Gradually introduce different vegetables

Although spinach is not your most obvious option to serve kids, quiche is a good place to introduce children to spinach. Mixed with the rest of the quiche ingredients the flavour of the spinach blend in and is very mild. In fact, Quiche is a very good place to introduce so many other vegetables to children. Start the introduction with the plain Quiche first (recipe on this link), then start introducing different flavours (vegetables, herbs, cheeses….etc)

This Spinach Quiche is one of my favourite things to have anytime. I especially love this for brunches, and especially when having a brunch in our garden for our friends and family… I always have the kids help me make this, they love making it and as they do they usually end up eating it too :))

You can add some grilled chicken pieces to this quiche for a heartier meal and because some children will like it better this way.


1 recipe savoury shortcrust pastry (recipe on this link)
4 beaten eggs
¼ cup sour cream
¼ cup milk
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
1 medium onion, finely chopped

1-2 tbsp DS Premium Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

500g fresh baby spinach leaves, washed and roughly chopped

Salt & Black pepper to taste

Start by making the shortcrust following the recipe on this link.

Roll & Bake the pastry also as instructed by the recipe.

In a large skillet, sauté the chopped onion in olive oil until translucent. Add the chopped baby spinach leaves and sauté for 3 minutes. Once done, set aside until ready to use.

In a bowl, stir together the eggs, sour cream, milk, nutmeg and seasoning. Add the onion and spinach mixture to the egg mixture and mix then pour the mixture in the hot, baked shell. Bake in 325°F/280°C oven for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the centre comes out clean.

Leave to cool in the pie plate before transferring to the serving plate.

Serve warm or cold.
