Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 olive oil whole wheat pie crust
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 3.5 ounces (100g) baby spinach
  • ½ teaspoon dry thyme or herbes de Provence
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 5.3 ounces (150g) feta cheese, crumbled or diced
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup (120 ml) milk or cream
  • ¼ cup (60g) parmesan cheese, grated (optional)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the olive oil whole wheat pie crust and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C) and grease a 9-inch (23 cm) pie dish or tart pan with oil. Set aside.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan. Once hot, add onions and sauté for a few minutes until soft and tender, stirring often. Add diced bell pepper and sauté a few more minutes, stirring from time to time. Sprinkle some dry thyme or herbes de Provence, season with salt and pepper, and give a good stir. Finally add spinach and cook until wilted. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs with milk or cream, and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over the olive oil whole wheat pie crust, then add the vegetables, crumbled or diced feta cheese, and pour the egg mixture on top.
  6. Bake for about 25 minutes or until the filling is set and the crust slightly golden and looks crispy.
