Easy Kale Quiche

Easy Kale Quiche

Equipment: glass pie pan, microwave safe bowl

olive oil
1/4 cup raw sesame seeds

1 bunch dinosaur kale
3 eggs, 2 egg whites
2 cloves minced garlic
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped Canadian bacon [not GRAP]
1 tsp stone ground mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Grease a pie pan with olive oil and then coat pan with sesame seeds, shaking and turning pan to cover totally. Set aside.

Wash kale and remove tough ribs from leaves. Place kale in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for one minute, (The goal is to get the kale tender but still crisp. You may require more or less time depending on your microwave.) Add garlic and onion to bowl and microwave for one more minute until kale is tender. Let sit until warm, then squeeze out excess moisture and chop kale mixture. Return to bowl. Break eggs into bowl and add egg whites. (You can substitute 1 whole egg for the egg whites for a richer dish). Beat the eggs into the mixture with a fork. Add Canadian bacon, salt, pepper and mustard, mix well. Pour mixture into prepared pie pan and bake for 20-30 minutes until top looks dry and puffy. Remove and cool.
