Bake With Bizzy -- Mini-Spinach & Avocado Quiches



I had leftovers from the holidays for tonight's dinner but I came across this recipe on That Skinny Chick Can Bake and on Jovina Cooks Italian and I must have been programmed to make it because I did, despite the fact, I had no need to cook tonight.


I have no regrets. These little muffin like quiches are delicious and go with almost anything. I did make some changes to make these kosher (no meat and dairy at the same meal). I also had no mushrooms so I subbed avocado

Individual Spinach and Avocado Quiches

1 small onion, diced
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained and squeezed dry
Olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 avocado, chopped
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
A few gratings of fresh nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 container (15 ounces) whole milk ricotta cheese
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 12 muffin pan cups with nonstick cooking spray.

In a skillet, cook and stir onion and red bell pepper for a few minutes or until tender. Add avocado, spinach, pepper, nutmeg and salt. Cook and stir over medium heat about 3 minutes or until liquid evaporates. Remove from heat.

Combine ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses in large bowl. Add eggs and mix well. Add cooled spinach mixture; mix well.

Divide mixture evenly among prepared muffin cups. Bake 25 minutes or until filling is set. Let stand 10 minutes. Run a knife around perimeter of quiches to help release. Serve .

Makes 12 small "muffins".

Time to look back: This is ALL DESSERT WEEK

    Sweet of you to invite me over Chaya, but due to time factors I do not participate in link parties. Wish I did have the time that it takes to participate and reciprocate to all the entrants though. Enjoy the day!

  14. I have never heard of avocado in quiche but it makes so much sense. Beautiful little pies. Thanks you for sharing this on foodie friday. I will post your party on my party page.

  15. Chaya, thank you for featuring my White Chocolate Macadamia Almond Cookies. They were a real hit at our golf tournament, disappearing before all the other gluten-ful cookies. Dispelling the myths that gluten free must be tasteless and boring.

    Your quiches look really good. I've never baked avocado but I have made chocolate pudding and the Fudgesicles that I linked up this week.

    Be well!
