Only it’s in a quiche!
Parmesan cheese, onion, garlic powder, eggs, and light cream are combined with spinach and kale in this quiche and baked in an already prepared pie crust which helps me speed up the prep time.
Frozen pie crusts come in handy and are great to have on hand in your freezer.
Keep in mind, the crust may not bake into a “perfect-picture-Pinterest-looking-quality,” but hey,… that’s OK!
It’s the flavor that matters…
Simple recipes like this spinach and kale quiche come in handy, especially if you need to whip up a quick meal at the spur of the moment.
Quiches are versatile and can be made with a variety of ingredients.
However, if you want a perfect crust for your quiche, you will need to bake the crust for a few minutes before the filling goes in. This will ensure your pie crust won’t turn out soggy on the bottom.
For a crispy crust, you can pre-bake the pie crust using Mrs. Anderson’s pie weights or dry beans. If using dry beans, discard them after use. It’s totally up to you and a matter of preference.
What if you don’t have a frozen pie crust?
Don’t fret. If you can easily make this a crustless quiche! Just follow this recipe and bake the spinach and kale mixture in your pie baking dish that has been generously buttered, and bake according to the directions.
What if you prefer a gluten-free quiche?
You can easily make this quiche using a frozen gluten-free pie crust. They sell them in the freezer section at Whole Foods.
For this Spinach and Kale Quiche recipe:
First, You will need to flavor and saute some of the ingredients before they go into the crust. The onions are sauteed in a skillet for a few minutes, then add in the kale and spinach and stir until they wilt.
Next, transfer the spinach and kale mixture into a food processor and pulse to finely chop it.
Finally, mix all the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl, including the cream and transfer to your already prepared pie crust, and bake until golden and crispy on top.
Both greens, spinach, and kale are loaded with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Kale is also known to help promote bone density; and in fact, in just one cup of cooked kale contains more than 100% the daily requirement of vitamin K.
Both spinach and kale are among the healthiest greens to consume! More good reasons to buy up some spinach and kale this week!
