This vegan quiche is so easy and delicious. You can vary the veggies. Some other ideas: spinach, artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes...
3 medium-large potatoes (3.5 cups grated)
2 Tb melted vegan butter
1/4 tsp salt and pepper
1 Tb olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1.5 cups broccoli, diced
1.5 cups mushrooms, sliced
1 red bell pepper, diced (use any color you like)
3 cloves of garlic, minced
12-14 oz block of firm or extra-firm tofu, pressed
1/3 cup vegan cheddar
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
2 Tb water
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dried basil and oregano
1/4 tsp garlic powder and onion powder
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
Heat oven to 450 degrees F and spray pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. Grate potatoes and put them in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out as much water as you can. Put in a bowl and add the vegan butter, salt, and pepper. Toss to mix and press into the pie plate and up the sides in an even layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Lower the oven to 400 degrees F.
Heat the olive oil and saute the onion until translucent. Add the mushrooms and red pepper and saute for a few minutes until the water comes out of the mushrooms. Add the broccoli and the garlic and saute a few minutes more. Don't cook too much because the veggies will continue to cook in the oven.
Combine tofu, vegan cheddar, nutritional yeast, water, and the rest of the spices in a food processor and blend til smooth. Mix with the sauteed vegetables and put in the hashbrown crust and smooth the top. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. If the crust is getting too brown tent the quiche with foil. Let sit for 10 minutes and enjoy!
1 Tb olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 large shallot, diced
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 package vegan sausage ( I used the kind in a tube that was 14 oz)
2 Tb vegan butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups unsweetnened, unflavored non-dairy milk ( I used almond milk)
scant 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sage
several grinds of fresh cracked pepper to taste
several dashes of hot sauce to taste
1 tsp vegan worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
Saute the onion, shallot, and garlic in the olive oil for a few minutes in a large frying pan. Crumble in the vegan sausage and add the vegan butter and brown the sausage over med-high heat. Lower the heat and sprinkle in the flour and let cook for a few minutes. Pour in 1/2 the milk and cook and scrape up the bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir until it starts to thicken and add the rest of the milk. You can add more milk or water if you would like it less thick. Add in the salt, sage, pepper, hot sauce and worcestershire and paprika.
Cook your grits according to package directions and then add some to a bowl and top with some gravy and enjoy! :)
This is my first try at gluten-free baking. These came out great!
1 and ¾ cup gluten-free flour (Bob’s Red
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder (non-aluminum kind like
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
5 Tb vegan butter, chilled (Earth Balance
1/2 cup almond milk (or other non-dairy
1 tsp vanilla
zest of 1 lemon
1/3 cup almonds, chopped
heaping 1/2 cup diced strawberries
coarse sugar for sprinkling (optional)
Heat oven to 400F.Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.Sift dry ingredients together (flour,
sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt).Cut butter into small bits and add to the dry ingredients.With a pastry blender, 2 knives, or
your hand, cut the butter into the flour so the pieces of butter are small like
peas and blended into the flour, giving it a sandy texture. Add almond milk,
vanilla and lemon zest and mix briefly just to combine.Add almonds and strawberries and
carefully mix again.
Divide dough in half and place one half on a
floured board (using gluten free flour) and knead a couple of times and pat
into a 6-inch circle.Cut each
circle into 6 triangles.Place
them on the prepared baking sheet.Repeat with rest of the dough.Sprinkle with coarse sugar and bake for 16-20 minutes.
I got the recipe from here and it is easy and yummy. I changed a couple of things but nothing major.
Espresso Pecan Scones
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2-1 Tbsp ground espresso
1 cup lightly toasted pecans
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup raisins (optional)
pinch of salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/3 cup warm coconut butter
or coconut oil, plus a bit extra for brushing
1/3 cup local honey or maple
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp hot water
Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line a baking sheet with
parchment paper. In a medium sized bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Mix well.
Add the pecans and coconut, again, mixing well, and set aside.
Warm the coconut butter and honey together - either over low heat on the stove
or in the microwave - and stir until its lump free. Then, pour the coconut
mixture over the dry ingredients and press it into the dry ingredients to
combine completely. You want the texture of the mixture to be like wet sand before
you add the water.
Pour the water over the dry ingredients and, with your hands, squeeze and press
the mixture so it comes together into a dough. If the dough has a hard time
coming together, add a tiny bit more water but not too much!
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface or cutting board and pat the
dough into a nice little round circle. Cut the circle into sixths. Place the
scones - evenly spaced - onto the prepared cookie sheet, brush lightly with
Bake for 13-14 minutes, or until lightly golden. Let cool for a moment before
eating! If you're porting the scones, let them cool completely before putting
them in an airtight container for travel (so that they don't get soggy.)
