Tarty Quiche.

Cheese and Spinach Tortilla Tart Recipe
This is my take on a lightened quiche recipe, it was a something I invented in my head last night whilst I was in bed (obviously dreaming of cheese and eggs).

this afternoon my plan went in to action and i rustled up a tortilla based quiche and it worked really well. super stoked. the tortilla wrap base ended up crispy and very pastry like, and the filling was pretty great too. (excuse me whilst i blow my own trumpet)

Ingredients
  • 1 tortilla wrap
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup milk (semi or skimmed)
  • half a red onion finely chopped
  • handful of spinach chopped
  • cheese grated for topping.
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • pinch of grated nutmeg
  • salt and pepper to season.
Directions
  1. Heat a tortilla wrap in the microwave for 20 seconds to soften. this makes it more pliable for shaping.
  2. Press into flan tin or cake tin.
  3. In a bowl, combine all other ingredients
  4. Pour egg mixture into tortilla base and top with some grated cheddar.
  5. Bake in oven for 30-40 minutes until golden brown.
    So nice out today, the sun is shining and it feels as if spring may have sprung.  Me and bobbin walked to the post office to send off some eBay bits and sunny it maybe but the temperatures are arctic, back in doors to hibernate or a few more weeks i think.
