The ingredients and cooking method for a delicious Spinach, Ricotta & Pinenut Quiche

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 170 deg.
  2. Grease and then line a quiche tin or cake tin with the 2 sheets of pastry so that the sides are at least 4cm high. Line the pastry with baking paper and blind bake for approx. 20mins using dried beans, rice or baking weights. Set aside.
  3. In a pan, sauté the onions and garlic in a little olive oil. Once soft add in the spinach and cook until wilted. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, cream, mixed herbs, lemon zest, 3/4C parmesan and a good pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. To assemble the quiche, spread the spinach mix in the pastry shell, dollop over spoonful’s of the ricotta and sprinkle over the pinenuts. Pour in the egg mix evenly to cover the spinach and ricotta, careful not to overfill past the pastry.
  6. Sprinkle over the remaining 1/4C of grated parmesan and bake for 20-30 mins until lightly golden and set.
  7. Let sit for 10mins to cool a little, before slicing up and serving.
