We all know a plane ticket to France is expensive but letting a dish transport you to the French countryside is anything but! This affordable spinach and cheese quiche is a brunch lover’s dream come true.
Here’s what you’ll need:
-4 cups of spinach (or half spinach, half rainbow chard)
-1 cup of mushrooms
-1 cup cheese (½ cup brie, ½ cup fresh mozzarella)
-1 cup of milk
-Sauté the spinach and mushrooms in a pan with olive oil. Leave aside.
-For the egg mixture, whisk together the eggs, milk, and a touch of black pepper. Then gently fold in the cheese to the mixture.
-Layer the sautéed spinach and mushrooms on the bottom of a pie tin, and pour the egg mixture on top.
-Pop it in the oven at 325 for 45 minutes and then you’ve got yourself a beautiful quiche!
This is a really healthy French brunch. There’s protein with eggs, iron with spinach, calcium with cheese, and I’m not using a crust or butter to eliminate unnecessary carbs. And if you’re shopping at your local farmers market, you know that the produce and dairy are organic. Local and clean produce is significantly more delicious! You must try it for yourself.
