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.

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.

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.

Description

This crustless quiche is such an easy low-carb meal that can be served for breakfast/brunch, lunch or dinner. You’ll love the delicious combination of kale, onions, mushrooms and feta. 


Ingredients

  • cooking spray or coconut oil
  • 1 onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 bunch (about 34 cups) of kale, chopped
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup egg whites
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened Original Almond Breeze almond milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese
  • fresh chopped parsley, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 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, kale, dried Italian seasoning, 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 four slices, top with fresh parsley and serve.

      I tried this recipe and it turned out pretty good! The 25 minutes was not enough though; I had to re-bake for longer after letting it cool and cutting into it because the middle was not set.

        Thanks for the feedback, Haylee. How much longer did you end up cooking it for? Some ovens are hotter than others so the cook time always vary oven to oven.

      What a great idea to use up the excess kale growing in our garden. It’s delish! My husband was hesitant to have it so I did add 1/3 cup of sausage crumbles for him. It definitely doesn’t need it. I might try making it in muffin tins and having freezer friendly breakfasts ready in a flash.

        So glad this quiche was a hit, Debbie. Thanks for making it and for coming back to leave a comment + star rating. And definitely let me know if you try these as muffin cups and how they turn out!!

      Just found your site about a week ago and I’m hooked! Made this tonight, “breakfast for dinner” because I had all of the ingredients and wow was it delicious and easy to make.

      Great recipe! I added fresh chillies and omitted the egg whites but added one extra eggs. Also doubled the feta cheese and nutmeg.

      I made this with arugula instead of kale, and added broccoli! I also seasoned with rosemary and thyme.
      It was delicious!

      Is it possible to use another non-dairy milk besides Almond? Have you ever tried adding non-dairy cheese?

      1. Brittany Mullins
        April 7, 2020 AT 12:08 pm

        Hey Kelly – You can use whatever milk you prefer. 🙂 And I haven’t tried non-dairy cheese, but you can certainly experiment with it!

      Could i use Chopped Frozen Kale? Want to try this for the Weekend!! And I have some frozen kale calling my name

        Hey Eliana – That should work just fine, I would just make sure to let it defrost so you can squeeze out all the excess liquid otherwise your quiche might turn out too liquidy. Let me know how it turns out for you!

      My husband doesn’t like Feta. What alternative would you suggest?

      1. Brittany Mullins
        June 17, 2019 AT 9:00 pm

        Any other cheese that you and your husband like will work!

      Instead of the egg whites, how would flax gel work? I hate the idea of using only the whites and don’t use eggs that frequently to want to store the yolks. Other than this the recipe looks like a good one to try.

        I don’t know how using flaxseed eggs would work for this. My recommendation would be to use 3 eggs instead of the 1/3 cup egg whites — so 6 eggs total.

      Would you post the nutrition information for this recipe please? I’ve been so excited to find a blog that has healthy recipes with nutrition info! We are kind of new vegetarians and have started doing some high intensity training. I’ve had to really watch my protein because I’ve been so POOPED! Can’t believe how out of shape I let myself get! Love your site!

      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 🙂

      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!

      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!
