Instead of using normal pastry for a crust, I used sweet potatoes which tastes divine, is way healthier and makes this dish gluten-free if you use tamari instead of soy sauce.

Skinny Sweet Potato Vegan Quiche

Prep Time20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 6 small sweet potatoes
  • 1 yellow pepper chopped
  • 1/2 an onion chopped
  • 4 spring onions/scallions chopped with the white and green parts separate
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed and chopped
  • 3 mushrooms chopped
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • A large handful fresh basil leaves
  • 1 package firm tofu
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoons turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari if gluten-free
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2/3 cup soy or almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot
  • 2 tablespoon coconut or olive oil


  • Peel sweet potatoes and slice thinly with a food processor or knife.
  • Lay potato slices out in pie dish in a crust-like fashion, coated with tablespoon coconut oil, and bake on 400 degrees fahrenheit for 15 minutes. (After crust has baked, reduce oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.)
  • Now heat the rest of oil in a frying pan and cook the onion, white part of the scallions and the garlic until they are soft.
  • Add in the pepper and mushrooms and saute for about 10 minutes.
  • After this, add in the spinach, kale, basil and green parts of the scallions. You may have to do this a little at a time as they will have to wilt down a bit to fit in the pan.
  • As they wilt, turn the heat down to its lowest setting and start with the tofu mixture.
  • For this you will add to a food processor or blender the tofu, mustard, turmeric, soy sauce, nutritional yeast, milk, arrowroot and oil. Blend until you have a smooth consistency.
  • Pout the tofu mixture into the greens and stir until everything is combined.
  • Now pour this into the sweet potatoe crust and bake in the pre-heated oven for 40 -50 minutes, depending on how deep or shallow your dish is.
  • Just check it after 35 minutes to make sure it’s not too brown.
  • Tastes best a little warm


Enjoy with a salad for breakfast, lunch or dinner! If you want to eat it hot, just pop it back in the oven to re-heat.
