Spinach Mushroom Quiche

A little background... This past week was the holiday of Shavuot, celebrating the receiving of the Torah by the Israelites. The Ten Commandments are read this week as a part of the weekly reading portion. One tradition for Shavuot is eating dairy meals. Since we had not yet received the Torah, we did not know how to properly slaughter animals to eat meat on the holiday.  Instead, we prepared a dairy meal to celebrate receiving the Torah.

1/2 cup butter or substitute (1 stick)
1 small onion, chopped
6 oz. chopped spinach
4 oz. chopped white mushrooms
2 oz. herb and garlic goat cheese
4 eggs beaten
1 cup milk
3/4 cup cheddar
salt and pepper to taste
1 9-inch unbaked deep dish pie crust

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2.  Melt butter on medium heat in skillet and saute onion in butter. Mix in spinach, mushrooms, and goat cheese.
3.  In bowl, beat together eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Add grated cheddar cheese and pour mixture from skillet into bowl. Mix.
4.  Pour contents of bowl into the pie crust.
5.  Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Sprinkle the rest of the cheddar cheese on top and bake for another 10 minutes. You'll know it's done the same way you know if brownies are done: clean fork test. Allow to stand for 10 minutes or so before tucking in!


  1. Yummy. Too bad it makes so much. You should do a meal for one so I can make it :D


I'd love to hear from you and will reply happily!
