I remember the very first time a friend of mine wanted me to try tofu, she covered it in BBQ sauce and just baked it. She called it dinner and personally I didn't know what to call it. Since, I'm a champ I put my big girl pants on and stomached it. However, I made a promise to myself to never eat that stuff again. Obviously, my feelings have changed since then.
I consider myself a quiche fan, but I'm certainly not a devotee. However, I wanted to try cooking tofu another way. Since, I had mastered tofu in stir fries, peanut sauce and spring rolls... I thought quiche would be a great addition to my tofu journey. And I am excited to tell you that my experiment was a total success. I am now a total tofu quiche convert. (Whatever that is... I hear all the hipsters are doing it).
This quiche recipe is so easy. So, even if you've never attempted to make quiche before... I believe that you can nail this recipe. It requires only 16 ingredients (only?) and its prep is simple enough that even a novice cook can make it.
The crust is nothing, but ground flax seed, almond flour, oat flour, salt, herbs, and coconut oil (which makes it entirely gluten free naturally)! The filling is packed with roasted vegetables (any kind you have on hand and want to use), a mixture of firm tofu, leek, mushroom and nutritional yeast to give it the perfect “egg-like” taste and texture.
This vegetarian quiche is a low-cholesterol, wholesome brunch entree that's easily made with versatile, protein filled tofu. This egg-less alternative to traditional quiche is so delicious that it will fool even the most dedicated brunch devotees ... No one will ever even know it's vegan except you, of course! Like traditional quiches, ours contains one of the greatest vegetables: leafy green baby spinach.
It tastes so delicious... how can you possibly go wrong with mushrooms, spinach, and tofu? How can anyone (yourself included) not love something that is made with a garlic infused olive oil and a speedy herb? For those out there that ask, what does it taste like? I say it tastes - absolutely divine! Seriously, it:
And it's so close to the real thing that everyone thinks they're eating the traditional quiche. Personally, I think it'd be great for brunches and lazy mornings, as well as when you have family and/or friends in town for the holidays. I am 100% confident that non-vegans and vegans alike would totally love this quiche recipe.

Leftovers stay good in the fridge for 4 days. Quiche can also be put in the freezer.
