VEGETABLE VEGAN QUICHE

Preparation time: 25 mins + 1 hour setting/cooking

Serves: 8

VEGETABLE VEGAN TART

 

We absolutely adore this recipe for its simplicity and deliciousness factor. It honestly tastes better than a traditional quiche. You would have no idea it's made from tofu because the texture and colour are so similar to egg. 

If you are short of time then you can use frozen short crust pastry but we love making it from scratch because it's hard to find wholemeal pastry. The vegetables can also be substituted for whatever you have in the fridge so it's a good 'left overs' meal.
