Quiche and Sambos Bento

Another variation of quiche, this time I made spinach and feta quiche. Here is the recipe :

Spinach and Feta Quiche
adapted from www.food.com

Ingredients :
1 package frozen shortcrust pastry dough
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups packed fresh spinach leaves, trimmed and washed thoroughly
4 large eggs
2⁄3 cup creme fraiche (you can also use heavy cream or milk)
1⁄3 cup crumbled feta cheese
6 cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
fresh ground black pepper

Method :
1. Two hours before making the quiche, take the dough out of the freezer to defrost.
2. Lay the dough into either a 10 inch quiche or springform baking pan, make sure to have enough dough to form a crust around the edge.
3. Crumble the feta cheese onto the bottom of the crust.
4. Pour the olive oil into a saucepan and, when it is heated, throw in the spinach and cook until wilted.
5. Spread the spinach over the feta cheese.
6. Beat the eggs, garlic and creme fraiche together. Pour over top of the feta cheese and spinach.
7. Place cherry tomatoes on top of the quiche.
8. Sprinkle chives and ground pepper on top.
9. Bake at 350 F or 180 C for 45 minutes.
