I have been spending the past few weekends with my grandpa in a small town outside of Toronto.
Since my grandmother was away in Ireland, I came down to cook for him and keep him company. I love spending time with him so it was a great excuse!
He has been complaining about his health and his weight a lot so I did my best to incorporate as many healthy dishes and greens as I could into his diet.
On my last night there, I wanted to make a light, healthy dinner that he could heat up for lunch the next day. The fridge was pretty bare, so I used what he had on hand (along with some kale I brought with me) and made a crustless quiche with greens.
This dish was very light so I served it with some roasted root vegetables from the night before, along with a little bit of leftover steak for my grandpa. He is Irish afterall – and loves his meat and potatoes!
He loved the eggs and happily ate the kale. He even suggested I add spinach next time! I can’t wait to make this again. I think next time I’ll bake it in muffin tins so that I have little individual quiches to take to work!
