When it comes to eating healthfully, you’re usually better off avoiding heavily processed substitutes or fat- or sugar-free versions of foods. At the same time, it’s important to limit saturated fat and refined sugar in your diet. This spinach quiche recipe is a great example of reducing high-fat ingredients (such as heavy cream) without compromising flavor or texture. Evaporated milk is processed to remove some of the water, so it has a thick consistency that’s more like heavy cream than milk, yet it has a fraction of the calories.
Makes 6 to 8 servings
1 can (12 ounces) evaporated fat-free milk
3 large eggs
1/3 cup ricotta cheese
¼ cup grated parmesan or romano cheese
Salt and pepper
1 box (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 frozen deep-dish pie shell
