Spinach Ham Quiche with Vegetarian Option

This started life as a Vegetarian Spinach Quiche recipe for the now closed Mandala Wellness Retreat in Georgia. Each Monday night the hosts gathered with friends to make a Vegetarian Supper and this was voted the best spinach quiche recipe. We updated it with fresh spinach leaves in place of frozen and chopped cooked ham, but either with meat or vegetarian, it’s a winner.
