Savory and satisfying, this fresh spinach quiche is a wonderful spring dish loaded with greens, legumes, and other healthy ingredients. Enjoy it as the recipe dictates or throw in some broccoli, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, or your favorite herbs. The nutritional yeast gives this quiche a slightly cheesy undertone, but if you'd like more of a kick, mix in some red chili flakes or drizzle Sriracha upon serving.
