I Love it When Paleo Cooking is Easy

I haven’t written about food for a while, but My Lord Doctor King is on a ‘lifestyle change’ (we don’t say diet) and has already dropped 14 lbs so I am cooking better again and using the paleo technique. Trying to find things that everyone loves can be difficult because Miss Gremlin isn’t a huge fan of vegies, she likes potatoes and sweet potatoes but not so many greens, although I’m working on her 🙂

Yesterday, feeling lazy, I went to pinterest to find something I could do without needing to leave the house, you know, with the ingredients I had here. We all know how hard that is, but I found something and it looked yummy and easy! My two favourite things.

Baked sweet potato spinach quiche. Yes real men eat quiche because they know not to complain! I found the recipe from this fine blog and here’s how mine turned out.

Firstly I lined the pyrex pie dish with thinly slices sweet potatoes and baked in oven for 15 mins on 400f.

While that was happening I sauteed onions and garlic and spinach, to the recipe I added mushrooms and ham because, my God, are we ever gonna finish eating the Christmas ham?

After they were nicely browned, I added the mix to the eggs and cheese and put it into the pie ‘crust’.

15 - 6

Reducing the heat to 375, I baked it for 40 minutes until the top was golden brown.

15 - 7

yes I did move the spinach out of one section for my little girl 🙂

 

Super easy, incredibly yummy and a clever idea for those not eating pie crust!

I served it with shoestring sweet potato ( I had a little left over) and potato fries and steamed broccoli. They liked it!

Even Miss Gremlin.

  1. I can recommend being a full time carer for weight loss. I’ve dropped 7kg since I started this experience.

    Fahrenheit .. do people still use that old system? lol. I couldn’t resist.

    Nice dish btw. I think I’ll try that with normal pots.

  2. That looks seriously good. Kevin eats quiche too, so you are correct; real men do eat quiche! My boys aren’t too convinced, however. I’m working on it. 😉 I love that you used sweet potatoes instead of crust. I’m trying this. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This recipe looks scrumptious! I can hardly wait to fix it for my family. I know commenting on the beauty of a blog is commonplace, but I really like your blog and find it inspiring. If you find me here for a while, I’m not stalking you I swear :0) I’m just really enjoying your blog! Take care, Kelli M. Riebesehl
