Spinach and Kale Quiche

Spinach and Kale quiche by Jae-Ha Kim

Like pasta, quiche is one of my go-to meals. I stopped putting bacon in my quiche a few years ago. Don’t get me wrong. I love bacon. But, I don’t like cooking it (too much grease and splatter). Instead, I fill my quiche with lots of yummy veggies. I’ve used spinach for a while. Since I had a bunch of kale that I wanted to use up before it went bad, I added that, too. It was delicious.

I don’t really use a recipe for my quiche, but this is what I basically did. Feel free to tweak the ingredients to suit your taste buds:


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put a pie crust in a pie pan and bake for about 10 minutes. I do this so that crust doesn’t taste raw.

For the filling:

4 eggs beaten

3/4 cup milk

pound of shredded gruyere cheese (Swiss cheese will work, too, but it won’t taste as rich)

pinch of salt and pepper to taste

On the stovetop:

Drizzle a couple tablespoons of olive oil into a frying pan. Sautee about 4 cloves of garlic. Add half a diced onion. When the onion becomes translucent, add some spinach and kale. I used 22 ounces of the former and about 12 ounces of the latter. (I’ve also made this using frozen spinach in the past. Just be sure to strain the fluids out before sauteeing it.)

Mix this in with the cheese/egg mixture and pour into the pie crust.

Bake for another 35 minutes. Et voila!

I like to serve this with a simple salad, or sliced cucumbers and hummus.

As for the white bowl at the top of the photo? Freshly sliced pineapples, for a light and refreshing dessert. The bowl was full, but we nibbled on a good chunk of them before it occurred to me that I should take a picture. 🙂

    This was soooo good. I had 10oz of each…frozen broccoli, turnip greens, and fresh spinach. There were so much vegetable for 4 eggs I wondered how it could be so yummy! Scrumptious! I will make it again and again!

      I’m so glad you liked it! It’s one of my favorite things to make, especially when it’s a little chilly out. I like that there’s a lot of vitamins packed into this dish, too. 🙂

    Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!
