And I dabbled with quiche…

Four years ago, on one of our trips to France, a host family served us an unfamiliar dish for dinner. It was some kind of a savory pie made of eggs, cheese, and greens (which I later found out to be spinach). I asked our host what that dish was called and she told me, they called it quiche. It was a regional specialty and it was delicious!

After that pleasant gastronomic experience, I took a mental note on replicating the dish as one of my experimental goals.

Finally, yesterday, I decided to give it a try. I took a recipe from the net, scanned the essentials, and improvised.


half  a bunch of spinach (around 7 to 8 stalks)

1 clove garlic

half of medium sized onion

about 1oo grams of shredded torokeru cheese (i’m in japan… but the recipes called for feta and sometimes cheddar)

2 eggs

about 1/4 cup of milk

salt and pepper to taste

For the pie crust: 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour, 1/2 cup of butter, about 2 tbsp water about 1 tsp salt and sugar

1. First I made my pie crust. Chilled it for about 45 mins. Rolled it out and prebaked in the oven at 180 deg. C for about 20 minutes.

2. Then, I made the filling. Sauteed the onions, garlic, and spinach in butter and added some of the cheese.

3. I scooped the filling ito the prebaked pie crust.

4. I beat the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and poured it onto the pie crust. I mixed it around a bit for the filling to go everywhere in the pie.

5. I preheated the oven to 190 deg. C and baked the quiche for around 15 minutes.

6. I sprinkled some of the cheese on top, and baked it again for another 30 to 45 minutes or so. Just until you see the center set.

And the result?

Tada! (Not perfect looking, but it really tasted nice.)

    Ahhh.. quiche. I first read about it being mentioned in one of my favorite comic book, Bone. So that is how it looks like.
