Participating in Meatless Monday is easy with this delicious recipe for Mushroom Spinach Quiche.

I first posted about this quiche exactly 3 years ago and I am sad to say that was the last time I made this mushroom and spinach quiche.

Why? I have no idea!! It was delicious!

My first memory of quiche was from a recipe my mama used to make many moons ago, when I was a teenager. The quiche had sausage and onions in it, along with the usual cheese and egg custard mixture. It was delicious and I got the recipe from her some time later to make for David and myself.

I’m not sure why, but the last time I made that sausage and onion quiche for David and myself, it gave us bother terrible indigestion. Needless to say, David was somewhat skeptical when I said I was making this mushroom spinach quiche. But once he tried it, he gave me a high-five! Neither one of us had indigestion and he’s been awaiting the next quiche recipe.

This easy to prepare mushroom spinach quiche is made with the perfect combination  mushrooms, spinach, shallots and Gruyère cheese.

Here’s how I made it:
