Ingredients

For the dough:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3/4 cup plant-based margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the filling:

  • 14 oz silken tofu
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon starch
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons herbs de Provence (thyme, oregano, rosemary, and basil)
  • 1 pinch kala namak (optional but recommended)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • about 7 oz green asparagus
  • 2 green onions, cut into rings
  • about 10 sun dried tomatoes in oil
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, cut into halves

Instructions

  • Make the dough: Combine all ingredients in a bowl and knead into a smooth dough. Form a small ball and let it rest in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cut the green onions into rings. In a medium pan, heat some oil and add the green onions. Stir gently for about 2 minutes. Set aside. Cut the asparagus into small pieces and cook in salt water for about 3 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the silken tofu, the oil, the starch, the turmeric, the herbs de Provence and – if using – kala namak. Whisk until smooth. Chop the sun-dried tomatoes. Add them together with the green onions and the cooked asparagus (save the asparagus ends for the top) to the tofu-mixture and stir well.
  • Divide the dough into twelve portions and place twelve baking cups into a muffin tray. Evenly press the dough balls into the bottom and all the way up the sides of the muffin cups. Fill with the tofu-mixture, top with half a cherry tomato and an asparagus end and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 °F (180°C). Serve together with a green salad or as a snack.

Notes

  • For the dough, I used whole wheat flour, but the recipe also works with all-purpose flour. For a gluten-free version, you can replace the wheat flour with a gluten-free flour blend.
  • If you prefer to have one big quiche instead of several mini quiches, you can also pour the mixture in a regular quiche pan. If you do so, don’t forget to grease the pan before you press in the dough.
  • The recipe is super versatile. I’ve also tried a vegan quiche with leek and tomatoes and spinach and mushrooms. You can just use this recipe and use any other veggies you like. It’s also great with smoked tofu.
  • We ate the vegan quiche along with a green side salad for dinner, but they are also great as a hearty snack or breakfast.
