Springtime Quiche: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • Pate Brisee1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbs butter
  • 4 Tbs cold water
  • Filling1/2 cup diced shallots
  • 1 cup shredded spinach
  • 1/2 cup shredded arugula
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 3/4 cup half and half
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground or grated nutmeg
  • 1 tsp minced lemon peel
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup whole-wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Mix well. Using a pastry cutter, blend in butter until mixture is crumbly and pea-sized. Add cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time and mix gently and briefly with a fork after each addition. Mixture should begin to bind together after the last tablespoon of water is added. If too dry, add 1 more tablespoon water. Gather mixture into a ball and let rest for 5 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Lightly flour a flat surface and roll dough into a large circle, 12 to 14 inches in diameter. Gently press into a 9" pie pan and flute edges. Bake for 10 minutes or until crust is just beginning to turn golden brown.
  • In a large saute pan, saute shallots, spinach, arugula and mushrooms in olive oil over medium heat until tender, about 2 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine milk, half and half and eggs and beat until well combined. Add salt, pepper, nutmeg, lemon peel, cheeses, bread crumbs and sauteed vegetables.
  • Pour into baked pie shell and bake for 30 minutes or until filling is set. A knife inserted in the center will come out clean. Let cool slightly and cut into 8 slices.
