Vegan Quiche

quiche

This is what we had for dinner last night!  I got the recipe from here:  http://allrecipes.com/recipe/tofu-quiche-with-broccoli/

I changed it up a bit because I didn’t have vegan parmesan and I also added some sweet peppers.  It was yummy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 vegan pie crust
  • 1 pound of broccoli (chopped)
  • 1 package of firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 medium-sized red onion (chopped)
  • 4 small sweet peppers (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup of plain soy milk
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon of mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon of dried parsley
  • 1/3 cup of nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup of Daiya “cheese”
  • pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Prepare pie crust according to directions and then set aside.  (I just bought a vegan pie crust from our local health food store)
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Steam the broccoli for about 5 minutes and set aside.
  • Heat the oil on another pan and add onions and sweet peppers.  Cook for a few minutes and set aside.
  • Throw the rest of the ingredients in a blender or food processor (tofu, garlic, red pepper flakes, parsley, salt, nutritional yeast, Daiya “cheese”, nutmeg, mustard and soy milk) and blend.
  • In a large bowl, mix the tofu blend, onions, peppers, and broccoli together.
  • Pour the mixture into your prepared pie crust.
  • Bake for 35 minutes
  • Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
