When I was first married I made a quiche a week. Since I have been vegan it was a challenge to get the cheesy-eggy consistency without traditional animal products. That is, until now!
This delish quiche comes together rather quickly. The pie crust is super-easy to make and comes out perfect each and every time. Feel free to add whatever vegetable you want, it does not have to be broccoli. Also, you can experiment with different cheeses, especially with so much variety available today!
The one veggie my grandsons will eat, consistently, is broccoli. They don’t particularly like broccoli slaw, due to the texture. I found that by pulsing it in the food processor makes all the difference. This recipe comes together in literally 5 minutes and stays in the refrigerator for a few days.
Also, I paired it with an Ina Garten recipe passed on from my sweet niece. I did a little tweaking with the original but for the most part, it is all Ina!
The first recipe is for the broccoli slaw and the second for the Cous-Cous Salad.
Not everyone loves eggplant, also known as aubergine, but this version is a crowd favorite.
The smoky taste of the grilled eggplant along with the lemony pasta makes this dish deliciously light and satisfying.
The skin on the grilled eggplant should start to shrivel and the shape soften. Be sure to test for doneness by poking with a fork or knife.
When sauteing mushrooms, remember to cook over a medium-high heat, turning often, and do not salt! if you don’t like mushrooms…this dish works great without them.
