Saag Paneer Becomes Quiche
In my house, the trick to eating up leftovers is through transformation. I can’t turn water into wine (wish I could!), but I can turn Saag Paneer from Wednesday night into a great quiche on Thursday. I used this saag paneer recipe from 101cookbooks. It’s not terribly authentic, but the result was fresh tasting and spinach forward. So the next night I took about two cups of leftover saag paneer (crumbling the cheese into bits), mixed in 1/4 cup of creme fraiche, 3 eggs, and 1/4 cup of crumbled feta. I blind baked a pie crust, and then poured in the quiche mix. I baked the quiche for 30 min at 425. The result was just a touch runny (maybe some more eggs or cream next time?), but it tasted great. A clever way to get two meals out of one, no?
