    This lighter spinach quiche doesn't taste 'light' in the slightest! VEry delicious and couldn't be easier. I might try adding chopped ham sometime to make it a heartier quiche, which would still make it healthier and lower in fat than most.

    I made my own pastry and used fresh spinach as I didn't have frozen, I also used reduced fat creme fraiche Might try adding a bit of cheese next time. Delicious and filling thanks for the recipe!  -  13 Jun 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
