Meatless Monday: Kale Fritatta

I usually only use kale in mashpot but I was looking for another way to use kale for some variation. I found this recipe for kale frittata in the cook book Home Made Winter by Yvette van Boven and adjusted the recipe somewhat to my taste and replaced the bacon for a vegetarian one. The recipe has a long cook time, but it is largely unattended.

Kale Frittata (serves 4)
- 500 gr kale, chopped
- 200 gr vegetarian bacon
- 8 eggs
- 100ml cream
- 100gr grated cheese
- salt, pepper and other herbs you want to add
- some oil

Heat some oil in a pan and bake the vegetarian bacon bits shortly. Add the kale and a bit of water and leave it be for about 25 minutes. Stir occasionally. Meanwhile beat the eggs. Then add the cream, salt, pepper, herbs (I used thyme) and cheese and stir through. Cover an oven dish with a baking sheet. Drain the kale and press out as much fluid as you can. Then place the kale in the oven dish and cover with the egg mixture. Place this in a pre heated oven on 180 degrees (170 with a microwave oven) for another 25 minutes and serve.

MMMM is a weekly carnival dedicated to those interested in improving their personal health and the health of the planet by reducing meat consumption one day a week. Every Monday you have a chance to feature a link to something meatless. It doesn’t have to be a recipe {although that would be nice}, it can be a picture of a meatless meal you ate that week, an interesting article you read about meat consumption, a post on your blog about going meatless, perhaps a post on someone else’s blog you found helpful, anything Meatless Monday appropriate.

  1. I would love to have this for dinner some night! Unfortunately Mister says no eggs for dinner. Although it would make a great weekend breakfast as well. Kale and eggs always go good together.

    Thanks for sharing this with Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays.
