Kale Tart

Submitted by: LINDACC.1

Introduction

This is a great way to eat those summer greens. Can use swiss chard, beet greens, cabbage, leeks or any greens as well as kale. A terrific brunch. This is a great way to eat those summer greens. Can use swiss chard, beet greens, cabbage, leeks or any greens as well as kale. A terrific brunch.

Directions

Make (or buy) a single pie crust; poke holes in bottom and bake in a 425 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Reduce oven temperature to 375.
While crust is baking, add olive oil to a large skillet and add the onion, cooking until onions are soft --8-10 minutes.
Coarsely chop 1 pound of kale or whatever greens you are using (I estimated 6 cups in the calorie calculations) and 2 cloves of garlic. Add to skillet, cooking until tender, about 8-10 minutes.
Season with 2 T chopped fresh basil, 1/4 t salt and 1/8 t. ground black pepper. A pinch of ground red pepper is optional.

In a bowl combine 3 large eggs, slightly beaten, 1/3 C. plain, low-fat yogurt, and 1 C. grated Parmesan cheese (see ingredients for options).

Add the kale mixture and then scrape the mixture into the prepared tart shell, spreading evenly.

Bake at 375 until filling is golden and firm. About 25-35 minutes.

  • We had this for dinner tonight. I had to substitute low fat cottage cheese for the plain yogurt, which would have added a little tang which would have been nice. I was glad to find this recipe - a different way to serve kale. I will definitely make it again. - 3/22/12
