Super Simple Summer Quiche and a Review

Now on to the good stuff. I’ve come across several food bloggers talking about Kodiak Cakes. Heard of those? Recently, Courtney from Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life posted that she had found them at Target and they were wonderful. This morning Madelyn woke up wanting waffles, so we decided to give these a try. There are no preservatives, they’re all natural and made with 100% whole grains. The nutritional stats don’t look too shabby either. They were super easy, too……whipped up and out of the waffle iron in about 5 minutes flat.
I have a belgian waffle maker and 1 cup of mix with 1 cup of cold water made 3 small belgian waffles. Madelyn and I both really liked these waffles. They have a nice texture and a sweet (but not too sweet) buttery flavor.
And now for a new recipe. This is one of my all time favorite quiches. It is very different from your typical quiche because instead of bacon or ham, we have sweet potatoes. Click on the link to check out the amazing nutritional stats of sweet potatoes. Alexis (one of the two picky daughters) really likes this quiche, but feels that it has too much spinach. If spinach really isn’t your thing; you may want to consider reducing the amount you use. Try this almond crust for the quiche. It is a fabulous combo.
- 3 eggs
- 1 box of frozen spinach defrosted and drained
- 3/4 cup mashed sweet potato canned or fresh
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 1/2 tsp dried parsley leaves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour quiche mixture into almond crust, store bought crust or if crustless, into a 9 inch pie plate sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake quiche for 25-30 minutes.
Don't pass on the almond crust. It pairs perfectly with this quiche.
Okay, I have to skedaddle. We have a busy day over here. I have this workout to get done and the kiddos have gymnastics tonight.
