If you are a little like me you are SOLD on any recipe that is quick, easy and use fresh ingredients! After a long day at work (or after an even longerrrrr week at work!) I want to put something on the table that is delicious but also healthy.
This spinach and feta quiche is easy to prepare and full of delicious flavour! You will love the combination of sweet sautéed onions, fresh spinach, salty feta and a nice dash of mozzarella cheese to add some creaminess.
Why we need to eat more Spinach!
It is a great source of Iron.
Spinach contains an antioxidant known as alpha-lipoic acid, which has been shown to lower glucose levels, increase insulin sensitivity, and prevent oxidative, stress-induced changes in patients with diabetes.
It is high in potassium and therefore recommended to people that struggles with high blood pressure.
It is high in water and fibre and contributes to a healthy digestive system.
It contains high amounts of Vitamin A which promotes skin and hair health.
