Lola’s Kitchen is a feature on Lola’s Reviews where I talk about all things related to food, cooking and baking. These posts can be recipe posts or more discussion type posts about food. I love cooking and spend some time in the kitchen almost every day, so I wanted to give it a place on my blog as well. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Design.
This is another original Lola recipe. I wanted to make quiche and I wnated to eat spinach, throw in some new masal spices I recently got and you get this quiche. It is one of the few recipes withotu red bell pepper, want to know why? I hand’t bought enough red bell pepper to add it to this dish as well. So I looked into my pantry and saw some lentils and added those instead. I get a tigne of sadness every time I think about this quiche as I made it the first time the day Pita had died. But it is a wonderfull quiche, filled with curry flavour and veggies. And I have a soft spot for quiches as I love dough in general.
- (Frozen) Spinach – 2 cups
- Lentils – 2 cups
- Onion – 1
- Quiche dough – 6 pieces or enough to cover your bowl
- Water – 125 ml/ 1/2 cup
- Greek Yoghurt – 125 ml/ 1/2 cup
- Egg – 3
- Low Salt Vegetable Bouillon Cube – 1
- Masala – 3 teasoons
- Curry powder – 2 teaspoons
- Turmeric – 1 teaspoon
- Olive Oil
Make sure to use Masala and not garam masala as they taste very differently. The masala I use is bright yellow and tastes more like curry, while garam masala is much brown. I usually use frozen quiche dough, but any other quiche dough or homemade quiche dough works as well. I am just lazy and I haven’t foudn a good quiche dough recipe yet. This recipe feeds about 3-4 people.
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius/ 356 fahrenheit. Remove the quiche dough from the freezer and put them on the counter to thaw.
- Slice and dice the onion.
- Then heat the oil and bake the onion until the onion is translucent.
- Now add the spinach and the water and stir well.
- Once the spinach is mostly defrosted add the lentils, followed by the spices. Stir well and let cook for a little while.
- In the meantime prepare the bakign dish and lightly grease it. Then put the quiche dough inside, make sure to cover the whole surface.
- In a mixing bowl combine the greek yoghurt and eggs and stir well.
- Now it’s time to assemble the quiche. Pour the spinach mixture in the dish. Then pour the gg mixture on top and stir a bit.
- Put in the oven for 20-30 minutes. Then get the quiche out, let it cool down for a bit and enjoy!

- Vary with veggies. While I use spinach and lentils, you can basically add in whatever veggies you have.
- Normal vegetable quiche. Leave out the masala, turmeric and curry spices and you have a more neutral flavoured quiche. Or add in some soy sauce or ketjap for flavour.
