Spinach & Pesto Quiche

Wait, what? It is February already? time is flying! and I haven’t been so good keeping up with my writing. My bad.

I have however cooked some super yummy vegetarian friendly dishes lately so I promise I will do my best to keep up and share share share!

Last weekend I made a Spinach and Pesto Quiche, so delicious. I had never made quiche before and I know, I know its egg based but we haven’t given up eggs yet.

IMG_1270Spinach and Pesto Quiche is super easy to make. I did cheat tho, I used a 9inch pie crust which was already made all I had to do was to pop in the oven. But hey if you are in a hurry you have to compromise sometimes.

You will need:
2 cups of chopped spinach

half an onion

1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

6 eggs

9′ inch pie crust.

IMG_1262First cut the onion into little pieces and cook in some butter (or olive oil) add the spinach after about 4 mins and cook both adding salt and pepper to taste (you can also add other spices at this point)

Set aside.

Mix the 6 eggs in a bowl, and add 2 table spoons of pesto sauce*

Add cooked spinach and onions to the egg and pesto mix.

IMG_1263Fill the pie crust with the mix, and place in the oven for about 50mins or until you notice that the center of the quiche is no longer runny.

and there you have it! simple and delicious meal ready! you can pair with a salad or a soup.

*for the pesto, if you want to make your own all you need is: Fresh basil, garlic and olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Blend everything in a food processor and you get your very own pesto.

What have you been cooking lately?
