Hi friends!

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 cream, high calorie cheese and a thick buttery crust.  Don’t get my 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 perfect healthy, lowcarb, veggie packed meal that you can add to your families 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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    • JulieWunder April 3, 2016 at 5:47 pm - Reply

      You can! And you could put almost any veggie in it.

  22. This looks so delicious! I’ve never made a quiche myself, but now I’m inspired to do so!

  23. I am a lover of all things mushroom!! Looks fantastic!

    I can eat breakfast or quiche any time of day! Breakfast for dinner is a quick go-to for me.

  26. Love the feta and Mozzarella combo my fave! Eggs are always a winner in my book

    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!

    • JulieWunder April 3, 2016 at 5:41 pm - Reply

      Yeah– that crust is soooo good! I want a veggie pot pie now 🙂

  28. Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy March 29, 2016 at 6:05 am - Reply

    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.

    • JulieWunder April 3, 2016 at 5:41 pm - Reply

      I can’t get enough kale right now! It’s soooo good!

    I didn’t start eating quiche until about 10 years
    ago. I’m a fan now.
