Spinach and Ricotta Quiche
Easy and tasty way to get your load of green with this quiche that can also be made the day before. I tried this recipe when one of our farmer at the Copley Market gave us two fresh bags of spinach. Did you know that spinach is another superfood. It is low in calorie, it supports skin, hair and bone health and is a good source of iron, magnesium and calcium just to mention a few benefits.
