Tofu Quiche Recipe Idea
I got this tofu quiche recipe idea from Mrs. Marlene Mckinney. I had her mini crustless tofu quiches when I visited her house about 2 years or so ago. She’s an excellent cook, and her vegan cooking has appeared on 3ABN television.
Everyone who ate my tofu quiche liked it, so that gives me more confidence to share this Wal-mart (or local grocery store) friendly recipe idea.
Yes, I did buy a crust from Wal-mart to make a vegan pizza, but I’m starting to make my own crust because I want to expand my skills, and I also want to ensure I’m eating the most wholesome ingredients on a regular basis. The Rustic crust that I bought was made from enriched wheat, which isn’t the best, but I probably still will buy it on occasion. I can make pizzas from whole wheat pita bread, but I needed to make a crust and a topping that could feed at least four people.
Quiche Crust Recipe
1 C. Very Warm Water
1 T Active Dry Yeast
1 T Sugar in the Raw Turbinado Sugar
3/4 Tsp. Salt
2 1/2 C. WW Flour.
Combine and mix ingredients in a bowl. Knead it for a few minutes, and let the crust rise for 30 minutes. I personally will put a towel over it and let it rise in a warm place. Then roll out the crust VERY thinly on a sprayed cookie sheet, poke many holes in it with a knife, and let it cook in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
By the way, I found whole wheat and white whole wheat flour at Wal-mart. I mixed both of them together half and half, and my quiche crust recipe came out better this time. Because this recipe is more time consuming and I want the yeast to die, I make my crust at least one or two days in advance.
Tofu Quiche Filling
2 C different colored bell peppers
2 C chopped onions
Place in Bowl. Then add:
2 C chopped celery
4 tsp. dried rosemary (I also made my last one with 2 tsp. of dried rosemary)
2 14oz Nasoya Organic Extra Firm Tofu
1 C water
1 tsp. turmeric
4 Tbs. cornstarch (if you shop outside of Wal-mart, the non-GMO kind is the best)
1 T Garlic powder (You can reduce this to 1 tsp. Experiment to see what you like!)
1 T Salt
2 T Onion powder
Mix ingredients together and then place on your premade quiche crust. Preheat the oven to 375F and bake for about 30-40 minutes. Eat and enjoy!
