Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 5 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. ice-cold water
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and diced
  • 6 cups chopped fresh spinach, stems removed
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup low-fat milk
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup shredded Swiss cheese

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Get out a 9" pie plate and set aside.
  • Place flour in a medium mixing bowl. Measure oil and water into a small bowl, mix well, and pour into flour. Stir until a dough comes together, then gather dough into a ball and place between two pieces of waxed paper. Roll dough out into a large round pie crust, slightly bigger than the pie plate. Carefully transfer the pie crust to the pan; press in and patch as necessary. Set aside.
  • Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté 8 minutes. Add spinach and cook until spinach is wilted, about 5 minutes. Drain well and set aside.
  • Break eggs in a large mixing bowl and whisk well. Add milk, mayonnaise, remaining 2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour, and pepper. Blend well. Add cheese along with contents of sauté pan and stir to combine.
  • Pour filling into prepared crust. Place pan on middle rack in oven and bake 45–50 minutes until set.
  • Remove from oven, place on wire rack, and cool slightly, about 15 minutes. Serve warm or cool.
