QUICK AND EASY QUICHE RECIPE FOR THE KIDS TO MAKE WITH MUM
Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche
2 medium sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
3/4 onion, chopped
1 clove of minced garlic or about ½-1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 big handfuls of chopped kale
1 1/2 cup finely chopped broccoli florets
7 eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons almond milk (we always use almond milk but water or any milk will also work, whatever you prefer)
1/4 cup sharp cheddar
Salt & pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Slice sweet potatoes using either a mandoline or a knife. Note: no need to peel sweet potatoes! There are nutrients in the skin and we’re all about making prep easier and faster!
- Spray a pie dish with olive oil spray. Arrange the sweet potato slices in the dish, starting with the bottom of the dish first, and then the sides.
- Once you’ve arranged your “crust”, spray with olive oil spray, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake for 15 minutes (we do three layers of thinly sliced sweet potato).
- Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Warm the olive oil and then add the garlic (if using minced garlic) and cook until fragrant (about 45-60 seconds). Don’t brown or burn the garlic. Add the chopped broccoli and kale and sauté. If using garlic powder, add it as you sauté the veggies.
- Whisk eggs in a separate bowl and add almond milk or liquid of choice.
- Arrange sautéed veggies in an even layer on the sweet potato crust. Then pour the whisked eggs over the veggies. Season with salt and pepper.
- Add shredded cheese on top.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the eggs are set. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
