Turnip & Kale Green Quiche

Turnip & Green Quiche
If you remember a couple posts back, I lamented about the only thing growing in my garden being turnips… which my husband is allergic to and nobody else likes. I honestly don’t remember why I planted them, but there they where. And while they where there, I knew I had to figure out something to do with them!

Now, I usually stick my greens in things like salads and smoothies, but I wasn’t so fond of the “furriness” of turnip greens, so I decided they must be cooked. Since quiche was on the menu (I can now tolerate farm-fresh eggs, thanks to the GAPS Diet), my first thought was to chop them up and mix them in. But with kids begging for food and my brain still waking up, laziness easy won out and into the blender they went with some fresh kale and all the other quiche ingredients! 
When my anxious kiddos peeked into the oven and saw that their breakfast was green, they were in awe. No qualms over green eggs here, folks!

Needless to say, we no longer question how we’re going to use our turnip greens. Green quiche is the way to go!

  1. I'm never sure what to do with turnips, but this looks like a fun and tasty way to also get my kid to eat kale! And my in laws' chickens are currently going wild with egg laying so we certainly could get a few from there to use for this. Pinning 🙂

  2. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the actual turnip, myself. :p I will probably end up taking them to church to see if anyone wants them… or just composting them. Hope you enjoy the quiche if you get a chance to make it, Yuliya!

  3. Well I have to say that I have never tried a combination quiche like this, but it sounds yum. Looks like a great recipe to try for something different.

    Thanks for sharing at Marvelous Monday on Smart Party Planning 😉
