½ Sliced red pepper
½ lb. Sliced mushrooms
7-10 Spears of asparagus, sliced into 2” pieces
1 Cup packed fresh spinach*
1 Premade pie crust
1 ½ Cups whole milk
4-5 Eggs, depending on size
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
¼ tsp. each of salt and pepper
½ Cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Preheat your oven to 375°.
Saute the olive oil, peppers, and mushrooms in a pan on medium-high heat for 2 minutes.
Add in the asparagus, and cook for 4-6 more minutes.
Add the spinach and cook until wilted. Set veggie mixture aside.
Put the pie crust in a pie pan, add the veggies in a layer on the bottom, and set it aside.
Whisk the eggs, nutmeg, salt, and pepper together.
Pour the egg mixture over the veggies.
Sprinkle the cheese over the eggs and veggies.
Bake your quiche for 35-40 minutes. The top should appear golden brown before cooling 5 minutes and serving.
