Cauliflower, Mushroom and Greens Brunch Impossible Pie

Serves: 8


1 (12 ounce) bag Cut 'N Clean Greens Beet Greens

1 (1 ounce) Cut 'N Clean Greens Seasoning pack

8 ounces cauliflower florets, chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 onion, chopped

1 (8 ounce) package sliced mushrooms

1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese

1 1/2 cups milk

3 eggs

3/4 cup baking mix (such as Bisquick)


Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly mist a 10-inch pie dish with nonstick spray and set aside.

Microwave cauliflower in a vented microwave-safe container for 3 minutes. While that is cooking, heat oil in a 12-inch skillet. When hot, sauté onion and mushrooms for about 5 minutes, until tender. Chop half the bag (6 ounces) of beet greens a bit finer (save rest of beet greens for another use). Add greens and 5 teaspoons of the Seasoning mix to the skillet, and sauté for another 3 minutes, until greens are wilted and the mixture is fragrant. Transfer greens mixture and cooked cauliflower to prepared pie dish and stir to mix. Sprinkle with cheese. (Save rest of Seasoning packet for another use.)

In a 4-cup measuring cup, measure the milk, and add eggs and baking mix. Whisk vigorously until well blended well. Pour over vegetables in pie dish, and place in oven. Bake until golden brown, 30-35 minutes.

Serving suggestion: Accompany with a fruit salad, a tossed green salad and perhaps some cinnamon toast or garlic bread (if you want to skew more savory).

If your store doesn’t carry the Seasoning packet, you may buy it from our Web site, If you would like to substitute, you may omit the Seasoning mix and add 1/2 teaspoon garlic power, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon brown sugar, 3/4 teaspoon salt and a sprinkling of cayenne pepper, or any herb and spice combination you favor.

Bisquick makes a new “Heart Smart Bisquick” version that is low-fat, cholesterol free and has no trans fats. But suit yourself as to the variety of baking mix you use.

You may substitute broccoli for the cauliflower if you like. Microcook it for about 2 minutes.

What to do with the remaining beet greens and Seasoning mix? Wilt the beet greens and add them to your favorite scrambled egg dish or omelet. You may add a sprinkling of Seasoning mix to your morning eggs, as well, or use it instead of salt and pepper to season mashed potatoes or instead of garlic for your garlic bread.

A 1,100-watt microwave oven was used for this recipe. If your wattage is lower, you may find your cauliflower needs more cooking time; if your wattage is higher, it may need less time.
