In addition to St. Patrick’s Day, we are also celebrating National Nutrition Month in March.  Here is a quick and easy “green” meal that you can enjoy for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner!

Here is what you need

  • 1 tsp Butter
  • 7 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup chopped red pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C).

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; add peppers and sauté until soft.  Add spinach and sauté for 3 to 4 min or until wilted.

Spread spinach in a 9-inch (23 cm) ceramic or glass quiche dish or pie plate. Sprinkle with Feta cheese.

In a bowl, whisk eggs until blended; whisk in milk and pepper until frothy. Pour over the spinach mixture. Using a spoon, stir gently, just enough to make sure the egg mixture covers most of the spinach mixture.

Bake for 35 to 40 min or until knife inserted into centre comes out clean. Let stand for 5 min before serving.
