Love the quiches because are wonderful  at any time, winter or summer. They are fast and when they are at  oven  you can while make  a dessert, setting the table, and other things that are make always in a house.

This zucchini and spinach quiche I especially loved by the dough that is whole flour, is a very light mass.

Quiche de harina integral con calabacines y espinacas

Lo que me encanta de este quiche es que se puede hacer casi en cualquier época, porque zapallitos (calabacines) hay practicamente todo el año y tambien espinacas.
Se hace rápido y mientras está en el horno se pone la mesa, se hace algún postre y esas cosas que nunca falta en una casa.
Normalmente sirvo los quiches con ensaladas, incluso para la noche son muy buenos porque no te demoras nada.
Esta receta está adaptada de una de Clara Majlis que es una chef que se especializa en reetas de bajo índice glicémico .

La masa es con harina integral . Pero tambien se puede mezclar  una taza de harina blanca y una de integral.


2 tazas de harina integral
(o 1 de integral y una de harina blanca)
70 grs. de mantequilla o margarina
1/2 taza de agua tibia
1 cucharadita de sal


500 grs. de hojas de espinacas
1 cucharad de cebolla picada fina
2 o 3 zapallitos italianos cocidos y trozados
3 huevos
3/4 taza de ricotta
3 cucharadas de queso rallado
1/2 cucharada de aceite
sal y pimienta


En un bowl mezclar la harina con la margarina o mantequilla derretida y la sal, agregar de a poco el agua tibia (en cucharadas)  formando una masa, si se necesita agregar un poco harina.
La masa no se debe pegar en las manos.
Estirar y forrar con esta masa un molde de quiche o tarta de 26 c.
Precalentar el horno a 180°c y cocinar durante 10 minutos, retirar y reservar.


Lavar las epinacas y cortar en tiras, llevar al microondas por unos 5 mintos.
Una vez listas colar y aplastar con un tenedor.
Aparte cocine los zapallitos (con la cáscara) cortados en pedazos.
Cocinar hasta que estén blandos.
Luego colarlos y molerlos un poco.

En un sartén sofreir la cebolla picada, a continuación mezclar con las espinacas picadas y los zapallitos en trozos.
Agregar los huevos , la ricotta 2 cucharadas de queso rallado y aliños.
mezclar bien.
Una vez que está bien  mezclado vaciar sobre la masa ya precocinada del quiche.
Espolvorear el queso rallado que queda.
llevar a horno a 200° y cocinar por unos 40 minutos.
Servir caliente o tibio, servir en ensaladas.
