Swiss Chard Quiche & Sweet Potato Hash

In some of our final crop share boxes, we'd been receiving Swiss Chard. In one of the newsletters, there was a recipe for Swiss Chard Quiche Pie. I wasn't really sure an egg pie was going to be good, but thought I'd give it a try. We halved the recipe and quickly became addicted! We visited the farm and picked up some more Swiss Chard just so we could make this again. It's seriously some good stuff!

Here's the recipe:

Swiss Chard Quiche Pie

1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons oil
1 bunch Swiss Chard
6 eggs
1 cup shredded cheese
1 teaspoon salt
2 pie crusts

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Brown onion and garlic in oil. Trim and chop chard, add to pan, and cook down until wilted. Beat eggs in a bowl; mix in cheese, salt, and chard mixture. Pour into pie crusts; bake until knife inserted into center comes out clean, 30-40 minutes. Makes 2 pies.

Here's a pic of the Swiss Chard and onion mixture:

Here's the final product:

I told you there would be another hash dish! This one was super easy from the Students Go Vegan cookbook. Basically you cook a diced sweet potato and then saute that with some onions, peppers and veggie burgers. It's awesome and I plan to make it again.
