This healthy mediterranean quiche is going to be your new favorite quiche. It’s made with shredded potatoes in place of traditional pie crust which makes prep time a snap.
The potatoes are easily shredded using a hand grater or food processor then pressed into a pie plate. They are baked in the oven until they become brown and crispy.
This quiche is not only delicious, it’s a nutritious and filling choice for breakfast, lunch, brunch and even dinner with a salad on the side.

fresh eggs – Any type of eggs will work in this recipe. If you are able to buy fresh eggs that are pasture raised go for it. They taste much better and have more health benefits than spermarket eggs. If that is not an option, choose eggs that are labeled cage free or free range. While these terms don’t necessarily mean the hens were pasutre raised, it’s a better choice.
russet or yukon gold potatoes – Are high in starch and perfect for making hash browns. I like to use yukon gold potatoes when I make a potato crust for a more buttery flavor.
yellow or red onion
fresh chopped baby spinach – For the freshest flavor I like to use fresh spinach. You can also use frozed chopped spinach, see the tips below for instructions.
sun dried tomaotes that are NOT packed in oil.
kalamata olives The briney flavor brings all of the flavors in the quiche together.
crumbled feta cheese
fresh or dried oregano
