    Starvin' Vegan's Note:

    My friends and family are always getting on me to publish my recipes; I don't really use them, nor do I regularly remember even what I put into my dishes. I took this dish to a vegan potluck last night, and it disappeared in seconds. This morning I was awoken at gun point (exaggerated for dramatic effect) to post this recipe.... So, I thought it wise of me to comply. This recipe takes me about an hour of prep time, and about an hour to cook. There are shortcuts one may take to cut down on the prep time, but the first time, I suggest leaving ample time to prepare. I have used a variety of nuts for this recipe, all working out well (this last time I ran out of sesame seeds, so I used 2 tbsp of my tamari roasted pumpkin seeds, and 1 tbsp of raw pecans). I also like to make my dishes gluten free for potlucks, so I used ½ cup of blue corn meal, and ½ garbanzo flour in place of the whole wheat pastry flour, the taste was amazing, but a little more crumbly then whole wheat pastry flower. Finally, I really recommend using sesame oil, but realizing it is expensive, olive oil will work.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    Quiche

    Units: US | Metric

    For the crust

    For the filling

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the over to 350°F.
    2. 2
      To make the crust, spread the oats and sesame seeds/nuts of your choice on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for ~10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Transfer the toasted oats and sesame seeds to the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade (I use my blender, but it is boss). Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper, and process until the oats are finely ground.
    4. 4
      In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy milk and oil. Using a wooden spoon, mix in the dry ingredients to form a dough.
    5. 5
      Lightly brush a 9-inch or 10-inch pie with oil. Put the dough into pan, place a piece of plastic wrap on the dough and press down evenly, making sure to fill in the fluted sides of the pan. Trim the tart of any excess dough and refrigerate while you make the filling.
    6. 6
      To make the filling, in a wide saute pan over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the onion and mushroom, raise the heat to high, and saute for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring and shaking, and depending on how much of the left over wine you have chosen to drink, flipping the pan until the vegetables are caramelized. Add the wine and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and continue to cook until relatively dry (excess moisture gone). Using a rubber spatula, scrape the vegetables into a mixing bowl and set aside.
    7. 7
      In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm the remaining 5 tablespoons of oil. Add the garlic, basil, thyme, and red pepper flakes. Simmer gently for 3 to 4 minutes or until the garlic is golden. Do not let the garlic brown or it will become bitter (I mean that, I will find you)! With a rubber spatula, scrape the garlic oil into the bowl of a food processor or blender.
    8. 8
      Crumble the tofu into the bowl of the food processor. Add the lemon juice, vinegar, turmeric, and remaining 1 teaspoon of salt and puree until smooth. With a rubber spatula, scrape the puree into the mushroom-onion mixture.
    9. 9
      Remove and discard the tough stems of the spinach (not completely necessary but a fancy touch none the less). Wash the leaves in a large bowl with several changes of cold water. Transfer the spinach to a pot and cook covered, over high heat for several minutes, just until wilted. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water to arrest the cooking. Drain well and squeeze dry. Transfer the spinach to a cutting board and chop fine (this is important, going for flakes here, not stands). Add the spinach to the rest of the filling and stir well to combine.
    10. 10
      Fill the tart shell with the tofu and vegetable mixture and smooth the top with the back of a spoon. Dust with Paprika and some vegan cheese if you would like. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until firm.
    11. 11
      Let the tart cool for 8 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

      Best vegan quiche EVER! We went with blue corn meal in the crust, which added to an already amazingly flavorful and robustly textured crust. This quiche does everything right. The texture is right on, the flavors are to die for and it looks beautiful! I would say that this makes 6-8 servings. Thanks for posting!
