I was fortunate enough to be able to volunteer again this year for the Manitoba Dairy Farmers ‘Cooking Quest’. Link can be found here, for more information 🙂 The experience overall was such a rewarding one. I loved being able to teach children the basic fundamentals of kitchen safety, teaching them to follow along with their group recipe, and helping them in discovering what their ‘secret’ clue may be for their quest. I highly recommend joining an experience like this one! Though it was a long two days, it was definitely worth while! Maybe one of these days I’ll blog about my experiences volunteering…ideas?
Originally, the recipe was called ‘Spinach brownies’ however, I found that the name was pretty deceiving for others to understand. Instead, I decided to call this just a normal ‘Spinach Quiche’. It’s really an easy recipe to follow, plus you can add more vegetables to your liking as well!
Let me know if any of you try this recipe out!
Note: Fits a 8 x 8 Casserole dish, and can be divided depending on number of people you are serving.
