Recipe of the Week

Here’s a combo that we have really enjoyed.

Whole Wheat Pie Crust

2 cups whole wheat flour (freshly milled if possible)
2/3 cup olive oil (I plan to try coconut oil as well…probably best for a sweet pie)
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup water

Mix together until a ball forms. Press into pie plate until it reaches the top edge. Add filling of your choice. Cook as directed in recipe.

Spinach Quiche

6 large eggs, beaten
3/4 cup cream
3/4 cup milk
Salt and pepper
2 cups chopped fresh baby spinach
1/2 pound bacon (nitrate-free), cooked and crumbled
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 whole-wheat pie crust

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine the eggs, cream, salt, and pepper and whisk. Add spinach, bacon, onion powder, and about 1/2 cup of the cheese. Layer about 1/2 cup of the cheese at the bottom of the pie crust, then pour the egg mixture on top. Top with the last 1/2 cup of the cheese. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the egg mixture is set. Cut into 8 wedges.

Assembled and about to go into the oven.

Done!
