    Yet another excellent recipe from Cooking Light...

    Mushroom-and-Spinach Quiche in an Oat Crust



    1 cup regular oats
    1/3 cup oat bran
    2 tablespoons chilled butter or stick margarine, cut into small pieces
    3 tablespoons cold water
    Cooking spray


    1 cup chopped leek
    1 1/4 cups sliced mushrooms
    1 cup evaporated fat-free milk
    1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon dried dill
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    3 large egg whites
    2 large eggs
    1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
    1/4 cup (1 ounce) finely shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese


    Preheat oven to 375°F.

    To prepare crust, combine oats and oat bran; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add water; stir just until moist. Press mixture gently into a ball on wax paper, and cover with additional wax paper. Roll dough, still covered, into a 10-inch circle.

    Remove 1 sheet of wax paper, and fit dough into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray.

    Remove top sheet of wax paper. Bake at 375°F for 7 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

    To prepare the filling, place a medium nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add leek; sauté for 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; sauté for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; spoon into a bowl.

    Combine milk and next 8 ingredients (milk through spinach) in a blender, and process until smooth. Add to mushroom mixture, and stir well. Pour into prepared crust, and sprinkle with Gruyere cheese. Bake at 375°F for 35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes.

    I ran it through Mastercook with nonfat milk instead of evaporated nonfat milk & I got 4 points each for 6 servings.
