One of the best things about this spinach and mushroom quiche recipe is that it’s super simple to make: we use frozen pie crust, so other than taking a few minutes to cook the veggies and beat the egg mixture, you simply let your quiche do its thing in the oven while you tend to more important things.
The result is a creamy and savory vegetarian quiche with just a hint of garlic and a buttery and flaky crust. It’s a stunner of a dish, and one that can be eaten for breakfast, brunch, or served with a side salad for lunch or dinner.
