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!

    Interesting transformation (non-baker to baker) in such a short period of time (Sunday). You must have taken the short course.
