Quiches are probably one of the easiest, most versatile dishes out there. There is so much room to be creative with a quiche. I've made everything from caprese inspired quiches using tomato, basil, and mozzarella to Korean-inspired quiches using kimchi and spam. Sundried tomatoes with spinach and feta is another favorite combination of mine.
One ingredient I'm particularly obsessed about is Greek yogurt. I've substituted Greek yogurt in many different recipes with great success, and quiche is no different! Every time a recipe calls for some sort of cream base, I will try substituting with Greek yogurt instead. I love the tangy bite that Greek yogurt imparts to a dish, not to mention how much healthier it is for you.
2 cups vegetable/meat combo of your choice (I used 1 cup frozen spinach, 1 medium onion, and 1 TB garlic)
1 TB oil or butter (I used coconut oil)
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup greek yogurt
3/4 cup shredded cheese
salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9" pie pan.
- Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add onions, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft. Add garlic and spinach, and continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes.
- In a large bowl (or throw everything in your blender), combine eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese, salt & pepper.
- Put the spinach/onion mixture on the bottom of the pie pan, then pour the egg mixture over it.
- Sprinkle some extra cheese on top if you'd like... it'll give your quiche a beautiful, golden-brown crust.
- Bake about 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
This is an extremely versatile recipe. I've played around with the ratios a lot. I've made it with 7 eggs and 5 eggs. I've used egg whites. I've made it with more cheese and less yogurt, or vice versa. I've used almond milk instead of whole milk. It's hard to go wrong no matter which way you swing. You can even turn these into mini quiches by using a muffin or cupcake pan instead - they freeze extremely well. My daughter gobbled up 3 mini quiches in one sitting the last time I made these.
What do you like to put in your quiche?
