Kale Quiche

I have never made a quiche before, and I am realizing now that is a very big mistake on my part.  They are delicious and fairly easy to make.  I got this recipe from my CSA box, and this is the only way I have found I like to eat kale.

What's in it
1 bunch kale or collard 
1 small onion chopped
salt and pepper
olive oil
5 eggs
3/4 C milk
1/2 shredded cheese
1 pie crust

How it's made
Preheat oven to 350.  Slice kale into thin ribbons, then spin in salad spinner if needing a wash.  Heat the oil in a pan, then add onion and cook until soft and tender.  Add kale and saute another few minutes until tender.  Remove from heat and salt and pepper to taste.

Beat eggs and milk together until frothy.  Add kale mixture to pie crust and stir in cheese.  Pour eggs on top and gently stir in.  Bake 35-45 minutes until set in the middle.  Cool 5 minutes before serving.

  1. My roommate Christy ate kale a lot before I started to try it. I think it's delicious! I'll see if she will post a recipe for you to try. I made a frittata recently and I felt the same way about it. Easy and tasty! You can put anything in it! I'll post that soon, too.
