    we have been invited to an Easter egg hunt and “kind of dinner” by a relative.
    It is complicated.
    Some are vegan. Some are vegetarian. Some are meat eaters.
    The host put in her invitation she is preparing sort of minimum food, but let her know what you are bringing. Hint hint hint.
    The deal is bring food for your family and hopefully some things to share.
    I think.
    Again, confusion.
    Does anyone happen to make something truly yummy like a quiche that might be vegetarian? These vegetarian relatives will eat eggs and cheese.
    Anything that is outstanding?
    Any favorite on line recipe sites?
    Food gatherings at family events have gotten confusing to say the least.
    Thank you.

    Can you bring a dessert? Like lemon tarts? Just fill frozen pastry shells with lemon pudding, and drop a blueberry or two on top with a little shot of whipped cream.

    Ingredients
    • 2 sweet potatoes medium size orange, peeled, finely sliced
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 garlic clove finely chopped
    • 1 large brown onion finely chopped
    • 14 oz frozen blanched whole leaves spinach(400 g)
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper optional
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    QUICHE EGG BATTER
    • 4 eggs
    • 3/4 cup coconut milk or almond milk or milk of your choice (200 ml)
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/4 cup grated cheese edam, cheddar, feta
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 360 F (180 C).

    2. Grease a 9.5 inches (24 cm) round quiche ceramic dish with butter or coconut oil. I used this kind of Round Quiche Dish, 9.5 by 1.5-Inch, border[​IMG]. Set aside.
    3. In a frying pan, under medium heat warm the olive oil.

    4. Add garlic and onion. Fry until fragrant and golden brown. Stir often to avoid the spices to burn.

    5. Add the frozen spinach cover and reduce to low heat. Cook until the spinach are cooked through, soft and tender - about 15 minutes. Adjust with salt and pepper regarding taste.
    6. Meanwhile peel the sweet potatoes then use a mandoline Vegetable Slicer[​IMG] to finely slice the sweet potatoes.
    7. Arrange the slices on the pan making sure that you cover all the bottom leaving no empty space. For the border, cut in half the sweet potatoes slices to create a 'flat' bottom it will hold better and create a beautiful crust border.

    8. Prebake the sweet potato crust at 180C for 15 minutes. This is optional, you can also add the spinach and egg filling directly and bake your quiche - make sure you cover the dish with a piece of foil to ensure the quiche is cooking at the same speed. I prefer to prebake the crust to avoid foil - up to you.

    9. Spread the cooked spinach all over the pre baked sweet potatoes crust. Set aside.

    10. In a medium mixing bowl beat the eggs, almond milk and nutmeg. Adjust with salt and pepper if desired,.

    11. Pour the egg mixture onto the quiche..
    12. Add an handful of grated cheese on the top of the quiche, if desired. If paleo, sprinkle almond meal on top instead of cheese, it give a delicious crisp on top.

    13. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are soft and the cheese is grilled.

    14. Serve immediately.
    Recipe Notes
    Pan: Don't use a loose bottom pan or the egg mixture will run away from the dish.

    Storage: Store well in the fridge for up to 4 days. Simply leave the quiche in the pan and wrap with plastic film to avoid the quiche to dry out. Remove in the microwave or hot oven until hot.

    Dairy free option: Replace cheese by 2 tablespoons of almond meal. Sprinkle on top and bake until crispy

    I'm not a vegetarian but I love mushroom ravioli, eggplant parmesan, and cheese enchiladas. You can buy a bag of frozen ravioli for $5 and it's very simple to prepare. It actually tastes better without the pasta sauce.
