You could make this for dinner with your favorite greens, then have some for lunch the next day with a salad! A wonderful French creation adapted from Vegetarian Times magazine.

A delicious low carb quiche that is packed full of flavor. I used 4 cups of lightly packed kale which I chopped prior to wilting. The timing was perfect. This was served with your Tomato Feta Salad.
