This Vegetarian Spinach Mushroom Quiche filled with gruyere cheese, spinach, and sautéed mushrooms. A tasty way to get your veggies in.
I think quiche is the best year round but it’s really great at the holidays.
Number one because almost everyone likes quiche.
It’s easy to make.
And can be made ahead of time!
Which is key to me.
I make sure to have a few flavors of quiche when my parents come to town.
Quiche can be eaten as breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Or even a hearty snack.
Also a great way to sneak veggies into a dish.
As I did with this Vegetarian Spinach Mushroom Quiche.
This time the veggies are spinach and mushrooms.
You can always add more or less depending on your tastes.
I used a Gruyere cheese but Swiss cheese or a gouda would be yummy as well.
For bigger crowds, this recipe can be doubled no problem.
Looking for a good pie pan?
I love this one.
Emile Henry stuff is on the pricier side but I LOVE every piece I own from them.
I also have this pan which is nice too and a little less money.
That’s the pan in the photos.
Hope you had a lovely holiday and get ready…less than a month and it’s Christmas!
P.S. It’s a great day to buy my cookbook Holy Sweet!
