Sun-Dried Tomato & Olive Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust


This gluten-free quiche is bright and briny thanks to the mix of sun-dried tomatoes and olives. The manchego cheese adds a rich and nutty flavor. It's great for brunch, breakfast or dinner. Top with jarred salsa or bruschetta or a drizzle of hot sauce to counter the sweetness of the potatoes. If you have one, use a mandoline to slice the sweet potatoes into equal-size slices.

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and thinly sliced (about 9 ounces)

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ cup chopped onion

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried

  • ½ cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)

  • ¼ cup sliced Kalamata olives

  • 4 large eggs

  • 2 large egg whites

  • cup shredded manchego cheese

  • ½ cup low-fat milk

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a glass pie pan with cooking spray.

  2. Place sweet potato slices in a microwave-safe baking dish. Add 2 tablespoons water. Cover with plastic wrap. Make 2 or 3 slits in the plastic to vent steam. Microwave on High until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain. When cool enough to handle, arrange the slices across the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pie pan, overlapping as necessary to cover. Sprinkle the sweet potatoes with 1/4 teaspoon salt.

  3. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and oregano; cook, stirring, until starting to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in sun-dried tomatoes and olives. Spread evenly over the sweet potato crust.

  4. Whisk eggs and egg whites together in a medium bowl. Add cheese, milk, pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; whisk until well combined. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables in the pie pan. Bake until set, about 35 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting into wedges.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
