Vegan quiche?! Yupp, a dish that is basically all eggs can be made vegan!

The secret is tofu!

Tofu can be blended to make a creamy egg-like texture. When seasonings are added it can taste like eggs.

One thing I love about quiches is they can be made year-round. Make them seasonal by adding vegetables in season. Today we’re going Spring! Featuring leeks, asparagus, and chives.

Once the dough is chilled, it can be rolled out to about 1/4″ thickness and placed in a pie pan or tart pan.

Bake the crust alone for 10 minutes.

How to Make Quiche Filling

Combine tofu, oil, nutritional yeast, and seasonings into a high power blender (or food processor) and blend until completely smooth.

Note: Firm tofu is necessary for this recipe. Silken tofu will not firm up when baked!

What is Kala Namak Salt?

Kala Namak salt is a type of salt that has an egg taste! The first time I opened the bag I could not believe how eggy it smelled. This stuff is perfect for things like tofu scrambles, or this vegan quiche recipe!

Last, you want to saute your veggies. I only sautee them for 5-7 minutes as I still like the asparagus to have a nice crunch.

Does vegan quiche freeze well?

Yes! This is a freezer-friendly recipe. You can bake it and cut it into slices to freeze for single servings or freeze the whole quiche.

To reheat, bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes until warmed through.

Filling:

  • 1 14-ounce block firm tofu draind and patted dry
  • 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon kala namak salt optional but recommended. Gives the quiche an egg taste.

Instructions

Make the Crust:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If coconut oil is not solid, put in the fridge to solidify. Put a cup of water with ice cubes in the freezer.
  • Add flour, sugar, and salt to the food processor. Pulse. Add solid coconut oil and pulse until there are pea-sized pieces of coconut oil.
  • Add ice water 1 Tablespoons at a time until dough-like consistency (it took me about 5 Tablespoons).
  • Using a rubber spatula, pour the dough on a sheet of plastic wrap. Wrap the dough into ball and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.
  • Remove dough from fridge and place on a lightly floured countertop. Knead the dough a few times. Using a rolling pin, roll out into 1/4" thick, 10" diameter circle. Place in your greased pie pan and use fingers to press the dough, filling the edges as well.
  • Bake 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Make the Filling:

  • In a blender or food processor, combine all the ingredients for the filling and blend until completely smooth.

Make the Veggies:

  • Heat 1 Tablespoon of oil in a pan over medium heat. Once hot add asparagus and leeks. Cook for 5-7 minutes until leeks are soft and the asparagus is a vibrant green.
  • Add garlic and cook until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Remove from heat and mix with the tofu filling.

Assemble Quiche:

  • Top the pre-baked crust with the quiche filling, smoothing out the top with a rubber spatula.
  • Bake the quiche at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool 10-15 minutes before serving.
  • Top with chopped chives and enjoy!

Notes

  • To make this recipe gluten-free, substitute the all-purpose flour with Bob's 1-1 gluten-free flour.
  • Kala namak is a type of salt that gives tofu an egg-like taste. Not required, but highly recommended!
  • Firm tofu is necessary for this recipe. Silken tofu will not firm up when baking.
  • This recipe is freezer-friendly. Once baked and cooled, cut into slices and put in a freezer-safe bag or container, or freeze the whole quiche. To reheat, bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes until heated through. Bake times will vary based on if the quiche is cut into slices or left whole.
