Gluten Free Kale Quiche with Rice Crust

    45 mins

    1 hr 5 mins



2 cups cooked rice (white or brown ok, don't overcook rice)

2 egg whites

½ cup shredded cheddar cheese


5 large eggs

⅔ cup milk

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

3 green onions, thinly sliced

½ bunch kale, roughly torn (about 2-3 leaves)


Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate.

To make the crust, mix the rice with the egg whites and shredded cheese in a large bowl until well combined.

Press the rice mixture into the pie plate to form the crust. Bake until the crust begins to brown, 13 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly.

For the quiche: Whisk the eggs and milk in a large bowl. Then season mixture with salt and pepper to taste.

Add the onions and kale to the pie crust, arranging them in an even layer, then pour the egg-milk mixture over it. The kale will still be exposed and that is fine (it'll be crunchy out of the oven - yum!)

Bake until top is set in the center, about 25 to 30 minutes. Cool slightly before slicing and serving.
