Sun Dried Tomato and Spinach Quiche

 

I love sun dried tomatoes – can you tell? 😛 I love quiche too. It’s a perfect weekend I’m-too-busy-to-cook food. You can just cut a piece and snack on it and not have to think about cooking.

 

Sundried Tomato and Spinach Quiche

 

1 prepared whole wheat pastry crust (or your favorite pastry crust recipe)

1 pkg of firm tofu

1 tbs soy sauce

½ cup boiling water

10 pieces of sundried tomatoes

1 medium onion

½ tbs red pepper flakes

1 tbs olive oil

1 cup frozen spinach – thawed

1/3 cup nutritional yeast

1 tbs turmeric

1 tsp smoked paprika

Ground black pepper to taste

½ cup grated vegan soy cheese (optional)

 

Preheat oven to 375°.

 

In a small bowl pour boiling water over sun dried tomatoes and set aside.

 

Add tofu to food process and pulse for 1 minute. Add soy sauce, basil, nutritional yeast, turmeric, paprika, black pepper. Pulse for an additional minute.

    Hi,
    I’m a cheese addict who’s been a vegetarian for more than 30 years. I’m now slowly on the road to becoming vegan. Yesterday, I made a modified version of your sundried tomato and spinach quiche recipe (i.e., I used only the ingredients I already had at home). I was amazed; it was absolutely delicious. Cheeseless quiche never tasted so good!

    Sincerely,
    Denise
