Silken tofu blended with nutritional yeast, turmeric, and cahsew milk wonderfully mimics the texture of chicken eggs in this veggie-loaded vegan quiche.

Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust (frozen vegan)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ounces cremini mushrooms
  • 4 ounces baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 14 ounces firm tofu (drained)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cashew milk
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Arrange a rack to the lowest position in the oven.
  2. Poke the bottom of the frozen pie shell with a fork, and place on a baking sheet. Transfer the baking sheet to the bottom rack of the preheated oven.
  3. Bake the pie shell for 12-14 minutes, until the bottom is slightly puffed. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  4. Reduce the oven to 350° F.
  5. Finely dice the red pepper. Thinly slice the mushrooms.
  6. Set a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in the olive oil. Once the oil is shimmering, add the red pepper, mushrooms, and spinach leaves. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3-4 minutes, or until the spinach is fully wilted and the mushrooms are browned. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.
  7. Place the tofu, cashew milk, nutritional yeast, turmeric, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in a blender. Blend on high for 2 minutes, or until completely smooth. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl.
  8. Place the spinach, mushrooms, and peppers in the tofu mixture. Fold with a rubber spatula until the vegetables are evenly distributed.
  9. Pour the mixture into the blind-baked pie shell. Cover the edges of the pie shells with pie guards or strips of aluminum foil.
  10. Transfer the baking sheet to the bottom rack of the preheated oven.
  11. Bake the quiche for 55-65 minutes, until the top is firm and golden brown.
  12. Remove the quiche from the oven. Allow to cool for at least 1 hour at room temperature before slicing and serving.
