SERVES

Serves 6

Ingredients

  • Butter, for greasing
  • 2 large, sweet potatoes (750g)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons smoked paprika
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 35g gluten free plain flour
  • 2 medium free-range eggs, separated and lightly whisked

For the filling

  • 3 medium free-range eggs
  • 150ml double cream
  • 30ml whole milk
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Small bunch of chives, finely chopped
  • 125g feta cheese
  • 100g Cavolo Nero, stems removed and roughly chopped

Method

1
Preheat the oven to 180ºC / 160ºC fan / Gas mark 4. Butter a 24cm round oven dish generously.
2
Grate the sweet potatoes using a box grater and place into a colander. Sprinkle over a ½ teaspoon of salt and leave to sit for 10-15 minutes, before using a clean tea towel to squeeze out as much liquid as you can.
3
Put the potatoes into a bowl and add the smoked paprika and season well. Add in the flour and 1 of the whisked eggs and mix really well to combine.
4
Tip the potato mix into your prepared oven dish and press into the base and sides to make a crust, trying hard to plug any gaps. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden.
5
Remove the crust from the oven and brush with the second whisked egg. Place back into the oven for a few minutes to set.
6
To make the filling, add the eggs, double cream and milk to a jug and whisk well to combine. Season well, then sprinkle in the chives. Pour the mixture into the sweet potato crust and crumble over the feta cheese.
7
Nestle the Cavolo Nero in amongst the feta and place the uncooked quiche onto the middle shelf of your oven. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the centre has just a slight hint of a jiggle.
8
Allow to rest and set up for 10 minutes before eating.
