Spinach and Cheese Quiche
If you'd prefer to use fresh spinach, you'll need about 8 cups of washed trimmed spinach leaves. Cook them in a large saucepan with only the water that clings to them, stirring as needed, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Drain well and finely chop.
Makes 12 servings
One 12-ounce can evaporated skimmed milk
1/3 cup low-fat cottage cheese
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 egg whites
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
One 10-ounce box frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
Plain Pie Crust, baked and cooled
1. Preheat the oven to 425° F. In a medium bowl, whisk the milk, cottage cheese, Parmesan, eggs, egg whites, salt and pepper.
2. Place the pie plate on a jelly-roll pan; spread the spinach over the pie crust, then pour the filling over the spinach. Bake 15 minutes; reduce the oven temperature to 350° F and bake until the filling is set, 20 minutes longer. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
