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.
