Délicieux Spinach Mushroom Quiche

( Click for enlarged image )

Are you looking for an exotic one pot meal other than the usual routine ? Look no further as I have a tasty and filling quiche that is made with spinach, mushrooms, and cheese. This is my first attempt trying out a french cuisine and it came out pretty well and here is the recipe. The total process involves
  1. Preparing the base
  2. Preparing the filling
  3. Assembling n Baking
For Quiche Base

Ingredients
  • 1 cup flour
  • Flour for dusting
  • 6 tbsp unsalted cold butter
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 beaten egg
  • salt to taste
Mix the flour,baking powder and salt together nicely. Chop the butter and mix it with flour nicely with ur fingers. When butter incoporates into the flour nicely then add the beaten egg and mix it till it forms a soft round dough.

With a rolling pin making it into a 11 inch dia circle. Carefully shift into the greased pie pan.Press it softly against the pie pan and discard the extra dough on the edge.

Poke some holes into the base with a fork to avoid it to puff when it bakes.Keep it in fridge while u are making ur stuffing.

For Filling

Ingredients
  • 1.5 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1/2 onions
  • 2 finely chopped green chillies
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1/2 tsp dry basil
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt to taste
Heat oil in a pan add garlic,green chilli,onions and fry till onion become golden brown,add mushrooms,spinach,salt and cook for 5 min or till mushroom becomes soft. Evaporate all excess moisture then add chilli flakes,basil and mix nicely.Switch of the stove and let it cool.

For topping
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese ( i used cheddar and mozzarealla cheese)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
For topping, in a bowl beat the egg nicely,add milk, grate cheese salt pepper and mix nicely and keep aside

For Assembly

Preheat the oven 350 F.

Take out the quiche crust from the fridge. Spread the mushroom stuffing evenly. Then pour the milk mixture on top of it evenly. It is should be 1/2 cm below the top edge.

Put it in oven and bake it for 40-45 min or till the crust become golden brown and the topping too.After baking pull it out from oven and let it rest for 10 min. Slice it and enjoy.

Note: You can avoid egg by adding 1/2 cup grated cheese while making Quiche base n add more cheese on the top before baking
