    This quiche is definitely going to be back on the plates soon. Thank you for sharing.  -  03 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Fantastic quick and easy dish, delicious cold too. I've put slices of potato as a base layer and a sprinkle of feta on top. For meat lovers chorizo works very well in the mix, add it to the pan with the veg  -  01 Oct 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Delicioso! Thank you for the recipe! I'm actually just learning to cook so it definitely doesn't look as it suppose to be, but my friends loved it and approved my cooking I found that it's very important to dry spinach and vegies very well - unfrozen spinach and simmered veggies had a lot of water and I didn't dried enough, but quiche was still very delicious. I'm gonna nail it!  -  27 Jun 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
