With pastry case out of oven and baking beans out, arrange spinach and spring onion over base.

Lightly beat eggs, cream and seasoning. Crumble goats cheese and add to grated parmesan, gently mix together with eggs and cream. Pour into pastry case. Lightly tap edge of quiche tin to let out any trapped air between ingredients and for it to level nicely and bake for 30-35 mins until golden. Turn half way through cooking.

Serve with a nice crisp salad or a herb mayo or a crunchy homemade Coleslaw.

Little tips:

Use 2 teaspoons dried mixed herbs to the pastry mix to give another flavour dimension

Make pastry in Magimix food processor as it is a much quicker job

Use a Silverwood quiche tin, pastry is cooked to perfection.

To make this delicious dish we used the following items:

 

Cheese, Onion and Spinach Quiche

Silverwood Quiche Tin

Made in the Birmingham since 1966, Silverwood bakeware is light, but incredibly resilient. Able to withstand high heats, the bakeware conducts the heat quickly to ensure crisp, even baking. As a result we tend to suggest that you reduce cooking time by as much as 10% compared to other brands! The loose bottom makes removing the quiche easy, while the sharp edges help cut the left over pastry cleanly. Although not dishwasher safe, Silverwood products should soak for 2 minutes and clean easily by hand. A little tip for you, let grease and oil season the dish and it will create a natural non-stick coating. Silverwood bakeware quite literally improves with use.

Magimix 3200
There is a good reason why Magimix food processors are the best sellers on the market. Compact and powerful, the Magimix food processor will mix, grate, slice, chop, whisk, knead and - thanks to its BlenderMix attachment - liquidise your ingredients.
The commercial grade induction motor maintains a constant speed at all times, automatically adjusting the power to provide the right speed whatever the job. So whether you are shredding carrots or blending a milkshake, it will operate at the same speed every time.
The Compact range comes with 3 bowls made of tough Lexan plastic (we can stand on a bowl without causing any damage!) that is crystal clear and doesn’t leach into food. The bowls fit within each other giving you the option of processing small quantities for one-person cooking as well as the extra large work bowl. Precise enough to chop one clove or garlic or two sprigs of parsley, the Magimix is perfect for vinaigrettes, sauces, appetisers, baby foods or a one egg mayonnaise. Easy to assemble, easy to clean, quiet and sturdy, the Magimix food processor will last well beyond its 12 year motor and 3 year parts guarantees. A true kitchen work-horse that won’t disappoint.
