Cut the sweet potatoes into 2 x 2 cm blocks and mix with some oil, pepper and salt. Roast them for 20 minutes al dente in an oven at 200 ° C. Then cut the cabbage, onion and garlic into small pieces and fry in butter in a frying pan. Then also add the sweet potatoes and fry them briefly.

Mix the quark with a whisk, add the eggs and mix until smooth. Mix in the still warm vegetables and put this in the puff pastry-lined cake tin. Cut the tomatoes in half, push them into the cake and sprinkle with the grated cheese. Bake the cake for 30 minutes in an oven at 180 ° C. Let the tin cool down a little before removing it.
