Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche

You find cool stuff on facebook sometimes along with a lot of cat pictures (lol).

Although I don’t go to the site very often and I don’t post much myself, I like to stay connected with people, especially the ones I don’t get to see in person very often, like my family back in Japan.

I recently got connected with some of my cousins some of whom I hadn’t seen since they were 7 or 8, and it is absolutely priceless to see pictures of them with their kids (and their kids are getting big!).

Recently a friend of mine who now lives in South Korea was posting this really cool thing (Terry first told me about it) on facebook, and I had to try it.

I made a few changes like adding mushroom to the filling and using Boursin cheese/cream cheese mixture instead of feta cheese, but this turned out to be absolutely delicious!!

Loved the natural sweetness and the beautiful orange color of the sweet potatoes.

This also makes the quiche feel lighter compared to the traditional ones with pastry crust.

This was such a huge hit at our house.

Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche

1. Follow the instructions in this video.

*I added about one cup of baby bella mushroom slices to the the other veggies and cooked with them.
*I used 5 whole eggs instead of 4 eggs and 2 whites and I used about 1/3 cup of heavy cream instead of 1/2 cup of milk.
*I used a mixture of Boursin cheese and cream cheese (about 4:1) instead of feta cheese.

    生地の代わりが野菜のキッシュ、いいですね!
    最近、あまりキッシュを作らなくなってました。
    バターやオイルを使った生地が重く感じて、以前ほど食べたいと思わなくなってたんです。
    でも、野菜なら、軽めのキッシュになりそう。
    綺麗なオレンジのサツマイモで作りたいところだけど、うちのほうではまず見かけないので、普通のサツマイモで作ろうと思います。

    テリーさんと甥っ子くんの写真、すてきですね。
    子供を持って、にぎやかにせわしなく暮らすのも楽しいけれど、夫婦だけで、穏やかにゆったり暮らすのも素晴らしいことだと思ってます。

    Marinさん、

    パイ生地じゃないキッシュ、なかなか新鮮でした。
    日本は確かにこのオレンジ色のポテトを見つけるのはムズカシイかな?
    子供を持つか持たないかは、大きなデシジョンですが、二人で決める、っていうのが一番大切なことだな、なんて思ってます。
