Notes:

  • If you want a gluten-free quiche, use Gluten-free Shortcrust Pastry sheets or go crust-less!
  • For a crust-less version, opt out of the pastry. Directly place the vegetable and cheese filling in the greased tin, pour the egg and milk mixture over it. Bake for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. You have yourself a crust-less spinach quiche.
