Asparagus and bacon quiche with sweet potato & oat crust

Mushroom and spinach quiche with a sweet potato crust
One of the things that I really miss on my healthy-eating journey is pastry. I've always loved it and I still do! It's still an occasional treat, but if I'm going to let myself have it it needs to be wrapped around a pasty or a steak pie and I'm happy to find an alternative for quiche.
