Spinach-chorizo pie


Author Notes: I love spinach, even as a child. I am not a fan of quiche or pies with loads of cream and cheese so I always reduce the amount of cream or substitute with ricotte or yoghurt. The chorizo adds a bit of spice. You can use your favorite pie crust. I usually use a graham cracker crust or whole wheat shortcrust pastryMarieGlobetrotter
