This pastry-free quiche is ideal for those watching their weight, or wanting to avoid starchy pastry, or for those who are coeliac and need to avoid gluten out of necessity.

It’s delicious served warm with a side of roasted mixed vegetables in the winter time; it’s tasty when served cold with a salad, and this pastry-free quiche also goes down great when scoffed on the hoof if you just need a quick bite of something wholesome and healthy.  The recipe is versatile too; I sometimes add sliced onion instead of leeks, or other vegetables depending on what’s in the fridge.

Ingredients –

4 slices of lean bacon (all fat removed) and chopped

1 medium sweet potato – peeled and chopped

2 leeks sliced

black pepper

400g fat free cottage cheese

4 eggs

112g grated cheddar cheese

Frylight or Pam spray

Method –

Preheat oven to 180C or 350F

Spray a frying pan over a medium high heat with some Frylight or Pam spray

Add the bacon and fry until golden

Add the leeks and sweet potato and a sprinkling of black pepper

Cook until softened (approx 5 mins)

Transfer mixture to a quiche dish, pre-sprayed with Frylight or Pam spray and spread out evenly

Add the eggs and cottage cheese to a blender

Blend until smooth and pour over the mixture in quiche dish

Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top

Place in the oven and bake until mixture is set and golden on top – approx 35-40 mins

Allow to cool slightly in dish and then slice and serve
