Quiche Gone Vegan

*Pictures may not appear in email. For full post, visit http://www.PalkiePlace.com

One of those breakfast wonders is the quiche. Eggs in most forms appear on breakfast menus across the nation. Scrambled, fried, sunny-side up, over-easy and then there is the quiche. For whatever reason it seems to get the fancy name even though it’s still just a bunch of eggs baked (kind of like a really thick omelet).

But just like omelets, and the other egg offerings, they’re not vegan and sadly loaded with animal proteins, cholesterol and dietary fat. [browse the China Study for more info. on the link between animal proteins and diabetes, coronary heart disease and more]. Sometimes I almost miss those delicious eggy variations until I remember that I can make the same thing with oodles of health benefits!

Here is my recipe for a vegan quiche’. You’re welcome.

Vegan Quiche

Crust (optional)

  • 1c Brown Rice Flour
  • 1c Cashew (or almond) flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 3T coconut oil (solid)
  • 3T water

Directions:

Preheat over to 350F and lightly grease an oven-safe pie plate.  Stir together dry ingredients.  Begin to combine coconut oil and water until you have a very crumbly mixture (add more water by the table spoon if the dough is very dry; might take a few minutes to mix).  Once your dough is ready, being pressing it into the pie plate.  Using a fork, poke a few holes on the bottom of the pie and then get crafty and create a pattern on the crust.

Pre-bake the crust for 20 minutes.  Let the crust cool before adding your filling or place in the fridge until you feel like putting it all together.

 

The (Veggie) Quiche

Ingredients:

  • 1 block of non-gmo firm tofu
  • 3T nutritional yeast
  • 1T onion powder
  • 1t thyme
  • 2 gloves of garlic
  • 1/2t salt
  • 1T arrowroot starch
  • 1c grated carrot
  • 1c grated zucchini
  • scant cup daiya shredded cheese (optional)

Directions:

Using a food processor, blend together all of your ingredients except carrot, zucchini and optional cheese.  Give it a taste to check your seasoning levels.  Pour contents of food processor into a large mixing bowl and combine veggies and cheese.  When everything is well combined, pour the mixture into a prepared crust or lightly greased pie pan.  Bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes.  Let cool when finished and then enjoy!

I loved this with a little organic ketchup and hot sauce.  I especially loved eating it as my SEAHAWKS played on to VICTORY!
