Method: 

Preheat oven to 375°F. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add onions and mushrooms along with a pinch of salt. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring often, until mushrooms have released most of their liquid. Add spinach and garlic and cook 3 minutes longer. Set aside.

Mash tofu and place it in the bowl of a food processor along with soy or almond milk and tahini. Puree until smooth. Add salt, pepper, curry powder, onion powder and garlic powder, and add tamari to taste. Add tofu mixture to sautéed vegetables, stirring to combine well. Adjust seasonings to taste and spoon into pie shell. Arrange bell pepper slices decoratively on top and bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until pastry and the top of the pie are golden brown. Let quiche cool several minutes before slicing.
