Spinach Quiche


Dinner party or a casual Sunday brunch, this tart is perfect for any occasion. This is a great vegetarian main course that can also be an amazing picking treat or leftover lunch. Beautiful flavour combination and colours will make everyone want more.

Ingredients:

For cheese filling
  • 6-8 cups fresh spinach
  • small bunch of scallions
  • 1 small onion
  • 200g mascarpone
  • 100g Roquefort cheese
  • 1 tbs butter, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 300ml sour cream
  • some cayenne pepper and black pepper
For the base
  • 150g all purpose flour
  • 85g of butter
  • some salt and pepper
  • some water 


Start with making the tart base. Add flour to a bowl. Sprinkle some salt and pepper over it and mix it well.  Add softened butter and 2-3 tbs of water until all the ingredients are incorporated.  Form a ball, cover with cling foil and put it into refrigerator for about an hour. You can skip this step if you're in a hurry or you can buy a ready base as well.


Chop the onion and cook until translucent. Add the spinach and cook until wilted.

In a blender, add eggs, mascarpone, Roquefort and spices and blend. Add scallions and pulse another few times.

Roll out the pastry and transfer to a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes in 190C / 375F. 

Take the tart out of the oven. Fill with spinach and onion, and cover with the cheese filling. Bake for about 30-35min. Serve warm or cold.

Enjoy!
