Organic Whole Baby Bella Mushrooms, known for their rich, earthy flavor and firm texture, are a delightful culinary treat. Smaller than their mature counterparts, these mushrooms pack a flavor punch that pairs beautifully with a variety of ingredients. Our Baby Bella Mushroom and Spinach Quiche combines these flavorful fungi with fresh spinach, creamy cheese, and a custard-like filling, all nestled in a flaky crust. This dish is perfect for any meal, be it breakfast, brunch, lunch, or a light dinner.
Organic Whole Baby Bella Mushrooms https://greenelly.com/product/mother-earth-organic-whole-baby-bella-mushrooms-8-oz/ (2 cups, sliced)
Fresh Spinach (2 cups, roughly chopped)
Eggs (4, large)
Heavy Cream (1 cup)
Grated Gruyère Cheese (1 cup)
Pie Crust (1, pre-made or homemade)
Onion (1 medium, finely chopped)
Garlic (2 cloves, minced)
Olive Oil (2 tablespoons)
Nutmeg (a pinch)
Salt (to taste)
Black Pepper (to taste)
Steps to Prepare:
Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). If you’re using a pre-made pie crust, place it in a 9-inch pie dish. If you’re making your own, prepare it and then lay it in the dish.
Cook the Filling: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, cooking until soft and translucent, about 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and sliced Baby Bella mushrooms, sautéing until the mushrooms are tender and have released most of their moisture, around 5-7 minutes. Add the spinach, cooking until it wilts down, about 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and nutmeg, stir well, and remove from heat.
Prepare the Egg Mixture: In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and heavy cream until well combined. Stir in the grated Gruyère cheese. Season with a bit more salt and pepper.
Assemble the Quiche: Spread the mushroom and spinach mixture evenly on the bottom of the pie crust. Pour the egg and cream mixture over the vegetables.
Bake: Place the quiche in the preheated oven and bake for about 35-45 minutes, or until the filling is set and the top is lightly golden. To ensure the middle is cooked, insert a knife into the center—if it comes out clean, the quiche is ready.
Serve: Allow the quiche to cool for a few minutes before slicing. It can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature.
