Crustless Spinach Quiche

photo-2

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 5-6 oz fresh spinach
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup low-fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 8 extra large eggs

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 375F.   Spray a deep pie dish with nonstick spray.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and sautee the garlic.   Add the spinach and stir just until the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.  Transfer spinach to the pie dish, spread it to cover the bottom of the dish.  Layer the grated cheese on top of the spinach.

Beat the eggs with salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.  Pour the egg mixture over the spinach/cheese combination, and then use a fork to gently “stir” so the eggs, spinach, and cheese are evenly combined.

Bake about 35 minutes or until the mixture is completely set and starting to lightly brown.  Let cool about 5 minutes before cutting.

Makes 8 servings.
