Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly oil a 9-inch round baking pan (if not using a crust).
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a wide skillet. Add the leeks and poblano pepper, and cook until the leeks are just beginning to turn brown, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. Add the broccoli, kale, a small pinch of salt and cook, stirring until the kale is wilted and the broccoli is bright green. Turn off the heat.
  4. In a medium bowl, lightly whisk the eggs with the chopped parsley, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese.
  5. Spread half the broccoli mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan or pie crust, if using. Pour in half of the egg mixture, sprinkle with half of the goat cheese, then top with the remaining broccoli, eggs, and goat cheese.
  6. Bake in the oven to 10 to 12 minutes, or until the eggs have set and are golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.

  1. This is excellent. Cooking for my husband fighting rectum cancer.
    He is suffering the ravages of chemo and radiation to his rectum, it is challenging to find recipes that are both healthy nutrition and practical. Too often ingredients are focused simply on protein and little on keeping healthy (heavy cream, butter, etc!) I love this recipe, he loved it too!
