Mushroom and Spinach Vegan Quiche Recipe
Who says you need eggs to make a quiche? My eggless vegan quiche is savoury, satisfying, comforting, loaded with vegies, healthy, crispy on the crust, egg-like in the centre and perfect for lunch, brunch, dinner and even served cold at picnics.
- ½ cup whole almonds
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ cup water
- 500g firm tofu
- ½ cup soy milk
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- Zest ½ lemon
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
½ cup water
- 1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 10 medium-sized mushrooms, sliced
1 zucchini, grated
- 1 carrot, grated
2 handfuls spinach, shredded
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp dried oregano
- ½ cup whole wheat flour
- Salt & pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 180°C.
- Add all crust ingredients (except water) to bowl and combine. Add water and mix with hands until mixture forms moist but firm dough (keep adding a little water if necessary).
- Spread dough with fingers evenly over base and sides of a 25cm loose-bottom flan tin. Poke fork holes in dough so air can escape. Bake for 10 mins or until lightly golden and firm to touch. Set aside to cool.
- Increase oven temperature to 200°C.
- To make filling, place tofu, soy milk, nutmeg, zest and maple syrup in a food processor or blender and blend to ricotta consistency. Place in large bowl.
- Heat frying pan on high heat. Add ½ cup water then add onion and garlic and sauté until all water evaporates. Add mushroom and sauté until soft. Add zucchini, carrot and spinach. Add soy sauce and sauté for a couple of mins until vegetables are soft.
- Place cooked vegetables in bowl with tofu mixture. Add oregano, whole wheat flour and salt and pepper to taste. With hands, mix ingredients together in bowl.
- Place tofu and vegetable mixture in cooked flan crust. Press down firmly. Bake for 30 mins. Remove, let cool and serve.
