Here’s a quiche recipe, made from scratch, that surprisingly takes less than 45 minutes to make.

I made this the other night when I made the Irish Soda Bread. It’s in the same issue of Gourmet Magazine from March, 1994. And I served them both together. (Note: This recipe serves just 2, so I doubled it and made two quiches to serve 4)

Ingredients/Shopping List:

All-purpose flour (1/3 cup)

Unsalted butter (3 tbsp., cold)

Vegetable shortening (1 tbsp., cold)

Ice water (1 1/2 tbsp, plus more if necessary)

Red bell pepper (1/3 cup sliced)

Olive oil (1 tbsp.)

Fresh spinach leaves, washed and trimmed (2 cups packed, or about 5 ounces)

Large eggs (2)

Heavy cream or milk (1/3 cup)

Feta cheese, crumbled (1/3 cup)

What I did:

I followed the recipe here.
