French Spinach Quiche is made with a simple pastry crust (with flour, butter and water) that is filled with a savory egg and creamy batter. I personally go for a veggie quiche most of the time but it is wonderful with chicken, meat, seafood, cheese or herbs mixed in as well.

What I present today is a classic timeless recipe and it always makes for an impressive brunch (or lunch). You’ll love leftovers too!

7. After 30 minutes, now roll out the dough on a lightly floured board. Lightly dust the top of the dough. Roll until the dough is about 1/8 inch thick. [BTW, while the dough rests in the ref, one could jump to the next steps to save time.]

8. Transfer the dough to a 9-10-inch (24-25cm) pie pan. Evenly press the pastry onto the bottom and up the sides of your pan. Trim off the excess dough off the top of the pan.

10. First we will bake the crust without putting the filler on. For this preheat your oven to 350F (175C). Here is the pro tip, blind baking: line a baking paper over the dough.

11. Now pour dry beans, rice or pie weights over the baking paper. This is to ensure pie remains in shape and does not puff during first baking. Bake it for 15 min.

13. Now the quiche crust is ready, lets make the batter which we will pour over the filler. For this, take a medium sized bowl and beat eggs.
