Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche [Recipe]


Today, we are talking about one of my all time favorite dishes, quiche. I have always had a love affair with quiche and make it pretty regularly. There is just something home-y and comforting about a quiche. It dawned on me one day that the amount of butter and cream that goes into the crust is a problem. I turned to the great pinterest and looked at real crust alternatives. There was everything from zucchini and cauliflower to black beans and flax. I settled on sweet potatoes. before using the sweet potatoes as a crust for a very liquid-y recipe, I tried it out a few times by lining a pie dish and baking just the potatoes. I seemed perfect which led me to this recipe! 

What You Will Need

1 large sweet potatoe
coconut oil spray
1 bunch of spinach
1 leek sliced
1/2 onion diced
1 clove of garlic
4 eggs
1 cup shredded mozzarella
spring herbs (dill, parley, chives) to taste
1/4 cup goat cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (topping)
salt and pepper to taste

What You Will Do
1. Peel sweet potatoes and slice thinly.

2. Lay potato slices out in pie dish in a crust-like fashion, spray with oil, and bake on 400 degrees fahrenheit for 15 minutes. (After crust has baked, reduce oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.)

3. Spray a saute pan with oil and saute sliced onion, leek, and crushed garlic clove until lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Stir in spinach and saute until wilted and tender, about 4 minutes.

4. Blend eggs and herbs in a medium bowl. Add mozzerella and goat cheese

5. Add spinach/garlic/leek/onion mix to the egg/herb/cheese mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place the combined mixtures in the potato crust. Sprinkle with asiago cheese on top

6. In a 375 degree oven, bake until the quiche is firm and the cheese has browned, about 40 minutes.
