Mushroom and Asparagus Quiche Vegan

This was my first time making an eggless quiche and it turned out amazing! Enjoy this mushroom and asparagus quiche for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. Best of all, this reheats well so is perfect for the next day. Simply place leftover quiche on a baking sheet and pop it in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 200C.

For this I used store bought pastry, next time I will make my own so it fits the mold better.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 50 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients
1 block firm tofu
1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil (optional)
4 Spring onions
3 large garlic cloves
3 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
10 asparagus stems
1 cup baby spinach
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Dash of sea salt
Black pepper and red chilli flakes to taste.

Method
  • Preheat oven to 200C and lightly grease a round 10-inch pan.
  • Blind bake the crust at 200C for 13-16 minutes, or until lightly golden and firm to touch. Set aside to cool while you prepare the filling.
  • For the filling: Place the tofu in a food processor or blender. Blend the tofu until smooth and creamy. If it doesn't get creamy, add a tiny splash of unsweetened almond milk to help it along.
  • In a pan, sauté the spring onion and garlic over a medium heat for a few minutes. Then stir in the mushrooms, season with salt, and cook on a medium-high heat until most of the water cooks off the mushrooms, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in the basil, spinach, asparagus, nutritional yeast, oregano, salt, pepper, and red chilli flakes until combined. Cook until the spinach is wilted.

  • Rremove from the heat and stir in the creamy tofu until thoroughly combined. Adjust seasoning to taste if desired. Spoon mixture into the baked crust and smooth out with a spoon until even.

  • Bake quiche, uncovered, at 200C for 35-40 minutes, until the quiche is firm to the touch.
  • For best results, cool the quiche for 5-10 minutes before attempting to slice.

  • Wrap up leftovers and refrigerate for 3-4 days. Leftover quiche can be reheated in the oven on a baking sheet for about 15-20 minutes at 200C.
