Sweet Potato Crustless Quiche

Did someone say quiche? And sweet potatoes? You had us at quiche. Well, and sweet potatoes. 🙂  This recipe is insanely delish, and it’s lightened up by using low-fat milk and low-fat ricotta and leaving off the crust (and trust us, this is so good, you won’t miss the crust– not even one bit!).  This is one of the many scrumptious recipes found in our friend and colleague, Manuel Villacorta’s awesome new book book, Whole Body Reboot: The Peruvian Superfoods Diet to Detoxify, Energize, and Supercharge Fat Loss.
