Ever Evolving Food Blog
Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.
All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Kale, Mushroom, and Green Onion Crustless Quiche
I am trying to be a clean eater these days, so I don't eat anything out of a can, a box, frozen meals, junk food, or fast food. I try, as much as possible to use natural, fresh, organic ingredients when I prepare meals. It's not always possible, but it is certainly do-able for the major part of what I eat now. This is a recipe that I made using the best ingredients I could find that were good for me.
3 brown, cage-free, grain-fed eggs (Simple Truth)
1 ½ cups unsweetened soy milk (Silk)
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp nutmeg
2 Tbsp grape seed oil
5 green onions, minced
3 garlic cloves, chopped (or 2 tsp organic minced garlic)
5 white, button mushrooms,diced
2 cups kale, chopped
1-2 Tbsp chives, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9-inch glass or ceramic pie pan by brushing with grape seed oil.
In a bowl, whisk together eggs, soymilk, nutmeg, red pepper flakes, and black pepper. Set aside
In a skillet on med-high, heat grape seed oil. Add onions and garlic, cooking until softened (3-5 min). Stir in kale and mushrooms and cook, stirring until wilted (5 min).
Spoon the veggies into the pie pan, then poor the egg and soymilk mixture gently on top. Sprinkle chives evenly over the top.
Bake until the quiche is just set in the center, about 40-50 min. Cool completely on a rack before serving.
