Vegan Quiche

Yum!

I am not Vegan but I am more and more concerned about the Dairy industry and the cruelty afforded to animals for milk and eggs. I hold my hands up i have a bit of a cheese addiction and wish I didn’t but anyway I am trying to introduce more Vegan food into my diet.

This quiche is great made with Tofu as the ‘egg’ colored with a touch of tumeric for a yellow colour. I added too much so it really looks yellow but hey ho.

I am waiting to try this on my wonderspouse to see if he guesses its Vegan.

1 pack of Tofu

1/2 teaspoon of tumeric

1 medium onion chopped

1 diced pepper

3 chopped up mushrooms

2 chilli peppers

1 tsp of fresh thyme

1 tsp fresh oregano

slices of 2 ripe tomatoes

wholemeal pastry

Roll out pastry and bake blind. I used spelt flour and mixed in some pumkin seeds for some extra nutrition.

mash up the tofu and mix in the tumeric for colour.

Mix all of the other ingredients together with the Tofu and fill the pastry case, layer on the tomatoes and season.

oven bake until firm.

salt and pepper
