This delicious dairy-free spinach quiche is flavorful and creamy without any cheese, milk or meat. The best part? It can be served for breakfast, brunch or dinner.
Our family and friends were so gracious to set up a meal train for us when Olivia arrived. One of my favorite meals that we received was a spinach quiche and it quickly made me realize that quiche is the ultimate food to bring to new parents for a variety of reasons. 1) You can eat it with one hand. 2) It works for breakfast, lunch or dinner and 3) It can be eaten cold, straight from the fridge or reheated!
Trust me, when you’re sleep deprived, hungry and holding a screaming baby all of these things are helpful.
I already have a crustless quiche recipe, but decided to make this spinach quiche with a crust to keep it traditional. The crust also helps to make the quiche a bit more filling.
Most quiches are loaded with dairy to add additional flavor and creaminess, but you don’t need it! This quiche is packed with flavor and doesn’t have cheese OR milk. Many new mamas have to go dairy-free if their baby has a milk protein intolerance or allergy so I wanted to create a quiche that would work for these moms! Instead of cow’s milk, we’re using oat milk to make this quiche creamy without the dairy.
Let’s jump into the recipe!
We’re using frozen spinach for this quiche recipe and there are a couple extra steps to prepare the spinach. If you remember to take it out the night before, place the frozen chopped spinach in the refrigerator to thaw. If you forget, don’t stress! Place the frozen spinach in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes or until the spinach is thawed.
After your spinach is thawed, you want to get the spinach as dry as possible. Wrap the spinach in paper towels or clean kitchen towels and squeeze out all of the excess moisture. I like letting the spinach sit wrapped in paper towels while I prep the rest of the ingredients to make sure every last drop is absorbed by the paper towels.
If you want to use this as a meal prep recipe or a meal train recipe, fully cook the quiche and then let it cool completely in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to five days in the refrigerator when kept in an airtight container. Like I said earlier, you can eat it cold, right out of the fridge or reheat it. My personal preference is to reheat it in the toaster oven.
