Quinoa and Kale Mini Quiches {Vegetarian}

For a pre-St. Patty's Day special, I posted the very green Quinoa and Kale Mini Quiches over at today adapted from Quinoa and Kale Crustless Quiche. I made them mini quiches because the kids love miniaturized things. But I have a bit of a confession to make: I hate quiche. A lot. I know a lot of people love them. And I really TRIED to like them. It seems like something I should like, right? So I thought I'd give it another chance with this delicious sounding filling of quinoa, cream cheese, kale and perfectly caramelized onions. Plus, I try to be fair to readers over at OAMM who probably like things that I don't like; like quiche and celery, by sometimes sucking it up and making things I'm not so fond of. Luckily, the filling on its own was fantastic.

The Results
The quiche failed me again. I'm just not a big fan of eggs, so once the filling is topped with eggs and baked, I just don't care for it. The kids and I gobbled up some of the filling, but ended up giving away the mini quiches to neighbors who are a bit more quichey people than we are. The kids picked at theirs a bit; I'm sure my stinky face didn't help. But, I feel better for having experimented with quiche once again.

  1. That's to bad. I just love quiche.Just keep trying different variations. You'll find the right one!

  2. Thank you so much for your honesty! I do like quiche and I am sure I would enjoy these cute little ones, but I know what it is like when there is something you just don't like. I am like that with porridge. I want to like it, I try to like it, but I just can't eat it! As we do like quiche I'll pop over to OAMM and check out your recipe :)
