we are still enjoying our take on quiche, frittata, whatever you would like to call it.
we tend to have many names for recipes. you make something that is similar to something, but what do you call it? do you still call it what it is supposed to be, even though it is nothing like it? do you get what we mean?
that is a question we have asked ourselves often in terms of raw foods. the recipe is for a cookie, but a different type of cookie. or it looks like cheesecake but not cheesecake. you know. anyone else ponder these thoughts?
we are calling our next 3 ingredient recipe – PIE
similar to our lentil pie (which is vegan), but this time kept the recipe simple – kale sweet potato pie
well today we have another recipe that we just love either for post workout or as a snack. it is full of greens, protein, fiber, beta-carotene. instead of just hand stirring the recipe like we have done in our previous two recipes – kale artichoke quiche and 3 ingredient quiche , we decided to blend it up.
pure2raw recipe: kale sweet potato pie
prep time: 5 minutes
bake time: preheat oven to 350 and bake quiche for about 30 minutes
- 1 cup egg whites
- 1 sweet potato (medium-large), cooked
- 4 cups chopped kale, fresh
once your sweet potato is soft, place all ingredients into a blender and blend till combined.
add your favorite seasonings of choice. about 2 -3 tsp of a mix of spices and herbs.
pour the blended kale quiche into a 8 or 9 in pie dish (lightly oiled) and bake for 25-30 minutes at 350.
a simple pie that is naturally gluten free, grain free, and dairy free.
and we got a gluten free grain free almond crust for those wanting a crust.
now in terms of serving size. to be honest we hate to put this on recipes, because we do not really look at food as servings. because there have been recipes that we make, and it is says feeds 4, but we easily finish it off between the two (sometimes 3 if Gary is having some). everyone’s meal servings will be different, which is the way it should be. we should all be trusting our own bodies to tell us when we have had enough.
we enjoy food till we feel full and satisfied, of course being careful of not over eating. which is something we still have to be aware of from time to time. as we just love food! but for this kale sweet potato pie, we shared it. but you could get away with feeding more people as a side dish.
and this recipe happens to be green, so just in time for St Patty’s Day.
Twins Question: what are your thoughts on serving size? do you pay attention to them? do you just eat till your are full? do you find it hard sticking to serving sizes?
