Smoked Salmon & Spinach Quiche

Sunday, October 11, 2009

I've been reading lots of books and magazine articles lately talking about "Super Foods". As I struggle with my weight and my health, I have been trying to incorporate as many of these foods in my diet as possible.

Today, I found a way to include two super foods (spinach and wild salmon) into a single, easy dish: Quiche!


1 frozen pie crust, baked
1 bag fresh baby spinach (Asparagus would be a great substitute)
1-2 cups smoked salmon, depending on taste
4 eggs
1 cup cream or milk
1/2 block cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt, pepper and dill to taste (fresh dill would be awesome!)

Bake your pie crust and let cool.

Saute the spinach in a tablespoon of butter or canola oil until wilted. Let drain in colander to remove liquid and cool.

Mix eggs, cream or milk, salt, pepper and dill until well combined.

Layer into pie crust:

Smoked Salmon

Cream Cheese, broken into small pieces and scattered

Egg Mixture. Make sure to work it all the way to the bottom

Top with Cheddar Cheese

Place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees about 25-30 minutes, until well set.

Let cool, slice and serve. A nutritional powerhouse that tastes good!
