Goats Cheese and Spinach Quiche with a Sweet Potato Crust

This quiche is an all-time favourite for me. I love everything about it, all the flavours, the sweetness, the savouriness, it’s a magical quiche! I was on a quest to see if I could make a quiche without using pastry. So I looked what I had in the kitchen and ideas online, so I decided to make it with sweet potatoes! I had heard about the combination of sweet potato and goats cheese but I wanted to make it a little ‘healthier’ so I decided to throw in some vegetables too! That night I really tried to only have one serving but it was so tasty I probably had three!

I made it a second time for my sister and her boyfriend while they were working very hard on their final projects for university. The smiles on their faces after tasting the quiche made me realise even more how wonderful it is! So here it is! (They both did great in finishing uni, I think the quiche definitely helped keep the energy up! 😊 )

You will need:

A baking tin

Coconut oil for greasing tin

1-2 sweet potatoes (depending on the size of your tin)

1 onion, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 bag of spinach (150g)

¼ tsp sea salt

Black pepper

125ml of almond milk

6 large eggs

1/2 – 3/4 log of goat’s cheese (I like the one with the one with the rind but you can use any)

Procedure:

Preheat your oven to 180 C.

Grease the tin with coconut oil (or cooking spray). Slice the sweet potatoes, and place evenly on the bottom and on the sides of the tin, the potatoes with get smaller in size so make sure there are no gaps. Put in the oven for 20 minutes, place to one side and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Keep the oven turned on.

Heat coconut oil in a frying pan and add the onion and pepper, sauté for roughly 10 minutes until they become soft. Add the spinach a cook a further 3 minutes. Turn off the heat.

Crack the eggs in a bowl and add almond milk, whisk together. Season with a little salt and pepper.

Putting the quiche together. Place your veggies evenly on the sweet potato and pour the egg and milk mixture over the top. Place the slices of cheese around the top and put in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until the egg is set.

Serve up and enjoy!

P.S. This quiche goes great with a salad on the side!
