Most people think of quiche as a complicated, time-consuming meal, but it is one of our favorite go-to meals when we’re in a hurry. We also tend to eat a lot of them this time of year because we are drowning in eggs, as our hens are extra productive after their winter holiday from laying.
What makes our spinach and goat cheese quiche recipe so quick and easy? No crust! This can be ready to pop in the oven in less than 15 minutes!
Spinach and Goat Cheese Quiche Recipe
1 1/2 cups whole milk (cow, goat, or sheep)
1/2 cup of flour
Pinch of salt
3-4 cups spinach
5-6 oz goat’s cheese sliced into small pieces
Green onions, optional
Set your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and by the time your oven is warm, your quiche will be ready to pop in there.
Butter your quiche dish or pie plate. Arrange spinach in cooking dish, and top with goat cheese.
If you are using frozen spinach, thaw it in a colander by rinsing it with warm water. Squeeze the spinach to remove excess water. Otherwise, your quiche will be watery. Frozen spinach also takes longer to cook because the whole quiche will be much colder when you first put it in the oven.
Blend milk, eggs, flour, and salt in a blender until smooth. Although you can use any type of real milk in this recipe, alternative milk (soy, almond, coconut, etc) will yield disappointing results. Substitute other milk at your own risk, but if you find one that works, put your results in the comment section and be sure to indicate which brand of alternative milk you used.
Pour blended mixture over the spinach and cheese. Sprinkle green onions on top, if desired. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30-35 minutes, or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
We usually serve our quiche alongside a salad and rolls. If we are making the quiche for four or less people, we each have 1/4 of the whole pie, meaning that you would double the values in the Nutrition Facts below. If we have more than four people for lunch or dinner, we cut the quiche into eight pieces and make more side dishes. Or we make a second quiche with broccoli and cheddar so that everyone has a choice of which one they want. Some people will take a 1/8 slice from each!
*serving equals 1 slice, assuming 8 slices per quiche
