  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 3/4 lb sausage
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 2 large leeks white and very light green parts only, sliced thin
  • 1 T water
  • 7 oz fresh baby spinach chopped
  • 7 eggs
  • 1/4 c coconut milk
  • 1/2 t salt
  • black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Peel sweet potato and slice it into very thin rounds – these rounds will form the crust.

  3. Coat your hands in coconut oil and grease the potato slices, then arrange in a 9" pie dish, overlapping, along the bottom and up the sides. Sprinkle with sea salt.

  4. Place crust in the preheated oven for 20-25 mins or until cooked through, then remove from oven and lower the heat to 400 degrees.

  5. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Once hot, crumble in sausage and cook, stirring, to fully brown. Remove with slotted spoon to a plate and set aside.

  6. Turn heat down to med-low and place 1 T oil in skillet. Add sliced leeks and toss to coat, then sprinkle with salt and add the water. Cover skillet and cook 2 minutes, remove lid and stir, then re-cover and cook another 2 minutes until softened.

  7. Add all the spinach, and cover the skillet once again so the spinach wilts, about 3 minutes.

  8. Once spinach has wilted, stir the sausage back in and cook 1 more minute, stirring occasionally, then remove from heat and set aside.

  9. In a large measuring cup or mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, salt and pepper.

  10. Place all the sausage mixture into the pre-baked crust, then pour egg mixture over the top. Bake in the preheated oven (now 400 degrees) for about 25 minutes or until center is set and puffing up. Remove from oven and allow to sit at least 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.

  11. Substitute: bacon/onion/mushroom.
