Carrot & Spinach Quiche

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 
1 onion, diced
  • 
2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ pound spinach,
  • 
1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 
6 eggs
  • 
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 
1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 
1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 
2 (9 inch) pie crusts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the onion until tender. Mix in the garlic, spinach, and carrots, and cook until the spinach liquid has evaporated. Remove skillet from heat, and mix in cheese and eggs. Season with red pepper, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Pour 1/2 the mixture into each pie shell. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a quiche comes out clean.
