Zucchini, Spinach, and Onion Quiche

I just made up this dinner because I was out of mushrooms and I really had planned on making a Spinach and Onion Quiche, but it is AWESOME, so I wanted to get it down before I forgot what ended up in it. :) Enjoy!

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup ice water
1/4 cup vegetable oil

In a bowl stir together the flour and salt with a fork. In a separate bowl, whisk the water and oil so it gets thicker. Pour into flour and stir with a fork until it all combines. Press into bottom and sides of pie plate.

1 zucchini, peeled and small diced
1 large handful of baby spinach, washed and chopped
3 green onions, chopped

Saute all filling ingredients in a small amount of olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and then a little bit of nutmeg and cinnamon. Spread evenly over crust in pie plate and top with shredded mozzarella cheese.

6 eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream or half and half
salt, pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon to taste

Whisk ingredients and pour over filling ingredients and bake in a 400 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes or until set. Remove and let stand for a few minutes before slicing.
