Pretty Little Quiche

July 3, 2014

So, when Ryan was out of town a few weeks ago, I started watching Pretty Little Liars.

OH. MY. GOD.

I’m so addicted right now.  So many questions! Who is “A”? Will we ever know who killed Ali? Is Ali really dead?  Why are Aria’s earrings so big? Is this the first thing Chad Lowe has done since he did that made-for-tv John Denver movie in 2001? WILL WE GET TO SEE MORE OF JODY SAWYER AS THE SHOW GOES ON???

Please God let there be more Jody Sawyer.

Anyway.

This really has nothing to do with what we had for dinner last night; I just had to get those questions out into the universe.

Last night, I cooked up this easy quiche for dinner.  I have to say, it was tasty and pretty healthy too—lots of veggies and protein (turkey and eggs), plus I didn’t put cheese in it.  If you wanted to make it eve healthier, you could make it crust-free…but really, who wants to forgo pie crust in a quiche?

Turkey and Kale Quiche

Ingredients:

1 prepared pie crust, thawed

1/2 white onion, chopped

4-5 large kale leaves (stem removed), torn into smallish pieces

1 small zucchini, chopped

1 cup sliced white mushrooms

10 oz. (half a standard package) of ground turkey

5 eggs

1/2 cup milk (I used whole since it’s what we have for Lila)

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350.

In a pan, heat 1 tbsp. olive oil.  Add onion and cook for 5 minutes.  Add kale, zucchini, and mushrooms (you can also season with salt here) and continue to cook until kale has wilted down and veggies are soft, about 15 minutes.  Remove from pan and set aside in a heat-safe bowl. 

Put pan back on heat and add turkey.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cook for 10-15 minutes, breaking into small pieces with the back of a wooden spoon, until turkey is browned.  Transfer to same bowl as the veggies.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and milk together well.

Allow the turkey and veggies to cool for 10-15 minutes, then transfer to the pie crust.  Pour eggs over the veggies.

Transfer to oven and cook until eggs are cooked and firm—it was about 40 minutes for our quiche, but cooking times might vary.

I hear Lila stirring—we’re going to the Space and Rocket Center today with some out of town guests, which I’m excited about.  I haven’t been in the entire time we’ve lived here—almost three full years now!?!  Crazy how fast time flies.

Hope you have a great Thursday and a happy holiday weekend!

    Enjoy the Space and Rocket Center! What a pretty meal. And I love that quiche sits well in the fridge, so the leftovers are just as good. I’ve never watched pretty little liars! Maybe I need to catch up ?

    Haha, I’m the opposite. I’d rather have quiche in a ramekin than quiche without cheese!

    YES YES YES PRETTY LITTLE LIARS IS THE BEST. I also appreciate your Jody Sawyer reference.
