I did this dish in my Davis Food Coop cooking class yesterday. The class, Healthy Winter Cooking In-Season, was the most well attended class I've had with the Coop to date - 10 class members! We used beets, spinach, carrots and oranges in a variety of dishes from soup and bread to casseroles and side dishes. I developed this particular recipe after receiving LOTS of greens (collards, kale, chard) from a local CSA I used to belong to. I'm a vegetarian so I couldn't throw a ham hock in with them for Southern-style greens, so what to do? I didn't know any other recipes with greens until this one! It's pretty simple to make, uses a pound and a half of healthy greens, and gets you hooked with a modest amount of super-flavorful cheeses and a touch of nutmeg. And you could substitute beet greens, kale (that's what we actually used in the class yesterday), spinach, chard - really any type of green.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 lbs collard greens (I used 1lb collards; 1/2lb spinach), washed well, dried and coarsely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups soy milk
  • 2 oz gruyere cheese, grated
  • 1 oz parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg and black pepper, each
  • 1/3 cup plain breadcrumbs

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat large pot of water to boiling. Add salt and greens and cook 2 minutes. Drain and let cool. Squeeze greens to remove as much liquid as possible.
  3. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and onion and cook until soft, but not browned, about 2-3 minutes. Add greens and stir to incorporate. Remove from heat.
  4. Whisk eggs and soy milk in a large bowl. Add 2/3 of mixed cheeses, nutmeg and black pepper and then pour into greens mixture. Stir to incorporate well.
  5. Pour into a 2Q baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle breadcrumbs and remaining cheeses. Bake for 30 minutes until custard is set. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
