Spinach and feta quiche & salad – a big veggie dinner
After the intensely rich casserole last night, I wanted something light and preferably meatless for dinner. Since I had a huge bag of spinach in the fridge – and a new block of feta cheese – I figured that would be the base of whatever we had. Spinach & feta quiche fit the bill nicely.
I found a simple recipe online: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/user/101281/recipe/spinach-and-feta-quiche.
I made some minor changes. My pie dish was slightly larger, and so I used 4 eggs, 4 handfuls of spinach, and added some thinly sliced mushrooms.
All it needed on the side was a quick salad. This was made from shredded iceberg lettuce, half a grated carrot, a few florets of broccoli (grated) and a bunch of spring onions. I feel healthier already.
The herby shortcrust pastry was delicious! The whole quiche came out looking gorgeous, and tasted great. Son even went back for seconds 😊
