Spinach and Tomato Quiche

Spinach and Tomato Quiche

Introduction

Tastes great and is low in calories.
It is a really good healthy quiche recipe. Instead of pastry as the crust you use the brown rice. It turns out really good and tastes fantastic! The whole family enjoyed it, if fact hubby had 3 pieces.

  • Brown rice makes the crust fall apart. Just use crust next time. Frozen spinach takes WAY too much time to pat dry. I didn't have too much of a problem with it, but family didn't like it that much. Said it had too much spinach taste in it. (I think due to frozen spinach) Try different recipe - 6/12/12

  • This wasn't bad, just bland. I plan on making again with a few modifications. I'm going to put about 3/4 the package of spinach in instead of the full package, and use pepperjack cheese instead of swiss and hopefully that will add some flavor. - 1/18/10

  • 2nd time was better, but not great. I used fresh instead of frozen spinach, but the end product was watery. I may try again with more modifications, but each try is getting better. - 8/14/09

  • This was great. The entire family loved it -- even those that don't like quiche. Recipe does not show what to do with scallions -- so you'll need to add that. But this is a great quick meal - 8/6/09

  • Wow - I thought this was terrific! I love quiche, but don't want to use up all of my calories in one setting. I used fat-free half and half & a bit more swiss. It was incredible! - 4/2/09
