Spinach and Goats Cheese Quiche

Hello hungry peoples,

I love a good quiche and since my husband is so anti-egg I have to work on my quiche recipes under cover of darkness…..or you know…when no-one else is around/hungry. Spinach and goats cheese quiche is my all time favourite quiche flavour. I always have a jar of Meredith’s Goats Cheese in my fridge for cheese emergencies. The oil preserves the cheese but is also handy for dressing salads and frying things. I like to encase my quiche in a sour cream pastry. I know it sounds like a weird concept but it makes the most golden and crispiest pastry case ever with the bonus of being super easy to make. It’s addition makes this one amazing meal. Let’s get into it!
