This vegetarian Kale Quiche is so hearty, you’ll never miss the meat… it’s chock full of kale, roasted red peppers, mushrooms, onions and cheese!
This is no doubt one of my favorite quiche recipes originally posted a little over a month after starting the blog. I love quiche because it’s so versatile – quiche can be served for any meal of the day!
It all starts with an easy refrigerated pie crust filled with the kale and vegetable mixture. Then top it with shredded cheese and pour the egg mixture on top.
Pair this quiche with a salad for the ultimate satisfying vegetarian dinner!
Another great thing about baked quiche is that it can be frozen and reheated easily. I wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, then put it in a resealable plastic bag. When ready to heat, unwrap and bake for approximately 20 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until heated thoroughly. Reheating an individual slice takes less time to reheat (about 10 minutes).
