How to make this quiche
Begin by preheating the oven to 400F.
After that, fit the pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish. Next, whisk eggs, half and half, salt, pepper, cheese, and garlic together in a bowl.
Then mince the shallot and slice the mushrooms into bite-size pieces.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil, minced shallot, mushrooms, and 1 tablespoon of mushroom powder. Sauté for 5 minutes, mixing constantly. Then add the spinach. Mix everything together and add 1/2 tablespoon of mixed mushroom powder. Sauté until the spinach is wilted, about 5 minutes.
After that, add the mushroom and spinach combo to the pie crust. Then pour the egg mixture on top. Gently mix everything together and bake for 35-40 minuets. Put a toothpick in the center, and if it comes out clean then the quiche is done.
