Sweet potato quiche

Oh the internet, such an inspiring place! While looking for a recipe to make a healthy quiche, I came across a quiche with a sweet potato crust. Intriguing!

With a few adjustments, this was made into a tasty and healthy low FODMAP and gluten-free sweet potato quiche!

The sweet potato has gained a lot of popularity over the last few years. A lot of people prefer it over a regular potato (for example Paleo diet).
And I must say (other than the flavor) I’m not entirely sure why!

Nutritional Value Of Sweet Potatoes

If I compare the sweet potato to a regular potato in the nutrition database, there is no massive difference between the two. Except for vitamin A and C levels, which are massively higher in sweet potatoes. But vitamin A and C deficiency is not very common.
Also, the mono and disaccharides (also known as sugar) in sweet potato is about 5g higher per 100g of potato. That is quite a difference!

So for nutritional value compared to a regular potato, you do not have to change to a sweet potato.
Based on flavor on the other hand, all the more!

In this recipe the combination of the sweet flavor of the potatoes with the savory feta cheese is delicious! And a regular potato would never be able to give the quiche its unique flavor.

In recent years, I have made this recipe multiple times for potluck dinners and many evenings at home. It’s great for a potluck because the sweet potato quiche is easy to prepare and take with you. Also, it’s very tasty either warm or cold.

So no matter where your potluck is (the park, beach or house party) the quiche is always a good idea!

What do you think of sweet potatoes and the quiche? Let me know!

  • Put the baking tray with the potatoes in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees celsius.
  • In the meantime, start on the filling. Slice the red paprika into small cubes. Heat a skillet over medium heat, and add the red paprika and the spinach. Once the spinach has wilted, transfer the mixture into a bowl to cool.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the 6 eggs, 150 ml of milk and the salt and pepper to taste. Add about half of the feta and gently mix this together.
  • Take the sweet potatoes out of the oven and add the spinach-paprika mixture. Spread evenly. Pour the egg-milk mixture on top and sprinkle with the remaining feta.

  • Take the baked quiche from the oven and let it cool for about 5 minutes. Slice the quiche into 4 pieces, and enjoy!
