Now, does this mean that I don’t enjoy a regular quiche Lorraine? Absolutely not. I don’t live the label life! I really enjoy all foods from all categories. However, I understand that a lot of people do like labels, so for those who find my recipes, I hope they inspire you to try something new and be more fluid with how you eat 🙂

No one way is the best way 😉 That’s my motto!

Paleo Sweet Potato Pie Crust Ingredients

Sweet Potato: the star of the show once again! I just love sweet potatoes, don’t you? I really feel that Japanese sweet potatoes add such a lovely flavor to the overall Paleo Quiche Lorraine. It’s an interesting texture, definitely a good one, and just really complements every ingredients’ element!

Ground Flax Seed: this will help to bind the sweet potato together. Yes, this paleo sweet potato pie crust is completely vegan as well! However, if you don’t have ground flax or choose to not use it, using eggs is a perfectly fine substitution!

Coconut Flour: I would highly recommend sticking with coconut flour on this one just because sweet potato has a lot of moisture, and I feel like coconut flour does such a good job at absorbing the moisture! Nourished Kitchen I feel does the best explanation as to why coconut flour is so absorbent and its tricky substitutions. Plus, using coconut flour allows this Paleo Quiche Lorraine to be completely nut free!

Sea Salt: just for extra flavor 🙂 sea salt is the best, isn’t it?

Paleo Quiche Lorraine Ingredients

Eggs: for me, I like to support my local farmer, so Jared and I purchase our eggs from our weekend farmer’s market, but if that’s not available to you, not to worry. There are great organic and free-range options at every grocery store these days. For me, I found food freedom in switching my perspective of what the food is doing for me to what can I do for the food (that sounds so weird haha!).

Basically, what I mean by that is that I enjoy supporting companies and farms that feel good. I know they treat their animals well and that they’re good people. However, if that’s not available to you, you’re not a bad person. Health, to me, is what works for you. For me, I love thinking about health as a

Veggies: now for this paleo quiche, I decided to go with asparagus, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes, all sautéed in some garlic! It was amazing. There’s something about an asparagus quiche that just tastes so good! Reminds me of all of the fun spring produce!

Parsley: one of my favorite herbs, I used Italian parsley for this paleo asparagus quiche, and it came out so well! Just mixed a little into the beaten eggs and it really boosted the flavor!

Garlic: this is one of my favorite ingredients because the flavor is just so satisfying! If you’re not a fan of garlic, feel free to use an onion in its place! Your Paleo Quiche Lorraine will still turn out amazing 🙂

Oh and did you notice? This is a dairy free quiche so no milk or cheese in here!

How to prepare the Paleo Quiche crust

This Paleo sweet potato pie crust may seem rather complicated, but it’s actually easier than a regular pie crust! Honestly, this is my favorite pie crust to make.

It’s not as flaky as a normal pie crust, but definitely still holds together quite well and just really complements the flavors of the Paleo Quiche Lorraine. You could really use this crust on any recipe, dessert included like this paleo pecan pie!

To prepare this Paleo quiche crust, simply blend the cooked and mashed sweet potato in a food processor (my favorite kitchen tool!).

Once the sweet potato is pureed, add in the remaining ingredients and blend again!

Then you take the rather sticky and large dough ball (don’t worry, it’s going to be really sticky and it should be!) and press the dough ball into the middle of the pie dish.

Work your way up the sides of the pie dish (I didn’t allow mine to flow over the edges but you totally can! Just make sure you cover the edges when you bake the full quiche so they don’t burn!). Then you place your paleo quiche crust into the oven and there ya go!
