Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: This is a recipe I created. It is a vegetarian style quiche made with tofu and nutritional yeast flakes, onion, garlic, spinach, and a few spices. I also used a bit of coconut milk which, when cutting out cheese in a recipe, adds a bit of creaminess. Although coconut milk is high in saturated fat, it is also full of fiber and has been found to be very healthy. I also used Simply Potatoes hash browns for crust. It is really healthy without the eggs and cholesterol.
