Ingredients

  • 1 whole onion finely chopped
  • 10 oz. spinach fresh or thawed and drained and chopped
  • cups cheddar cheese grated
  • cups Mozzarella cheese grated
  • 5 eggs beaten
  • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp. Coconut oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie or quiche pan or dish.
  • If the spinach was frozen, drain a bit to remove some excess water. Chop the spinach and set aside.
  • In a frying pan, heat two tablespoon of oil over a medium heat. Then add the onions and cook until soft and clear. Add the chopped spinach, stirring occasionally until soft. Cook until all the excess moisture has evaporated.
  • In another bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the salt and pepper to taste, cheese and  spinach mixture. Stir and then pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake uncovered for 35minutes. Remove from oven and allow to set for 10 minutes before serving.

Notes

This spinach variety takes a little extra time to cook, compared to the other types of spinach which are usually softer. This variety is also a bit crunchy with a slightly bitter taste. So the extra cooking is necessary to reduce the bitterness and make it softer. You may have to add a some drops of water is the bhaji is drying a bit. Once the bhaji is cooked, it will have pleasant taste and the cooked onion would have added a bit of sweetness to it.
If you are using a glass pie dish, decrease the oven temperature by 25 degrees F once you start baking your quiche.
