Sun-dried Tomato and Spinach Quiche #SundaySupper

This Sun-dried Tomato and Spinach Quiche sure hit the spot when we needed a meatless meal for dinner. Bill was dropping not so subtle hints about making tuna casserole, so I was delighted that this egg and veggie pie was a home run.

A Meatless Meal

When I was first married, the only seafood Bill would eat was canned tuna and canned salmon–in casserole recipes from his mom. I’m happy to say I’ve expanded his horizons and he now enjoys shrimp, salmon, crab and even the occasional halibut. But when Lent rolls around, he gets a hankering for tuna casserole made with a can of cream of mushroom soup. This is the same casserole my mom OD’d my dad on when they were newlyweds. I actually don’t mind it, but I can’t handle the mega dose of sodium. So I pretend his repeated requests don’t register and figure out another meatless option. This loaded Mediterranean quiche was last week’s winner. I’ll make him his darn tuna casserole next Friday.

Spinach Quiche

The base of this quiche is nothing special. Eggs, half and half and some seasonings are the usual suspects. I added some defrosted frozen chopped spinach, red bell pepper, sun-dried tomatoes and chunks of feta to push this to the next level. It made a magnificent Friday night meal, then a terrific weekend breakfast. I’m pretty sure this will become a regular on the Lent rotation! What is your favorite meatless meal??

Eggtastic Recipes from the Sunday Supper Tastemakers:

Today, the Sunday Supper team is sharing their favorite recipes featuring eggs. As Easter approached, my mom would buy a couple dozen eggs, pierce each end with a large needle and blow out the insides. We’d dye them and she’d hang them from a flowering branch in our living room. I think we ate loads of scrambled eggs on those days leading up to Easter. She needed this list!

    Dear Liz, quiche is always good, especially during Lent – love the flavor combination of spinach, su-dried tomatoes and feta that you used. Very spring like and very Italian looking (Ha!) – glad Bill enjoyed his meatless supper too!
    Picture perfect Sunday supper!

  2. Lynn@Happier Than A Pig In Mud says:

    I’ve been craving spinach and really do need to make more quiches-this looks great:@)

  3. You REALLY can bake, Liz. This savoury pie looks scrumptious!

  4. Feta cheese is a fantastic idea! This is my I could’ve had a V-8 moment. I’ve made a lot of quiches in my lifetime that were pretty tasty. But yours looks like the best ever! ….P.s. Thanks to you and Bill I’m also now hankering for tuna casserole!

  5. Claudia Lamascolo says:

    love the addition of roasted peppers!

  6. Your husband and I have something in common–not a huge fish fan. I grew up eating tuna melts and fish sticks during lent. Now I will eat eggs, or beans. Sadly, not even tuna entices me 🙁 This quiches looks fabulous!

  7. I wish my husband liked quiche more. He will have one slice and then be done leaving me with all of the remaining slices. Yours is beautiful.

  8. This is certainly a case of the ingredients being so much greater than the sum of their parts, Liz. Gorgeous quiche! How could Bill resist?

  9. I can’t believe I’m just discovering the flavor behind sun dried tomatoes the past few months! I can’t wait to try this.

  10. I could eat quiche every single day! This one is beautiful!

  11. I really like all kind of quiche! This one with spinach looks perfect for aperitivo.
    Have a nice Sunday

  12. Quiche is always a favorite in our house. Love the colors and flavors here.

  13. Ha ha! I love your stories of what Bill won’t eat. I guess we all have favourites from our childhood, but even though I grew up eating tuna with Campbell’s soup, I can think of many things I’d rather have!

  14. Gorgeous Quiche! Sounds delicious!

  15. I understand what you are saying about our husbands’ (limited) love of fish and/or meatless recipes! At least your Bill included salmon in his original list; I haven’t gotten that far with my Bill. It almost has to be forced down; but once he tries it, it’s OK! LOL! Love the delicious flavors in your quiche Liz, especially the tangy sundries tomatoes! Beautiful too!

  16. Aw, yes this very quiche over tune casserole ANY DAY! Looks so good and great added flavors.

  17. Such a pretty dish, Liz! Love those colours! xoxo

  18. Quiche is one of my favorite brunch dishes. I plan it so I have lunch for the next week!!!! This is gorgeous! Love the flavors you put together.

  19. Trust you to be able to make quiche look pretty! I love sun-dried tomatoes.

  20. What a gorgeous quiche, I’m thinking this needs to be on the menu for Easter brunch!

  21. This quiche sounds delicious! Sundried tomatoes are one of my favorites! Sounds like a wonderful combination of flavors.

  22. A classic combo! Beautiful Liz!

  23. My husband loves quiche too. Real men do eat quiche. 🙂

  24. My mom made that same tuna casserole when I was growing up. I think that I would choose this quiche every time over that tuna casserole. It sounds delicious!

  25. There is nothing better than Sun-dried Tomatoes and roasted bell peppers! This looks stunning!

  26. What a gorgeous quiche Liz ! I like all the ingredients!

  27. I have never thought to use sun dried tomatoes in quiche before, but this looks so delicious!

  28. Now that is what I call a pie crust, such a lovely colour to it! I love quiche and this combination of flavours sound wonderful.

  29. This quiche looks lovely – I am sure that Bill wouldn’t mind skipping the tuna casserole at all for this.

  30. I absolutely love the colors in this quiche! So beautiful!

  31. I think I just found my favorite meatless meal!

  32. Fantastic looking quiche with delicious ingredients! We’ll try it with some fresh dill instead of the Italian seasoning:) Thank you so much for the yummy recipe Liz!
    Lots of hugs,
    Panos and Mirella
