My daughters have come up with a new name for this mushroom spinach quiche. They call it their healthy breakfast pie. No matter what you decide to call it, I assure you it will have you smiling. This quiche is packed full of vegetables and with the Silk almond milk and fresh spinach, it is a great way to get your day started off right. A healthy breakfast has everyone feeling better.
Mushroom Spinach Quiche
You may use a 9-inch pre-made crust or make your own using the ingredients below.
- 1 cup sprouted grain (or white) flour
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 3 tbsp Silk Unsweetened almond beverage
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups Silk Unsweetened almond beverage
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 F
Prepare bought crust as it says on the package or make your own using these instructions.
In a medium bowl, mix the dry crust ingredients. Stir in the oil and Silk almond milk. Keep stirring until the mixture sticks together and forms a ball.
Press the dough evenly onto bottom and sides of a deep, 9-inch pie pan. If it is too sticky add a bit of flour to your hands for this step. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool.
While the crust is in the oven you can prepare the filling.
Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
Add in the mushrooms and sauté until they begin to brown, about 8 minutes.
Add 1 1/2 cups of spinach and continue to stir until the spinach wilts.
Next you will pour the mushrooms and spinach into prepared crust and top with remaining 1/2 cup of fresh spinach leaves.
In a different bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients (eggs, Silk salt, pepper and nutmeg) and then pour that egg mixture over mushrooms and spinach that are in the pie crust.
Bake in preheated oven for 40-50 minutes until set.
Cool for 10-15 minutes and serve.
Please do not limit this to breakfast either. Quiche makes a great lunch-time meal or a light supper. This recipe is a favourite for our family and I love that it easily incorporates healthy ingredients for a healthy lifestyle. Enjoy!
