Spinach Cheddar Quiche


Here is another delicious quiche recipe perfect for Easter brunch! Make this Spinach Cheddar Quiche along with the Italian Sausage Sweet Red Pepper Quiche to give your family and friends some variety! You can be proud knowing you are serving something nutritious and packed with plenty of veggies and lean protein! 


The crust is simply a Cali'flour Foods cauliflower crust. Skip the traditional pie crust and swap it for a cauliflower crust. A traditional Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust is 800 Calories, 96 grams of Carbs, and 8 grams of Protein for the entire crust! Say it isn't so! That isn't even including the filling! 

Sure, you could always make a crustless quiche, but it tastes so much better with the crusts from Cali'flour Foods. Trust me! I tried it both ways! It adds a little extra flavor and texture to the quiche. If you don't have these crusts, I would definitely skip the traditional pie crust and make it crustless. Those extra calories and carbs are just not worth it. Your health is worth so much more!

I hope you enjoy this yummy quiche!


Spinach Quiche

Ingredients:
4 eggs (1 1/2 Leans with egg whites)
2 egg whites 
 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained or 1 1/2 cups cooked spinach (3 Greens)
 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (1 Condiment)
 1 cup shredded 2% sharp cheddar cheese (1 Lean)
 1/2 tsp garlic salt (2 Condiments)
 1/4 tsp pepper (1/2 Condiment)
 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese (2 Condiments)
 1 Cali-flour Foods Crust (1/2 Lean, 3 Greens)


Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove pizza crust from freezer to thaw.
Spray a small skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Add spinach and cook for 5 minutes or until excess moisture is cooked away. Remove from heat and let cool.
In a bowl, whisk eggs, egg whites and unsweetened almond milk together. Stir in cheddar cheese and cooked spinach. Add garlic salt, pepper and grated parmesan cheese.
Grease a 9 inch pie pan. When crust is thawed, center into pie pan. The crust will stay elevated in the pan, do NOT press into shape or it will break! Once crust is centered on pan, place in oven for 5 minutes. The heat will form the crust to the pan. For extra crisp on the crust, broil on high for 2 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and add egg mixture.
Bake crust for 45 minutes or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove and let cool in pie dish for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

3 Servings (1/3 of quiche) with
1 Lean, 2 Greens (still need 1 more per serving), and 1.8 Condiments per serving
