The Best Rustic Ricotta Spinach Quiche: Easy 1-hour recipe of the best ever spinach quiche with whole wheat crust and creamy spinach ricotta filling.
This ricotta spinach tart is one of my absolute favorites. It’s easy, healthy, tender, cheesy and it’s simply the best. Spinach is in season right now, so the perfect time to make this quiche is right now!
I made this spinach quiche countless times in recent years, and it always comes out great! I adopted it from my husband’s recipe. The best part about this quiche is that it’s so easy you can make it on a weekday. The whole wheat crust and the filling come together in no more than 30 minutes, then the quiche is backed in the oven for about 40 minutes. To make it extra wholesome and rich, I poach eggs in the filling. This makes it a prefect meal for breakfast or brunch. I would actually eat it any time of the day, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. It would most certainly be a star of any festive table, be it Easter or family gathering.
This spinach quiche super delicious and wholesome, while being healthy and nutritious. Plus, I’m a huge cheese fan. If you are, too, you will love this quiche. The filling is made of creamy ricotta and umami-flavored Parmesan, combined with sautéed spinach with garlic. If you don’t count salt, black pepper and water, that you most likely already have at your kitchen, this quiche only requires 8 ingredients! It’s seriously the best thing you can make with spinach and ricotta.
It’s a good idea to incorporate more spinach in your diet. The more, the better. Although nowadays frozen spinach is available the whole year round, fresh spinach is obviously more nutritious. Unless you are Popeye, opt for fresh spinach. It’s loaded with nutrients and is most certainly good for your body! It’s low in fat and cholesterol, while being high in antioxidants, zinc, fiber, protein, as well as vitamins A, C, E, K and B6, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, etc. That means that it’s good for your cardiovascular system, it regulates blood pressure and protects your body from free radicals. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects. Bottom line: spinach is one of the healthiest vegetables, with multiple health benefits. Although it’s really tasty fresh in salads or sautéed in stir-fries or as a side dish, my favorite way to enjoy it is this spinach quiche. Check the recipe below and make it yourself.
