One of my absolute favorite things to make around Christmas is a filling, savory quiche. My mom and I used to make mean quiches years back when I lived in Sweden. She still makes them and have perfected them- all vegan of course as she is a vegan too these days.. Amazing I know! Below is a fairly simple, mouthwatering recipe for vegans and non-vegans. I had a few friends try this and they all loved it. If you're not into mushrooms you can add extra spinach or veggie that you like. I made my own dough but if that seems like too much work, get your store-bought to save time. 

ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • pinch of salt
     
  • 12 oz firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • 3 tbsp chopped dill
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tomato, sliced thinly

 

instructions

Preheat oven to 375°F. 

Mix flour, oil, cold water and pinch of salt in a bowl until combined. Roll out the dough and press into a 9" pie crust or pie pan. Bake for 10 minutes in the oven.

Meanwhile, sauté onions and mushrooms for 5 minutes. Add spinach and cook until wilted, for about a minute. Set aside. 

Add tofu, dill, nutritional yeast and spices to a food processor, let run until smooth. In a large bowl, combine tofu mixture with onions, mushrooms and spinach. Add mixture to the pie crust/ pan. Smooth out the mixture. Top with sliced tomatoes and place it in the oven. Bake for about 40 minutes or until golden. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
