I love forgiving recipes.
I mean, I love recipes that let you throw in whatever you have and still turn out wonderful. They don’t get huffy and decide to taste “off”. They’re yummy and they understand that hey, you’re just trying to get through today and you’re doing the best you can.
A quiche is one of those recipes.
You can throw in any vegetables that are laying hanging out in the fridge. Any cheeses. And it looks incredible because hey you’re fancy and you made a quiche.
Does anybody else just feel like they’re channeling their inner Julia Child when they make a quiche? I feel like I need an apron and some french press coffee and a bowl of fresh fruit to serve with it.
I have to tell you the secret to a killer quiche. No matter what you’re using. Are you ready?
Saute the vegetables first.
I know. It takes extra time. But I promise you it’s a game changer. And guess what? You can do it while the sweet potato crust cooks.
The sweet potato rounds shrink a little when you bake them, so be sure they’re overlapping. For evenly sliced pieces, a mandoline or food processor with a slicer works great. If all else fails, a careful hand with a knife works, too.
The crust takes 5 minutes to prep, then bakes for 15 minutes (while you saute the vegetables and prep the other ingredients). You can give this quiche 20 minutes of your time. Then, you throw it in the oven and you can go back to bed. Or lay on the couch. Or enjoy a nice, warm cup of coffee to help you function. You do you, okay?
