SPINACH & GOAT CHEESE QUICHE

Winter is here which means my garden has stopped growing tomatoes. I had a full batch leftover of the last few tomatoes grown so I've been integrating them into many of my recipes.

A quiche is one of those simple yet elegant dishes that can be easily prepared with numerous ingredients for a fancy breakfast or quick dinner. It's also a great way to use leftover ingredients. I had a few ounces of goat cheese leftover, my tomatoes, & a tart shell in the freezer. Some other great ideas for a tart shells can be a ham, broccoli, & cheese quiche or even a seafood tart.


INGREDIENTS

1 tart shell (frozen, pre-made or homemade)
4 eggs
1 cup chopped spinach
1/2 cup arugula
2 oz goat cheese
chopped cherry tomatoes
salt & black pepper to taste


METHOD

Thaw tart shell as directed.

Chop spinach & cherry tomatoes. In a bowl, whisk eggs together & add spinach.

Using a fork, pierce the tart shell & bake at 300 degrees for 5 mins on the middle rack.

Add egg mixture & bake for 15 mins. Once the quiche is half baked, top with goat cheese & chopped cherry tomatoes.

Broil on low heat for 15 mins & top with salt & black pepper to serve with a side of arugula.
