Savvy Slimming World Quiche Syn Free (with crust!)
A Slimming World quiche doesn’t have to be as tasteless and unsatisfying as possible. Why not try combining the following cheap and savvy ingredients into a tasty tea-time meal that’s syn free. The concept is basically a crust-free quiche made in the style of an omelette, with the addition of cottage cheese and a few extras for flavour.
It’s never going to be as full-bodied as a pastry based quiche but for being syn free I don’t think it’s half bad. Try it out and let me know what you think. Don’t forget to try out my other low or free syn recipes like my slow cooker chili con carne
Slimming World Quiche Ingredients
For the crust:
- 4 sweet potatoes
For the slimming world quiche filling
- 4 eggs
- cooked fresh potato
- onion (a little chopped frozen)
- syn free cooked ham meat (tinned or fresh)
- Optional 30g cheese of choice (You can up the amount if you’re using your HEA)
- 1 tub flavoured cottage cheese of choice (Check it’s a syn free “healthy option”)
- Secret spices: Schwarz “Perfect Shake” Spicy Chips Seasoning, Onion Salt, pepper, chives.
The method for the sweet potato crust
- Heat the oven to 180 degrees C
- Peel the sweet potato and grate. It’s important to grate, rather than slice or mash as the grated sweet potato dries out better in the over to form more of a “crust” texture.
- Cover the bottom of a suitable dish for the quiche with baking parchment.
- Add squirts of Fry Light or another syn free spray to the dish.
- Apply pressure to all of the sweet potato, pressing it firmly into the base and sides. Don’t be shy to add more as it will shrink down as it cooks.
- Allow up to 30 minutes to bake the crust, until it is as firm as possible without burning.
Prepare the syn free filling once the crust is ready.
- Sprinkle a small amount of onion salt (if you have it) over the base as you remove it from the oven.
- Spread the cottage cheese over the base making sure to swirl through some black pepper and salt as you go.
- Add the ham and potato to the mix, along with any extra vegetables you can optionally choose to add.
- In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and a half teaspoon of the Schwarz seasoning. Yes I know that adding a chip seasoning to a quiche sounds odd, but it has the desired effect of lifting the flavour.
- Pour the seasoned egg mix over the top of the cottage cheese.
- Sprinkle the cheese on top, along with the chives.
- Pop back into the oven for 20 minutes or until golden. You want it to have a little spring to the touch when checking if it’s done. If the crust is raised at the edges mind it does not catch; trimming the crust slightly may help this.
Let me know how you get on. We’ve tried this a few times, and although it will never replace the texture of a true crust, it gets close. It’s far tastier than the crustless versions in my opinion, and cheap to make too. Pin this recipe to your Pinterest or Yummly board today to not lose it.
