This looks like a super hard and involved dish to prepare but trust me, it is simple…especially if you use a store-bought pie crust.
You can adjust the veggies to taste but I would recommend trying it with the ingredients listed in the recipe, for the first time, and then feel free to adjust it to your taste when you make it again.
The key is to make sure you add HEAPING tablespoons of flour, otherwise, the quiche will be too runny. A note of advice, let the quiche sit on the counter for about 10-15 minutes before slicing it. Leftovers can stay in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Cauliflower! An absolutely amazing vegetable that is versatile as your imagination. This wonderful nightshade veggie (is great for gut health and provides antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.) You can grill it, bake it, mash it, fry it, and boil it! Additionally, cauliflower is a great source of cell-supporting folate, vitamins C & K. It is fat-free and cholesterol free and also low in sodium. What’s not to love about cauliflower?
This recipe comes together relatively easily and takes about 50 minutes of total cooking time plus about 10 extra minutes for prep. You can definitely eat this all by itself as a main dish or as a side.
Tofu is oftentimes a vegan’s best friend! I remember in my early years of being plant-based, my husband wanted to do something special for our anniversary. He planned a very fancy dinner at a 5-star restaurant. Being a thorough person, he called the restaurant beforehand and spoke directly with the chef. The chef said he was great at making plant-based dishes and not to worry, he would prepare something memorable. We sipped on our pink champagne and the waiter brought the supposedly magnificent vegan dish! An entire block of tofu, on a bed of greens, was his specialty. No dressing, no seasoning, no cooking, just plain out-of-the-carton tofu, cold!
It was beyond disappointing and also disgusting enough that it turned me away from tofu for several years. I am happy to say, however, that I now make it dozens of different ways but have been trying to master a crispy coating that would be the base for numerous seasonings. Use your imagination! Try using Mexican flavors like Cumin, Oregano, Chili Powder, Cilantro, and Salt. Or if you are feeling like something Italian, how about Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Oregano, and Salt? Indian seasonings like Turmeric, Garam Masala, Cumin, and Coriander also work well. The possibilities are nearly endless!
I think, after much trial and error, I have come up with something spectacular.
