  1. I cook it with potatoes and sausage all in one pot. Take the sausage out when the potatoes are done and mix it like mashed potatoes,with the kale. Add a little mustard and put a piece of sausage with it. Real stick to your ribs, cold weather typical Dutch meal. My family loves it.

  3. Looks yummy. We actually do a similar crustless quiche (several days a week for lunch because it’s so simple)

    1/2 cup “raw” cashews (I’m sure almonds or other nut would work fine too, even quinoa like recipe above…we’ll have to try)
    1 cup milk ( we use coconut or cashew )
    4 eggs
    1 bunch kale or spinach (finely chopped)
    1 tbsp tahini ( optional but we love the added flavor)
    3/4 tsp dill
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    Pinch of salt
    1 can of wild salmon from Costco ( I thi k they’re 6 oz)
    1/1 tbsp oil of choice or butter

    Oven at 425
    Heat a 9″ or 10″ glass pie dish in oven while mixing ingredients

    Grind cashews into flour ( I use magic bullet)
    Combine All ingredients, pour into hot dish with oil/butter and bake for apps 20 min.

    My kids love this (6 & 8)
    Obviously you could add fresh garlic or sautéed onions or even mushrooms, but for us the dried herbs and tahini are quick and ready to go. We are not only gluten free but grain free, dairy free and sugar free and we homeschool too so we need quick lunches.

  4. i vote the kale chips!!! they are sooo good – I just bake mine on 400 with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper – obviously washed and torn first. we also juice kale.
