Recipe for Spinach Quiche

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. (15ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups (270g) shredded Muenster cheese
  • ¼ (1ml) tsp. salt
  • ¼ (1ml) tsp. ground black pepper

Directions

Heat oil in skillet. Saute onions in oil until softened. Stir in spinach, cooking until leaves are very wilted.

In a medium mixing bowl mix together eggs, cheese, salt, and pepper to your liking. Stir in the spinach and onion and pour into a greased pie pan or casserole dish.

Bake at 350 degrees F (175C) for 30-40 minutes, until eggs are set and top is lightly browned. Keep an eye on the dish the last ten minutes of the cooking.

The eggs can burn pretty easily. You may need to adjust your temperature a bit as well; if your oven tends to be overly hot, you might end up with a burnt outer edge and a mushy not-set center.

Health Benefits of Spinach

Everyone knows spinach is healthy. It help you lose weight, too. Here's why:

  • Like all veggies, spinach is a "0" on the glycemic index. That means it doesn't at all stimulate the release of insulin (the fat-storage hormone).

  • Spinach is a good source of fiber. Spinach helps you feel full without adding many extra calories to your plate.

  • Spinach is an excellent source of iron, folic acid, magnesium, manganese, and Vitamins A, C, and K.

  • It contains more protein than other vegetables. Protein requires more energy to digest, which means your body burns more calories when digesting spinach than other foods.

Spinach is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Find ways to work it into your diet more often, and you'll not only be healthier, but you'll lose more weight too!
