Here’s one of my favorite quiche recipes of all time. Cheesy Crustless Kale Quiche has no crust, so you won’t have to worry about rolling out the perfect gluten free pie crust. And it’s bursting with veggies, spices, and two kinds of cheese. It’s the perfect thing to serve when you have gluten free guests coming over, or even on a Sunday morning with the family!

It’s been an eventful two weeks, that’s for sure! Andrew and I have finally purchased our first home! We’re really excited to get moved in, and closing on our house can’t come soon enough. While we love our apartment, living on the 3rd floor is kind of like climbing Mount Everest everyday. And my photography cabinet has grown more into a photography room. So our new home has big photography studio plans. That’s right, we’re getting 3 bedrooms of pure, storage-space bliss.

On top of this eventful week, my computer decided to stop turning on. Which explains the sudden lack of recipes on this blog. Sorry! But I sent it out for repair, and now I’m back in business. Starting with kale quiche!

Kale quiche definitely lives up to its name. It’s stuffed with veggies, like kale (of course) and onion. And then you get cherry tomatoes, which are bursting with sweetness and juiciness. There’s really no comparison to that incredible kick of flavor you get when you bite into one. And I especially love when they’re cooked into dishes like this kale quiche.

Delicious!

Please ignore the dirty pan in front of you. I like to think of it like this… The dirtier the pan gets, the more delicious the food is going to be. Think about it! Lasagna, the worst dirty-pan culprit of them all, yet the most delicious thing on the planet.

Which, in my opinion, is just further proof that this is pretty much the most delicious kale quiche there is.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!
