Veggie Mediterranean Quiche

Share

I am trying to get my family to eat more vegetables and this Veggie Mediterranean Quiche has turned out to be a real winner in my home. I love it because it’s so easy especially because I buy a prepared pie crust. This recipe uses sun-dried tomatoes. In the store, you can usually find two types of sun-dried tomatoes: dry ones or ones packed in olive oil. You can use either for this recipe. If you use dry ones, rehydrate them with water. If you get oil-packed ones, simply remove them from the oil before using.

Make a spinach and onion filling for the quiche by sautéing onion, garlic, red pepper, spinach, olives, oregano, parsley and feta. Whisk up a filling from eggs, milk and cheddar cheese. Pour the egg mixture over the spinach filling and bake in the oven for 50-55 minutes.

To make my Veggie Mediterranean Quiche, you will need the following ingredients:
