This is a healthier take on Spanakopita. It's a lot simpler, too! Spanakopita requires cooking, cutting, spreading, and folding. This quiche requires mixing and baking. That's it. Can't get much simpler.
I wanted to make a carb-friendly version of Spanakopita, so I needed to figure out a way to make it hold its shape without using a crust or traditional phyllo dough. I added more eggs to help bind the ingredients together, and it worked like a charm. I thought it tasted exactly like the filling of one of my favorite Greek appetizers. I had this for dinner one night, but it was also great the next morning for breakfast. Enjoy!
