  5. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm enough olive oil to lightly coat the pan. Cook the mushrooms with a dash of salt, stirring often, until tender.

  6. Toss in the arugula and let it wilt while stirring for about 30 seconds. Transfer the mixture to a plate to cool.

  9. Let the quiche cool for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing with a sharp knife. Serve immediately.
