Kale and Feta Crustless Quiche

by on March 6, 2013

Happy snow day! It’s not really snowing in the city yet (just rain) but Isaac’s school is closed for the day so he’s pretty pumped. I’ve decided that working from home is great… until there’s a snow day and you have no excuse not to go into the office. ;)

Oh well, today I have a delicious recipe I’ve been waiting to share. As you all know, I love kale! It’s one of the most nutrient dense foods we can eat and it tastes good, so naturally, I try to include it in any dish possible. Recently I decided to make a crustless quiche and of course, kale needed to be involved.

Kale quiche

I must say that when paired with eggs and feta, kale makes quite a delicious quiche. This recipe is makes for easy breakfasts throughout the week, but is also special enough to make for brunch. It would be great to serve on Easter morning. If you serve it for brunch, I promise your friends and family will be so satisfied with the flavor, they won’t even miss the crust.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Adapted from Tosca Reno’s Crustless Broccoli Quiche from The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook 2
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • cooking spray or coconut oil
  • 1 onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ½ cup chopped mushrooms
  • ½ teaspoon dried herbes de provence
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ½ bunch (about 3-4 cups) of kale, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • ⅓ cup egg whites
  • ⅔ cup unsweetened Original Almond Breeze almond milk
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • ⅓ cup feta cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray or coconut oil.
  2. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray or coconut oil and turn heat to medium-high. Add onion, garlic, mushrooms, herbes de provence, sea salt and pepper.
  3. Cook mixture, stirring occasionally and adding a tablespoon or two of water if the pan gets too dry, until onions are translucent and kale and mushrooms have wilted.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, almond milk and nutmeg. Season with an additional pinch of sea salt and pepper. Spread onion, mushroom and kale mixture on the bottom of prepared quiche dish. Sprinkle on the feta cheese.
  5. Pour egg mixture over top and push under any ingredients not covered by the egg mixture to prevent burning. Bake uncovered until set and golden brown around edges, about 25 minutes. Let quiche rest at room temperature for 10-12 minutes, then cut into eight slices and serve.

Kale and Feta Quiche With Almond Milk

Savory, cheesy and healthy = what’s not to love? I’m pretty positive that this is one of my favorite recipes that I’ve created for EBF. I couldn’t stop eating it. And that says a lot for something that doesn’t have peanut butter or chocolate.

Mmm, I love kale, love feta, love quiche! I usually make my quiche with cottage cheese instead of milk or cream, which gives it a really lovely texture. I’ll give it a try with the almond milk next time, though. Thanks for sharing!

This looks and sounds incredible! I always forget how much I love quiche until I have it. I think the last time I made one was for my mom for Mother’s Day but I usually cop out and buy a pre-made crust. Now I have a reason to make another quiche though. ;)

Yum, this quiche looks sensational! I make an extremely similar one with spinach and feta but it’s good to mix things up, so I’ll try it with kale :)

Thanks for the recipe!

Hey Brittany! Love this for some time now! But I couldn’t find the link from your lists on the recipe page…(had to find it for a friend and thought that would be the quickest way to locate it)…check it out…see if it is there or not. I did a search and found it again this way. Just wanted you to know! ;-) Love your blog, you are such a great inspiration! Keep up the great work!

Thank you for pointing this out. I’ll add it to the list! :)

I made this, adding spinach because I didn’t have enough kale, and it was great! It seemed a bit flat however; perhaps could have used a few more egg whites? I also made a perfect, thin crust using a multigrain gluten free wrap put out by Goodbye Gluten Bakeries!

Hi Brittany,

Thanks for all of the research and effort you put in which helps out people like me who aren’t sure where to begin :) A quick question – would you be able to recommend substitutes for the almond milk (I have an almond allergy :/ )
Cheers :)
