Kale & tomato cheesy quiche

I’m a huge kale fun, it’s so crunchy and full of character, and since it cooks so well, it’s a great replacement for spinach. If you don’t like the taste of it you can put it in a smoothie, but I think that with a bit of cheese and pastry it becomes the perfect winter comfort food !

Kale is super healthy and it boost your immune system, so it’s worth incomporating it in to your winter diet. And because cheese, eggs and milk are sources of calcium, and tomato is full of potassium and vitamin C, this kale & tomato cheesy quiche is a perfect, nutritious weekday dinner! If you’ll use ready made pastry it’ll be ready in less than an hour, and it’ll require only 10 minutes of preparation :).

Here is another’s recipe for a no fail weekday vegetarian dinner. Takes no more than 10 minutes of preparation, and around 45 minutes of baking ; great when it’s still warm , amazing when cooled down. And even thought full of comforting cheesy flavour , it’s still a quite healthy dinner option. However I must admit that I made it with a store bought pie crust, and I’m not really proud of that.. But it does speed things up!

Frozen pie crust

5 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Salt&pepper
2 tablespoons flour

1 big leek
1 cup of shredded cheese ( half cheddar, half Parmesan )

In a bowl whisk together eggs, milk, mustard , salt &pepper. Add slowly flour and make sure it blends well with the rest of your mixture. Add leek cut in to little round pieces and cheese, and pour in to crust. Bake on 400F for around 45 minute. Serve with a simple salad and enjoy your evening 🙂 .
