Wow! It’s been 2 whole months since a post from me. I know. That’s pretty bad but when inspiration doesn’t hit it really doesn’t hit. Not that I haven’t been creating and cooking, it’s more like….um…okay….it’s laziness….
I haven’t been writing things down as I do them or taking photos of what I’m doing while I’m doing them.
Part of this here personal laziness stems from having a new job. Most of my creativity is used up between the hours of 7am and 2pm where I’m in someone else’s kitchen baking away so by the time I finish work and get home I don’t have an awful lot of creativity left.
I did however manage to document this recipe (only because I had a couple of days off)
Zucchini and Sweet Potato Quiche.
There they were…all green and bright sitting just so on top of each other. How was I supposed to walk by them. In the shopping trolley they went. Next, the sweet potato. We love sweet potato everything in our home.
Then I thought…
Why not bring these two fantastic veggies together and make one fantastic meal…
So I did.
To make it even more fantastic I added some sheep’s milk feta that we bought home with us from a weekend away at Mudgee in central west New South Wales. What a winning combination.
Zucchini and Sweet Potato Quiche
Shortcrust pastry pie case – blind baked- (recipe here)
4 large zucchini – coarsely grated
1 medium sweet potato – coarsely grated
2 spring onions – thinly sliced
6 free range eggs
salt, pepper – to taste
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
80 – 100g Feta cheese
Squeeze out as much moisture as you can from the zucchini and sweet potato. Put in a large bowl and add the spring onion.
In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, cream,salt, pepper and curry powder. Pour this over the veggies, give it a really good stir then pour the whole lot into the pre-baked pastry case.
Crumble the cheese over the top and bake in a pre-heated 170oC oven for about 55-60 minutes or until the middle is no longer wobbly.
Let it cool for about 10 minutes before you slice it up and serve.
Here’s hoping it won’t be another 2 months before I manage another post.
