- 1 pie crust
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion - finely chopped
- 3 cloves garlic - minced
- 3 cups mushrooms - sliced
- 2 cups spinach - fresh
- 2 medium tomatoes - thickly sliced
- 1 ½ tablespoon dijon mustard
- 6 eggs - room temperature
- 1 cup sour cream - crème fraiche
- salt and pepper to taste
- Pre-heat the oven to 350°F / 175°C degrees.
- Grease a deep pie tin, or baking dish and line it with your crust.
- Poke holes with a fork all around the bottom.
- Line the crust with aluminum foil, and cover with pastry weights, or dried beans or rice, then pre-bake the crust in your heated oven for about 15 minutes. Remove the foil and weights, and bake uncovered for about 5 more minutes, or until starting to brown.
- Remove from oven and let cool until you’re ready to fill it. While the crust is baking you can prepare the mushrooms and egg filling.
- Sautee the onion in olive oil over medium heat until it starts browning, about 3 – 4 minutes.
- Add the garlic and sautee for a couple minutes more.
- Increase the heat to medium high, add the mushrooms and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
- Stirring frequently, cook until most of the liquid is evaporated and mushrooms have halved in size, about 10 minutes.
- Place in a strainer, and let drain and cool until you need them.
- To make the egg filling, beat the eggs with the sour cream and salt and pepper with a whisk until completely combined, about a minute.
- Spread the dijon mustard on the bottom of the pre-cooked dough.
- Add the drained mushrooms and spread evenly around the bottom.
- Add the fresh spinach pushing it down slightly to pack it tighter.
- Pour the egg mixture over the spinach, making sure to cover it all.
- Pat the tomato slices with a paper towel, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and arrange on top of the quiche, pushing down slightly to make sure the egg covers them partly.
- Bake the quiche in the oven for about 30 – 40 minutes, or until puffed up and set.
