I prefer crustless quiches in general, but the recipe I usually use ("zucchinni pie") does not call for spinach, and I had a ton of fresh spinach (and mushrooms, incidentally) from the farmer's market, so I decided to try a spinach quiche recipe. I couldn't find any crustless ones, so I went ahead and made the "Miracle Baking Powder Pie Crust," which came out fine, like any other ordinary pie crust. I used my microwave steamer at 2 minutes. It took 3 times filling it up to steam all the 10 oz of spinach, since fresh spinach has such fluffy volume to it, but it came out fine. Except then the recipe says to dry it out with paper towels. I am not rich so I used 6 paper towels and then gave up and dumped the still pretty wet spinach in the mixture. Not completely drying didn't seem to make a difference though, and I didn't notice a "strange" taste due to the yogurt. I did consider using sour cream instead though, since I have been stocking my fridge with it constantly ever since I discovered from the "BREAKSTONE'S Classic Sour Cream-Banana Bread" recipe that it makes any baked good taste deliciously moist! Oh I also added in garlic to the bottom of the dish with the mushrooms and red onion (because I have no scallions), because I LOVE garlic and think it makes a delicious addition to tons of dishes that don't call for it, especially eggs!
