  • 1 8-oz tub (minus the 2 tbsp used for the crust) vegan Cream cheese, either plain or savoury.

  • How to Make Savoury Sweet Potato Quiche:

    1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
    2. The dough should hold together in a ball, but if it doesn't, add some water.
    3. Place it in a container or wrap it in a shrink-wrap, then refrigerate while you get your filling together.
    4. For the filling: Place all the ingredients together in a food processor and process until you have a smooth filling.
    5. If you aren't using a food processor, chop the herbs first, and then mash the ingredients together into a really fine paste. You don't want a lumpy filling. You might try using a blender even.
    6. In a 9-inch tart pan or a pie plate, lightly greased, place the crust dough and with your fingers pat it out to the sides, climbing up to the edges until you have an evenly patted-out crust.
    7. Scrape the filling into it.
    8. Try to smooth it down as much as possible because this is a thick filling that is not going to settle on its own in the oven.
    9. Bake in a preheated 350-degree C oven for 45-50 minutes or until the filling is nicely set.
    10. Cool for at least 10 minutes before sliding off the tart-pan sleeve.
