Hey y’all! I wanted to share this recipe for my go-to quiche with you guys. After I shared it in my workout group EVERYONE I’m not exaggerating here, literally everyone in the group wanted this recipe. If they liked it so much, I knew y’all would to, so here I am sharing one of my all time favorite recipes. I make this quiche a lot because I always have the ingredients on hand and I’m guessing you do to!

I eat kale and sweet potatoes together at least a couple of times of week. I love kale because duh, it’s good for you, but it is such a sturdy green. When cooked it still has great texture and bulk and I love that about it. I love the taste of kale too. It tastes really good to me just sauteed in a little evoo, salt, and red pepper flakes….something I can not say for spinach unfortunately.

I typically only eat sweet potatoes because they’re higher in fiber and lower in carbs than white potatoes. And sweet potatoes are another food that I love in simple form, like kale. I love spiced roasted sweet potatoes! Yum!

I used to think quiche was this fancy dish that I could never make, but really it’s just egg pie. I love quiche because you can load it up with just about anything you want. Broccoli and cheese quiche is to die for! So is leek and mushroom. When I wanna splurge I’ll make a chicken cordon bleu version with diced chicken, cubed ham, and grated swiss. Skies the limit when it comes to quiche!
