Sweet Potato and Spinach Pie

This is not my recipe, my girlfriend passed it on and it truly is a winner!  This is in my mind the best savory dish to bring to a party or even cut  into small squares and serve as finger food.  It’s very moist and full of flavour….and good for you!!  (The recipe’s still in “oz”…the way they used to do it in New Zealand)


  • 3 eggs
  • 6 +1/3 oz all-purpose flour
  • 7 oz sweet potato
  • 3.5 oz fresh spinach, cleaned
  • 3 oz hard cheese
  • 1/2 cup (minus 1 Tbsp) milk
  • 1/2 cup (minus 1 Tbsp) olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder


  • Peel the sweet potato and grate it coarsely.
  • Chop the spinach leaves coarsely.
  • Grate the cheese thinly.
  • In a bowl, mix together the eggs and flour.
  • Add the oil first and mix, then add the milk.
  • Add the vegetables and cheese and mix.
  • Then add a pinch of salt, coriander powder and baking powder.
  • Pour the batter in a rectangular greased cake pan — my mold measures 8″ x 3″ — and cook in the oven at 250C  for 50 mns.
  • Let the cake cool down before unmolding.
