This Southwestern Quiche is a must for an upcoming weekend brunch this summer. You will love its naturally gluten-free crust, made out of Cascadian Farm's organic fire roasted sweet potatoes and its Southwest flavors like jalapeño, cumin, mango, and cilantro. Then, it's topped with Greek yogurt, peach guacamole, and salsa! YUMMATOLA.
There's not much I like more than peach guac, Mexican food, beautiful organic greens, fresh peonies, and my mom. (*not in any specific order). I mean seriously, how gorgeous is this chard?!?! That pink! That green!
So what does this have to do with my mom? Welllllllllll, besides it being Mother's Day weekend soon (and this being a perfect brunch recipe), it's the first time in over 10 years that she and I have lived in the same city! She and my dad just moved back to Colorado and into their new house. Which means... she got to come over and eat this delicious quiche with me. And then we went on a sunny walk around the lake near my house. The whole thing was heavenly!
I love that I get to share more of my blog work (ehem... food) and life with her.
Look at that perfectly crispy orange crust!
It's been on my to-do list forever to make a potato crust for quiche.
Eggs + Potatoes.
They just go together so well, don't you think?
I superfood-i-fied things by using sweet potatoes instead of white ones. And I like making up words :)
Cascadian Farm's organic fire roasted sweet potatoes work great. I cook them per the stovetop instructions on the bag and then use a potato masher and press them into the pie dish evenly. Then I add a layer of cheese and bake that on for 5 minutes to provide a nice seal so that the eggs don't seep into the sweet potato crust.
Genius, I know.
These frozen organic sweet potatoes are also great in my Sweet Potato & Quinoa chili, or as a side dish on their own with ketchup.
But the first thing you'll want to do with them is make this quiche.
Sooooooooooo dang good!
