Asparagus and bacon quiche with sweet potato & oat crust

  My method of cooking is generally like one long episode of Ready Steady Cook- I tend to shop randomly around special offers, and then every day I make up our meals based on what I have in the cupboards/fridge. Today I had a picnic lunch planned with some friends and the kids- I wanted to make a quiche to bring, but when I checked up on my supplies I realised I only had 1 sweet potato left (this is my usual quiche crust, click here to see), and I had completely run out of cheese, ...

Popeye quiche

I go back time and time again to the sweet-potato crust quiche, as it is just such a brilliant alternative to pastry.

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. I recently saw a recipe online which involved slicing a sweet potato with a mandolin (which I don't have) to create a quiche crust, so I decided to have a go at grating it (as I do have a grater!) and ...
