Tofu Vegetable Quiche with Herbed Crust

2 Feb

Look Ma, no eggs! That’s right. It’s another quiche recipe, this one is bigger and more badass than a mini quiche can ever hope to be. I’ve got way more things going on this week than there is time in a day so, I have to make sure my mind doesn’t wander to the kitchen when it should be studying. Solution? Make a massive quiche and eat quiche for dinner all week. Why the heck not? While most young whipper snapper college students are eating pizza, I’m the old lady who’s enjoying a delicious quiche because “it’s kind of like pizza.” And it is, except it’s a lot healthier.

Anyway, here’s a tasty, savory, eggless dish that’s sure to make your life a lot easier and your dinner guests amazed that it you could accomplish a quiche without eggs. Quiche is not only time efficient and delicious, it’s flexible too! Add whatever vegetables you want, or omit the ones you can’t stand. The crust recipe is arranged, but adapted from the Healthy Happy Life blog. My only issue with this recipe is that the crust isn’t as soft as I would like it to be. I used sorghum flour which can be pretty rough stuff once it’s baked, but softens up nicely over time (read: leftovers). Even if you have a gluten allergy, I recommend using other flours (bean or oat will probably be fine).

Mini Tofu Quiche Pies

10 Jan

So this recipe originates from two places. One, is having left over pastry dough from making apple pie and the other is from being very hungry and not having much around the house but a few vegetable odds and ends from previous dinners.

The pie dough from this recipe is from Vegan Yum Yum, created by Lauren Ulm. You can find step by step photos for it here.  I’ve simply doubled it to satisfy the amount of quiche filling. The filling is a inspired by Fat Free Vegan Kitchen‘s mini crustless tofu quiches.

This recipe is very simple to make (especially if you have the pie dough already made) and very delicious too! It makes for a tasty dinner side (or you could eat a few and have a full dinner) and it also serves as a quick savory breakfast! Continue reading
