Spinach raisin and pine nut quiche recipe

Happy Monday, dear readers! I hope everybody had a wonderful weekend. I was wondering earlier if it was a good idea to post a recipe today since some of you may still feel stuffed after the Thanksgiving feast. In the end I could not resist posting this savoury pie.

Spinach raisin and pine nut quiche recipe

There are so many good things about this dish. Let's start with the fact that raisins, pine nuts and spinach are a great source of energy (Popeye has already taught us that) and they are healthy too! Then, there's the contrast of flavors sweet and salty which makes it all the more pleasurable to eat. Finally, it is perfect for every occasion. You can have it for lunch or dinner. You can also combine it with other dishes fo a dinner party.
