Easy Tomato-Malabar Spinach Quiche
Source: based on a recipe found at http://blog.charlotefresh.net/2011/008/04 (Entered by Janice Matthews)
A quick and easy summer brunch or supper dish.
Variations: If you don’t have Malabar spinach, you could substitute another type of green leafy vegetable. For an extra hearty dish, layer 1 c. diced pan-fried (hash brown) potatoes on top of the other veggies before adding the egg mixture.
Step by Step Instructions
- Preliminaries: Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and place pie crust in pan. Slice the tomatoes, squeeze them gently, and let them drain for a few minutes. Mix eggs, milk, and half the cheddar cheese, and add salt and pepper to taste, if desired.
- Place drained tomatoes in an even layer on the bottom of the crust. Sprinkle with more salt and pepper if desired. Layer sliced onions on top of the tomatoes, and evenly distribute the minced garlic. Top with spinach and half the basil. (If doing variation with hash browns, layer them on top.)
- Pour egg mixture evenly over the vegetable layers. Layer with remaining basil. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese over the top.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes until set. Eat and enjoy! (Or let cool, then refrigerate. It's also good cold!)
