Spinach and comte cheese quiche

Another weekend just went by. I hope you had a great one, full of good moments : sports, quality time with family and friends, and cooking and baking of course !! Speaking of which, you may have had to answer to this terrible and recurring question : what shall I cook today ?

Today, I suggest a multi-function recipe ! Appetizer, starter or main meal. Not bad hey ? And even better : easy to cook and rather healthy. Interested ?

So let’s cook a spinach and comte cheese quiche. It’s different form the usual quiche lorraine (that I love, don’t get me wrong ) and it’s a good way to eat this specific vegetable that some of us don’t like …

Spinach is considered as a high nutritional value. Wikipedia even mentions that it’s one of the best vitamin B9 know source and that a daily spinach dose could help prevent dementia and help the blood flow in the brain.

Well … if it helps keeping us sane, it should be included in all health care programs !!

To put it in a nutshell, it’s healthy and tasty, let’s go for it !

Today’s recipe can be cooked with any kind of pastry. It’s up to you or up to what’s available in your fridge …
