    Mrs B's Note:

    Ssssssh! Don't tell everyone, but this tasty recipe is actually vegan! It'll kick into touch any ideas you may have had that a) vegan food is dull, and b) you don't like tofu. This quiche tastes good, is easy to make, reheats well and is great cold too. DH, who claims not to like tofu, wolfed this one down! I classify this as a British recipe, partly because of the use of porridge oats (oatmeal).

      Loved the concept and protein content, however it turned out tasting really bland. I think more salt, pepper & herbs could make it really good; plus next time I may try using more of a more potent herb (rosemary perhaps?)
