Vegetarian Crustless Kale Quiche is healthy twist on this classic dish! Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Quiche may be kind of old-fashioned, but I'm a fan. It is so versatile and makes a great breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Jeesh, I'd even eat it as a snack if you gave me the option.
Ordering it out often means lots of heavy creams, high-calorie cheese, and a thick buttery crust. Don't get me wrong... I love it too. But it's not the kind of thing I could eat on a regular basis. It's more of a special occasion food.
This Vegetarian Crustless Kale Quiche takes those stereotypes away. This is a perfectly healthy, low-carb, veggie-packed meal that you can add to your family's meal rotation today.
You could easily do a more classic preparation with spinach, but I'm all about some kale lately, so I added it instead. I love the texture of it in the crustless vegetarian quiche.
Serve it with fruit in the morning or a side salad for lunch for a light dinner. I added a sprouted grain roll when I make this for dinner. But you can skip it if you are trying to eat fewer carbs.
It's even pretty enough to serve at a brunch or shower! Everyone will rave over this crustless kale quiche.
Crustless Kale, Mushroom & Feta Quiche
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- ½ small sweet onion, or ¼ large
- 8 ounces portobello mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cups kale
- ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
- ¼ teaspoon dried crushed rosemary
- ½ teaspoon salt, divided
- ½ teaspoon pepper, divided
- 4 large eggs
- 1 ½ cups 1% milk
- ½ cup half and half
- 4 ounces reduced fat feta cheese
- ¼ cup 2% mozzarella cheese
- cooking spray
- Preheat the oven 350 degrees and spray a pie pan with cooking spray. Place the pan on a cookie sheet.
- In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, saute the onions in the olive oil for 3-5 minutes or until translucent. Season with a pinch of the spices and salt and pepper.
- Add the mushrooms and cook for 5-8 minutes or until tender. Season with another pinch of the spices, salt and pepper.
- Add the kale and saute approximately 2 minutes, just until wilted and tender. Add the rest of the spices and a small pinch of salt and pepper.
- Remove from the heat.
- In a large bowl, mix the eggs, milk, half and half and the remainder of the salt and pepper. You should have about half left.
- Put half the veggie mixture in the pie pan and top with half the feta cheese. Pour half the egg mixture on top. Repeat.
- Finish by sprinkling the mozzarella cheese on top.
- Cook 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Thanks for hosting!
YUM! This brings back so many memories! As a kid my mom always made quiche for Easter. Christmas, and on many weekends for brunch on Sunday. My brother would always want broccoli, bacon, and cheese, sometimes with mushroom. I always wanted a veggie one with no crust so my mom would make me my own little one in a single serve pie pan. I also remember having Easter at my parents house many years ago and I tried to add spinach to the quiche and you would have thought it was the end of the world!
The girls just ate muffin egg bakes and liked them so I'm thinking quiche, fresh fruit, and coffee will be on the menu one of these up coming weekend mornings we have free. Thank you for linking up with us, happy Meatless Monday!
So sweet that your Mom made you your own! Such a great story. I hope you have a chance to make my version.

Ellen @ My Uncommon Everyday says
I am bizarrely anti-pie crust all the time. I've always eaten only the fillings of pies unless they're graham cracker- or Oreo-crusted. That said, I LOVE crustless quiche and this flavor combo looks fabulous!
This is perfect for you then 🙂
Need. Want. Gotta have! Looks AMAZING! Thanks for linking up and sharing 🙂 Pinned for later!
Thanks for hosting! I hope you enjoy it.
Kathryn @ Family Food on the Table says

Thanks Angie! I hope you get a chance to try it!
I IIke quiche but I have never had it w kale usually it's spinach inside. I also like that it is so versatile. You can eat it for any meal.
You can! And you could put almost any veggie in it.
Morgan @ Morgan Manages Mommyhood says

I can eat breakfast or quiche any time of day! Breakfast for dinner is a quick go-to for me.
Me too! We have it way to often!
Deborah @ Confessions of a mother runner says
Love the feta and Mozzarella combo my fave! Eggs are always a winner in my book
Me too! Great protein for us veg heads!
Susie @ SuzLyfe says
I would eat the crust and only the crust if given the opportunity (hello, chicken pot pie is basically an excuse to do so) but I would rather not put myself in that position!
Yeah-- that crust is soooo good! I want a veggie pot pie now 🙂
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy says
To me, the quiche is all about the filling anyway, so we often have it crustless. I would happily add kale to everything too. I am kale obsessed and it goes so well with eggs.
I can't get enough kale right now! It's soooo good!
Blane Sherer says
I didn't start eating quiche until about 10 years
ago. I'm a fan now.
It's such a good versatile dish, I'm glad you like it!
