Kale, Quinoa & Goat Cheese Crustless Quiche

I have been a super busy cook lately with tonnes of recipes being uploaded over the last week. I even prepped a bunch of blog posts so you won't have to wait weeks (ahem) in between my posts (Sorry readers!)

This recipe is a great addition to our quick and easy weeknight dinner rotation. I also happen to love quiche and love adding new and interesting ingredients to it.

The quinoa definitely gives this a different texture and makes this dish amazing served hot or cold!

First cook your quinoa according to package directions. I cooked 2 cups of quinoa in water and it was the perfect amount for this dish. No leftovers. Set the cooked quinoa aside.
Chop about 2-3 Cups of washed Kale. Set this aside as well.
In a large saucepan, caramelize 1 thinly slice onion with some olive oil, salt and pepper.
Once Onion is nicely caramelized add 2 Cloves minced garlic and your kale. Season and lower the heat. The Kale only needs a couple minutes to soften up.
Add your cooked quinoa to the kale and onions.
And add 1 cup shredded Cheddar and 1 small package (about 1/4 cup) of fresh goat cheese. Mix really well.
Pour about 6 large eggs over your mixture and combine. Pour into a oven proof pie dish and bake at 350F until quiche has puffed up and eggs are slightly browned on top (about 30 Minutes)
Slice and serve!
