Kale, Avocado, and Ricotta Pie Recipe

Kale, Avocado & Ricotta Pie
Alexis Anderson

Ingredients

  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • 2 Hass avocados, 1 mashed and the other sliced into slivers
  • 2/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 6 slices cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1 ½ bunches kale, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • ½ vidalia onion, diced
  • ½ cup canned artichokes, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Oil, for greasing

This is a very simple dish, as good for dinner as it is for brunch. You can play around with the ingredients a bit, adding more artichoke or avocado, or substituting spinach for kale or sausage for bacon. You can't go wrong — unless you forget to garnish with a delicious ripe avocado.

Pour contents of bowl into the greased cake pan and cook until the pie is set and a bit crispy on top, about 35 minutes.

Cool for 5 minutes and serve topped with slivers of avocado.
