Tomato Spinach Quiche

Tomato Spinach Quiche

I can eat quiche for any meal, any time, hot or cold. My favorite thing about this summer-inspired quiche is the crust. It is made with olive oil instead of butter, and has a distinct flavor that I just love. I make the crust and filling in my Thermomix®, since it kneads the dough super quick, pre-cooks the veggies and whips up the egg filling in a jiffy.

You definitely want to bake the crust for about 10 minutes before filling it to avoid having an under-baked, mushy crust! You can experiment with different vegetables for this quiche, but the cooking time may vary depending on how many watery veggies you are adding to it. I use goat cheese for this recipe, but you can also use cheddar or gruyere.
