sprinkle the bottom of your pie crust with shredded parmesan. Spread the cooked veggie mix on top of the parmesan. Pour the egg mix over the veggies & parmesan. Sprinkle some crumbled goat cheese and chopped dill on top.
  4. If your quiche seems really full, place the pie pan on a baking dish before putting it in the oven
  5. Cook at 375 degrees F for 40-50 minutes or until the quiche is just set. Allow to cool for a few minutes or cool to room temp, cover with foil and store in the fridge until ready to serve.

The veggie add-ins for this particular recipe were inspired by what was available at the farmer's market that week, so don't be afraid to mix it up. Sautéed broccoli or grilled zucchini would also be delicious. A couple cloves of minced garlic could easily be subbed for the spring onion, see what I mean?
