- 250 g sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 2cm pieces
- olive oil flavored cooking spray
- 4 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 2 cups Baby Spinach
- 3 sheets phyllo pastry
- 210 g red salmon, drained, skin and bones removed
- 1⁄2 cup reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled
- 4 eggs
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- dressed salad leaves, to serve
- Preheat oven to 220°C Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place sweet potato, in a single layer, on tray. Spray with oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes or until tender and golden.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spray with oil. Add onions, garlic and spinach. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Remove from heat.
- Reduce oven to 180°C Spray a 20cm (base) round springform pan with oil. Spray 1 pastry sheet with oil and fold in half crossways. Place pastry sheet in pan to line base and sides. Repeat with remaining pastry (see note).
- Spoon sweet potato over pastry base. Spoon over spinach mixture. Place salmon in a bowl and flake with a fork. Spoon salmon and feta over spinach mixture. Whisk eggs, milk and salt and pepper in a jug. Pour over filling.
- Bake quiche for 40 minutes or until set. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Release sides of pan. Slice quiche and serve with salad.
- Note: Lining with filo pastry: Working quickly, spray 1 sheet with oil (cover remaining sheets with damp tea towel). Fold in half to form a rectangle. Place in pan. Repeat with remaining sheets, layering crossways to completely cover side of pan.
This is great. I've now made it twice. I'm gluten-free, so I made it without the crust. All I did differently was omit the filo dough, put it in a pie plate instead of a spring form pan, and then make sure to grease the pie plate well. We own a flock of chickens and are always looking for good ways to use the eggs! Thanks for sharing. Yum.
Oh my, this is definitely a keeper! I love the rich flavor that roasting brings out in the sweet potatoes--it was so nice to get a nice bite of that between bites of creamy feta! I did use full fat feta, the sundried tomato and basil version. Yum! I used two real eggs and Egg Beaters for the rest, and though that usually creates a rubbery texture I didn't notice one. I did have some trouble with the egg mixture leaking from my springform, so next time I will probably use a pie plate and may skip the phyllo and just line the plate with sweet potato slices. Thanks so much for posting--this is so much more fun than salmon patties or casserole! Made for Zaar Tag 2008.
