Recipe of the month:

sweet potato crust quiche!


Quiche is such a perfect summer dish to serve up and it's made even more perfect with this deliciously healthy sweet potato crust!


Kids love the sweetness of it and it is packed full of antioxidants and vitamin A. Get the kids involved by asking them to help mix, grate and push it into the quiche dish! 

Things you'll need 

  • Grater
  • Mixing bowl
  • 9 inch quiche/cake tin - ideally with a smooth edge
  • Clean tea towel
  • Wooden spoon 
  • Chopping board and knife


Ingredients 

  • 400g sweet potato
  • 50g grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg* 
  • Salt and pepper 

*Allergens: egg 


Cooking instructions

(prep - 20 minutes | cook - 40 minutes)

  • Preheat the oven to 180c (170c fan assisted / gas mark 3)
  • Peel and grate the sweet potato over a tea towel 
  • Roll the grated potato into a ball in the tea towel and squeeze as much juice out as you can
  • Pop it in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly 
  • Grease a quiche/cake tin and use your hands to push the mixture into it until there are no gaps (save a small amount to patch up any holes that appear after baking)
  • Bake for 20 minutes
  • While it's baking make your fave filling - we love 100g grated cheese, 100ml cream, 100ml milk and 5 eggs mixed with 3-4 chopped spring onions and 150g spinach 
  • Pour your mix into the baked base (filling any gaps that appeared with your extra sweet pot mix) and pop back in the oven for 30-40 minutes
