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!

ENJOY!
