Asparagus and cheddar quiche with sweet potato crust

Quiche makes such a filling and tasty lunch, but as much as I love pastry, it's better off as an occasional treat! Luckily I have discovered using sweet potatoes as my quiche crust- they make a great base, add amazing flavour, and the whole thing is full of goodness! A sweet potato crust done in this way (thinly sliced sweet potato circles around to cover the dish) doesn't give a crispy crust, but it still holds the whole quiche together and works beautifully. If you want something a little ...

Spanish tortilla

Simple, filling and delicious, perfect for picnics, summery lunches and lunchboxes! I've been really struggling with lunches recently, I haven't really been planning and therefore end up at lunchtime just making a sandwich because I don't have time for anything else. This week I re-joined my old Slimming World group- with my husband's working patterns being so irregular I had really struggled to stick to my old Monday night group and had just stopped going, but I know myself, and without ...

Tex-Mex quiche

Easy to make and full of flavour, this Tex-Mex quiche is a lunchtime winner!   I was talking to my lovely friend Katrin (who blogs over Sugar Free Londoner) the other day about pastry alternatives, and realised that it was ages since I had made my favourite pastry-alternative quiche, using a sweet potato crust. I used to always have one of these in the fridge and I find it so handy for snacks and easy lunches. I do go through phases with my favourite food where I make them all the ...

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. Sometimes I slice the sweet potatoes, and sometimes I grate them and it is lovely both ways. I have explained before that this doesn't give a crisoy crust the edges do get a crunch but the bottom and sides stay fairly soft- it is still however and effective crust for the quiche and adds a difference texture and taste which is lovely! I stuck with a very simple ...

Bacon and mushroom quiche with sweet potato crust

  A sweet potato crust is my favourite way to do quiche at the moment- it's so easy (way easier than making pastry and more healthy!) and it really adds both filling power and flavour to your quiche. When I made this one, I was actually planning to do a chilli courgette quiche, but it turned out I had run out of courgettes, so I just used what I had in the fridge which was mushrooms and bacon! To make the crust I just thinly slice sweet potato with a  sharp knife and layer into a ...

Asparagus and garlic mushroom quiche with a sweet potato crust

Click here to see a step-by-step picture guide of how to make this I'm a big fan of the sweet potato crust on a quiche, I find the completely crustless ones a bit difficult to get through as they are just a bit too squishy, and as much as I love pastry,  I know it is really not a good thing to eat when you are trying to keep your diet as healthy as possible. I have tried a 'hash brown' style sweet potato crust before (Tuna and courgette sweet potato crust quiche), but this time ...

Hash brown crust quiche lorraine

With summer finally here, quiche is such a great lunch option as it's so easy to grab and go- we are likely to have a lot of trips to the beach and if I have a quiche ready in the fridge to take I am much less likely to be tempted by pasties! I've been meaning to try out a hash brown crust on a quiche for ages- I have made lots with a sweet potato crust like this tuna and courgette one and this mushroom and spinach one but it's nice to have a change and this was really tasty.   ...

Tuna and courgette sweet potato crust quiche

I love these sweet potato crust quiches at the moment- for me the whole appeal of quiche used to be the pastry, so a crustless one just doesn't satisfy me! Although the sweet potato doesn't give it a crunchy crust, it give it both filling power, extra depth of flavour and it works really nicely aesthetically too! I first had tuna quiche cooked by my best friend Sharon's Mum on her farm in Devon during university holidays (in fact quite a few of my favourite recipes have come from ...
