Susie burned herself while making: Spinach mushroom quiche

Filed under: Food Recipes & Cooking
Quiche for one.

Quiche for one.

There’s a lot of room to personalize this, e.g. with a plain white flour crust, different veggies and/or the addition of some vegan cheese. It’s hard to go wrong – no matter what, you’ll probably end up with a tasty and impressive dish which performs excellently at dinner parties. Adapted from the Vegan Family Cookbook.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Whole-wheat crust:

  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tbs. water
  1. Sift together flours and salt.
  2. Mix in the olive oil and water with a fork until just combined.
  3. Roll the dough out on a well-floured surface with a well-floured rolling pin, and transfer to 9-inch baking dish. If you fail at this, however, do like me and just mush the crust into the pan in the right shape.

Filling:

  • 1 bunch spinach, stemmed and chopped
  • 6 white mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 16 oz. extra-firm tofu, lightly pressed
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 3 1/2 Tbs. cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. flour
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. all-spice
  1. Sauté onions, spinach and mushrooms in a little oil until spinach is wilted and onions are translucent.
  2. Mix tofu, yeast flakes, cornstarch, flour and spices in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  3. Fold in vegetables.
  4. Transfer mixture to the pie crust.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes.
