    I think I’ll go carnivore-style – some crumbled bacon, cubed Italian sausage, yummmmmmm!

    I just tried it..it was good but I would only blend for like 10 seconds to keep it less pureed. Also, the spinach made it watery, so i would steam spinach and then drain water before adding it, or keep it fresh and throw a couple tablespoons of flour to absorb it, or maybe less milk? GREAT taste though! Will definitely make again!

    Lindsay Nixon has a fabulous "nom-let" recipe in her cookbook Happy Herbivore using Silken tofu and other ingredients to get that egg flavor – I think you could use that as a base since it is baked, too.

    We recently bought the Blendtec Classic570. I tried to make the quiche with it tonight. Didn’t turn out so well. Thought I was supposed to pulse it at least once for 10 seconds. That TOTALLY pureed it! Tried cooking it anyway, spinach and all. Tastes okay flavor-wise; texture-wise, not so much. I can’t add flour as someone suggested, since I’m gluten free. Maybe I should have used less milk. Anyway, just so you know, your mileage may vary on this recipe, depending on the actual blender you use.
