A simple and healthy breakfast! I don't use pie crust, although I'm sure it would be delicious with crust also. I make this on Sunday night, and I'm a little less grumpy getting out of bed on Monday morning knowing I can microwave this for breakfast!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch pie dish.
  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add kale, cover, and steam until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and place in prepared pie dish; add sliced leek and cherry tomatoes.
  3. Beat eggs in a bowl; stir in milk and shredded Italian cheese blend, followed by rosemary, sea salt, and ground black pepper.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the pie dish. Stir gently until egg mixture and kale mixture are evenly combined.
  5. Bake quiche in preheated oven until the center has set, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and top with grated Parmesan. Continue baking until quiche is lightly browned on top, about 20 more minutes. Remove from oven and enjoy!

We didn't have a leek so we used some red onion instead. This is a wonderfully tasty recipe. Tried it out on guests and the loved it as well. It was gone in one sitting with just the four of us (and I doubled the recipe!).

I've made this recipe several times and it is always a hit. The recipe, as stated is perfect, but I've used whatever cheese and vegetables I have on hand. If I'm using cheddar I often add Sriracha instead of the rosemary. It is also great with a little bacon or ham added. It is my "go to" for breakfast. It is also delicious heated up the next day.

This was a nice departure from my regular quiche, using fresh kale, tomatoes and rosemary from my garden made it more special and I served it as a main dish for dinner. I did make a pie crust that called for dried basil which gave an extra layer of flavor and I only used 3/4 cup milk then baked it at 400 degrees for 30 minutes in my small convection oven. Turned out great, I will definitely be making this again!
