Are you tired of eating your greens in a salad? Then try this Green Quiche, it's dairy-free and wholly vegetarian.

  1. Start by lining up the bottom of quiche pans with parchment paper and greasing the sides.
  2. Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface, transfer it to the pan, and drape it along the sides.
  3. Be sure to trim the excess dough and poke holes in the bottom. Place it in a fridge and allow it to rest for about 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 360ºF, insert pastry and allow it to bake for about 10 minutes.
  5. While the pastry is baking, combine eggs, chopped greens, milk, and cream in a mixing bowl. Have to stir vigorously to bruise the greens into a reduced volume. Fold in the walnuts, and put it into the parbaked crust.
  6. Now, lower the oven temperature to 320ºF and bake for another 35-40 minutes until the filling becomes set.
  7. Lastly, unmold this dish, and serve with a lightly dressed green salad. Enjoy!
