Spinach Quiche Recipe

Updated on June 10, 2016

Easy Vegetable Quiche

Spinach is high in iron and calcium. It also contains rich levels of vitamin K, vitamin C, a few B-vitamins and of course an abundance of fiber. Popeye knew what he was doing for his body when he used to eat his spinach but not everyone can eat it from a can. This spinach casserole is a nice way to add the nutrients of spinach while providing a lot of favour and visual appeal to a simple meal.

"I'm strong to the finish, 'cause I eats me spinach."

It All Starts With The Ingredients

What might be a shocking addition to this recipe is the use of a secret (well not any more) ingredient - oatmeal. Cooked oatmeal provides some extra fiber and a thicker consistency to the dish overall. Oatmeal is a great basic item to have around the kitchen for any happy heart diet and a little can be added to almost anything because it virtually has no flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 300 g frozen spinach, thawed
  • 1 cup oatmeal, cooked and cooled
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 box chicken stuffing mix
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 cups skim milk
  • pepper

Preparation and Cooking

Before you begin mixing ingredients you need to take the frozen spinach by the handfuls and squeeze out excess water. After each section is squeezed loosen the bits into a bowl. You are not done with your hands yet -- crumble the oatmeal into same bowl as spinach. Add chopped red pepper, shredded cheese, stuffing mix, salt, and garlic powder. Combine mixture until contents look evenly blended. Coat a 9" x 13" baking dish with cooking spray and spread spinach mixture evenly in pan.

In another bowl lightly beat eggs and egg whites. Gradually add three cups of milk making sure to mix well. Pour slowly by cupfuls over spinach and cheese mixture to evenly coat. Bake in oven preheated to 350 degrees F for 45 - 50 minutes. Test with a toothpick to be certain.

This recipe can be cut into 8 meal size servings or 16 side dish servings. As a meal, I recommend serving with a side of fruit. Leftovers reheat well in microwave the next day.

Now go eat yer spinach, "A-gah-gah-gah-gah-gah-gah!"

      This sounds great. I would not have guessed "Oatmeal".
