we have mentioned before how much we love quiches. and already made a kale veggie quiche that was very tasty. we consider these recipes of ours as crustless quiches because that is what we grew up with, but a few of you have mentioned it could be a frittatas. so call it what you may, they are healthy, quick meals! and even great for a post workout meal.
this time around we wanted to make a quiche that had all the ingredients of our post-workout eats lately. that way we could enjoy it right after our workouts.
so we got to thinking ok key ingredients are dark leafy greens, sweet potato, and eggs. what could we make with these? um
3 ingredient quiche!
doesn’t get much easier then that. it is so easy to make too!
we made this quiche crustless because we do not really like crusts. we know we know, sometimes the crust is the best part. but we really just like the filling. so that is what we focused on.
and wanted it to be very simple. and that is what we did with this recipe. it is easy. it is healthy. it is naturally gluten free made from wholesome ingredients.
pure2raw recipe: sweet potato spinach quiche (gluten free, grain free, low sugar, dairy free, soy free)
makes one 8-9 inch pie
- 3 eggs, local or organic
- 1 box of frozen spinach, defrosted and drained
- 1/2 -3/4 cup mashed sweet potato
- optional: spices – we did some basil, parsley, about 1/2 teaspoon of each or so
place all ingredients into a bowl and stir.
pour quiche batter into a pie dish (we did not oil ours but you can if you would like). place quiche into a preheated 350 degree oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes.
we feel this is great post workout because you have a balance of protein, alkalinity, vitamins, minerals, and a good carb source to fuel your muscles. now you do not have to always eat this for post workout, really can be enjoyed anytime. just a post workout meal we have enjoyed before.
after we workout we just want a pure wholesome foods, which normally consists of eggs, some type of green and a little sweet potato. we usually just throw these ingredients into a bowl and enjoy, so this time we wanted to try something different.
hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we did.
