spinach & mushroom quiche

I had been wanting to make a quiche for sometime, it is a quick, inexpensive dinner – perfect for weeknights! When I saw some whole wheat pie crusts at Whole Foods I knew it was destined to be. (I’ve never taken note of pie crusts before because I wasn’t a baker until Sunday)

For some reason spinach and mushrooms immediately come to mind so I went with it. And since I generally have a drawer of cheese I rolled with gouda leftover from the Barbeclette because I knew it would melt well. I served it with an herb salad with some kale added in for good measure.

It was delicious and I will definitely be adding quiches to my weeknight meal rotation. The combinations are endless!

    I know you posted this a long time ago, but you are my “go to” for recipe ideas. I made this for my sister’s baby shower this past weekend, because we did a brunch…it turned out great! I used this recipe for inspiration and then changed out the ingredients and did an all cheese and ham one. The spinach and mushroom was the first to go…it was a huge success!
