Cyndi wrote in requesting a recipe for a vegan quiche. This recipe features tofu, soy or almond milk and tahini for a smooth texture, and a mix of veggies for flavor and color.
Ingredients: 
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped baby spinach leaves, packed
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 (14-ounce) package firm or extra firm tofu, pressed to remove as much liquid as possible
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened soy or almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pre-packaged vegan whole wheat pie crust
  • 1 orange or red bell pepper, sliced across into 4 slices, remaining chopped, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Method: 
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, chopped bell peppers, mushrooms and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and cook until mushrooms have released their juices, about 10 minutes. Add spinach and garlic and cook until the spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes longer. Set aside.

Mash tofu and place it in the bowl of a food processor along with soy milk and tahini. Purée until smooth. Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, black 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 until pastry and the top of the pie are golden brown, about 50 minutes. Let quiche cool several minutes before slicing.
