Mediterranean Mini Quiches

Mini quiches are on a plate, they are golden brown and delicious.

Mediterranean Mini Quiches.

I am all about delicious food that packs a nutritional punch. When it comes to making breakfast or snacks for the girls, I always make sure I add “secret ingredients” that not only heighten the flavour but, increase the nutrition. Mimi tends to be a bit pickier and it is a bit harder to get protein into her. Whenever I can find a way to incorporate Sabra hummus into a recipe, I do. She not only loves the taste, it increases the protein, fiber and other nutrients in any recipe.

Chop It Up.

A great way for the girls to eat their veggies is when they are mixed into something. I decided to make mini quiches for those busy mornings or when they wanted a snack. I chop up the veggies really well so that they aren’t too chunky. They prefer it finely chopped! To give it a Mediterranean flair, I made this recipe with Gruyère cheese, goat cheese, spinach and of course–Sabra hummus.

Chopped garlic, mushrooms, onions, and spinach are on chopping block.
Yes, hummus! 

It provides you with protein and a number of essential vitamin and minerals and mostly heart-healthy unsaturated fat. It can also replace other spreads or sauces and makes it a healthier option all around. I chose Sabra’s Roasted Pine Nut hummus for its flavour and the pine nuts for texture.

The Things You Will Need:
  • 2 TBSP of Sabra Roasted Pine Nut Hummus
  • 2 TBSP of margarine or butter
  • 1/4 cup of Half & Half
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 pastry cups
  • 1/4 cup of baby spinach
  • 1/4 of shredded Gruyère cheese
  • 1/4 of goat cheese
  • 4 mushrooms
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Salt, Pepper & Parsley to taste.

Onion, garlic, and mushrooms being sauteed with butter in a pan.

Spinach added to sauteed mushrooms, onion, garlic, and butter.

Make Your Veggies!

Pre-heat oven to 350. Add the margarine or butter to a pan on medium heat and once melted, add the onions and garlic. Let them sweat out before you add the spinach. Once you add the spinach, let it wilt and remove it from the heat. Add parsley, salt, and pepper to taste!

Cream being added to eggs with Sabra hummus on the side.

Make the Egg Mix.

If you think incorporating hummus into egg is hard, it totally isn’t! Break 3 eggs, add to heaping spoons of Sabra hummus and 1/4 of the half & half. Whisk with a fork, it mixes perfectly when whisked and gives it consistency, flavour, and leaves behind the pine nuts! It’s as simple as that!

Prepare the Cups!

You need a cookie sheet. Place the pastry cups into two rows. Scoop in the veggie mix with a spoon and fill the cups up about a quarter full. You need to leave room for cheese and the egg mix. Try to distribute it evenly, so that every cup has spinach.

Mini pie shells are then filled with feta and gruyere cheese and being filled with egg mixture.

Egg mixture is added to cheese and vegetable mixture.

Top and Pour.

The next part is simple. All you need to do is top the veggie mix with shredded Gruyère cheese and cubed goat cheese. Transfer your egg mixture into a measuring cup so that it’s easier to pour. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the cup. Stop when it is leveled and egg mix has completely covered the veggie mix. Place in oven for 25 minutes or until set and golden brown.

Enjoy!

Remove from the oven and let the mini quiches completely cool. Once they are cooled, all you have to do is enjoy. They are perfect for mornings and for after school snacks. I know the girls are loving them and Gabby loves to make them herself. They are that simple! It’s creamy, cheesy, flavourful and delicious!

Hummus Isn’t Just for Dipping!

I love what I love in the kitchen but, with that said I love to experiment. You can do so much with hummus like making pasta creamier, your own salad dressings, using it in place of mayonnaise or putting it in your favorite recipes. You can even make dessert with hummus, Sabra has an amazing recipe up on their website for chocolate truffles that look absolutely divine. Check out these kid-friendly hummus snacks too!

Do you use hummus for something other than dipping?

Let me know, til then–cheers m’deres!
