Crustless Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche


I found this recipe at http://www.sparkrecipes.com and it sounded so good I just had to try it.


1 medium onion, diced
6 oz fresh baby spinach
2 large eggs
1/2 cup egg beaters (I didn't have any so added 3 more eggs.  Why 3?  Because there were 5 in the carton . . . LOL)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch cayenne pepper
1-1/3 cups non fat milk
1/2 cup feta cheese

Preheat oven to 400F.
Lightly great a 10 inch quiche/tart pan  or pie plate.
In a medium frying pan, cook diced onion with a bit of vegetable oil or cooking spray over medium-high heat until translucent and tender.  Add in fresh spinach and cook until just wilted.  Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, flour and baking powder.  Whisk in milk, then stir in spinach-onion mixture.
Pour quiche base into prepared pan.  Top with feta cheese.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until centre is set and outside edge is golden brown.
Let it set for 5 minutes, then slice and serve.
