After a very loooooooooooooong time, here is a post on a delicious italian/french dish, Spinach Corn Quiche.
Quiche is a favorite dish for many and for those unaware of it, Quiche is a savory, open-faced pastry crust with a filling of savory custard with cheese, seafood/Meat and/or vegetables…The choice is yours. Quiche can be served hot or cold. It is part of french cuisine but is also popular in other countries, particularly as party food.
Here i have made Quiche with Corn and Spinach but there are many tasty things that you can add to this dish depending on the contents of your fridge. For a very healthy option, you can prepare the crust using wheat flour instead of plain flour. Your kids would enjoy being a part of this making and would enjoy press the crust batter on the pie/tart plate.
