Ingredients: (Serves 2)
5 ounce frozen spinach (drained and thawed) or 2 cups fresh spinach leaves,
Mushroom slices as per taste,
1/2 cup chopped scallions (only white) or red onions,
150gms shredded cheese (ricotta, mozarella, parmesan, cheddar or other),
2 tsp butter,
Salt and pepper to taste,
9″ pie pan or a baking dish.
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F).
Melt the butter in a pan/skillet and saute the onions, mushrooms and spinach until they are soft and cooked. In a bowl, beat the eggs, add salt and pepper. Then fold in the vegetables and cheese and whisk well. Grease the pie pan or baking dish. Then pour this mixture into the dish and spread properly. Then bake the quiche at the same temperature for around 25 minutes or till you see the crust has turned brown and the egg does not bubble any more. When done let it cool and then cut into pieces and serve in breakfast alongwith fruits or juice.
