The gooey and yummy stuff always come with cream, yet a healthier option can always contain the greens. This time we are using spinach. Recipe by my sister.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup frozen spinach
  • 3 tbs flour
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 1 chicken stock cube (maggi/ knorr) I like knorr.
  • 1 egg
  • black pepper
  • chopped onion
  • mozzarella cheese
  • cumin powder
Pastry ingredients:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup really cold butter cubes
  • 5 tbs ice cold water
Method: 
(Pastry)
  1. Mx the salt and flour together
  2. add cubes of butter and mix using a knife (as if chopping the butter in the flour)
  3. add the cold water and mix using a ford until the batter is more of a proper dough (you might need more iced water)
  4. wrap your dough in cling film and keep it in the fridge until the time of baking to cool off a bit. Take pieces of dough in the cupcake or muffin tray and spread them around using your fingers. (easy much). Poke your dough cups using a knife
  5. bake your pastry cups for 10 mins or until they become golden brown
(The Quiche)
  • The Cream filling:
    1. Use a bechamel recipe and follow the steps, only difference is to add the egg, the chicken stock cube and black pepper.
  • The Spinach:
    1. Oil in a small deep pan, add the onions and let brown a tiny bit
    2. add the spinach to it
    3. add the salt, pepper, and cumin and stir
    4. keep it on low temperature until the water released from the spinach dries out
    5. shred some mozzarella cheese and then add the spinach to the cream mixture along with the spinach mixture. (all together)
    6. fill your baked pastry cups with your cream spinach mixture and sprinkle some cheese. Put the tray back in the oven until the cheese melts and becomes lovely brown.
