    Wish I Could Cook's Note:

    If ever a recipe was in need of an extreme make-over, it's the quiche. Exit all those high-fat, high-cholesterol ingredients and enter a fabulous new recipe that tastes great, is actually healthy for you and best of all, is quick to put together when you use a prepared pie crust. From the book "Quick Fix Vegetarian" by Robin Robertson. Be creative with your veggies, asparagus,spinach, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes... Or skip the veggies and use some tempeh bacon or TVP crumbles. So many options! Note, if you use silken tofu, you may want to add 1/4c thickener such as cornstarch or arrowroot

      What a great quiche recipe! It came out so tasty with a wonderful custardy filling that reminded me a lot of traditional egg based quiches. So great! The seasonings are a wonderful starting point, I especially enjoyed the mustard! To complement the veggies I used (carrots the first time round and zucchini the second time round), I added some more garlic, cayenne pepper, rosemary and black pepper.
      I only had 1/2 the tofu needed and no nutritional yeast, but I threw everything together and it worked out perfectly nonetheless. :)
      I had some hard-boiled eggs leftover (Im not a vegan) and so I added them to the quiche (making it non-vegan). I hope that was alright and did not totally destroy the purpose of the recipes. The second time I left them out and added more veggies and that was great, too.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, hon. It is my new go-to vegan quiche recipe and I shall make it often again.
      For the crust I used 1/2 of this fantastic recipe: Aunt Jennie's Pie Crust (With Oil)
      Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap # 48 August 2012.

      I wasn't sure what to expect but this recipe is very good. I picked this in Vegi Tag as a way to use leftover veggies -- however the only veggies I had in the veggi drawer were carrots - lots and lots of carrots, which I used combined with some veggi crumbles. I also used read parmesan cheese instead of the yeast or vegan parmesan and the vegan cheese I used was monterey jack flavored. Together with some salad this was a good and economical meal.
