Spinach and Ricotta Quiche

  
I love to make quiches in the summer and I realized that today was the last day of August. And I wasn’t ready to let go of the summer so I decided to bake a quiche. I wanted to make something different than the usual quiche, using a different type of cheese and also vegetables. Ricotta is light in texture and also the taste is not overwhelming. I mixed it with a couple of sauteed vegetables and topped with a sprinkle of parmesan. The quiche is crustless because I like to keep this dish light so I can enjoy dessert afterwards.

  • 3 cups of frozen spinach leaves rinsed 
  • 1 onion minced 
  • 3 cups of ricotta
  • 4 eggs 
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Thyme
  • 1 tbsp of honey 
  • 3 mushrooms thinly sliced 
  • 1 tbsp of parmesan 

Heat up the oven on 350. 

Start by sautéing lightly the onion. Once it’s ready, remove from the pan and sautee the spinach for 2-3 minutes. In a large bowl, mix the onions and and the spinach. Add the ricotta, the beaten eggs, salt, pepper, thyme and honey. Mix very well. Grease a large round pan and pour the mixture. Top with the sliced mushroom and sprinkle the parmesan. Bake for 45minites. 

Chicken Stuffed with Sautéed Spinach

This chicken dish looks very fancy and sophisticated but I could make it with my eyes closed. It’s very simple to make and extremely tasty. I stuffed the chicken with sautéed spinach, but mushrooms is also a great option.

  • Extra thin chicken cutlets
  • One pound of frozen spinach
  • 2 finely minced garlic cloves
  • Salt pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1 cup of breadcrumbs breadcrumbs
  • Rosemary
  • cooking spray
  • 2 eggs beaten

Heat up oil in a skillet. Add the garlic and the spinach. Cook for about 5-6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the fire. Once the mixture is cold, lay flat the chicken cutlets.
Lightly grease a large pan. Turn oven on 350. Put a little bit of the mixture of the top of the cutlet and roll very tight. Turn to coat in the beaten eggs and then in the breadcrumbs, pressing to adhere. Spray some cooking spray over the chicken and sprinkle with rosemary. Bake for 30min.
