Love the gorgeous shades of green in this dish!


no crust quiche

1 onion, chopped

3/4 teaspoon salt

25 grams butter

3 eggs

1 cup milk

1/2 cup self-raising flour

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 kumara or sweet potatoes, peeled, cubed and boiled

1 to 2 cups grated sharp cheddar

2 cups finely chopped greens and herbs (I used a mixture of spinach, parsley and chives)

3 to 4 tablespoons of grated parmesan

Heat oven to 220C and butter a 20 cm pie dish.

Put the onion, salt and butter into a small frying pan, cover and set over a gentle heat. After 10 minutes, remove the lid and raise the heat a little. Stir regularly for another 10 minutes until the onion is soft and golden. Set aside to cool.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs and milk with the flour and the garlic. Once the flour is incorporated, add the onion, potatoes, sharp cheddar and greens. Mix gently until everything is well combined and spread out evenly in the prepared dish.

Sprinkle with the grated parmesan and bake for 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
