Thought you couldn't? You can now!
Make this quiche at least 4 hours in advance. This is due to the long cooling time. The cooling time is essential for the springy consistency of quiche.

**All of the measurements are approximate due to my 'throw-it-in-and-see' approach to cooking. So if something seems too much or too little, then alter it to what YOU think is best**

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°c

    Roll out pastry on floured surface and line chosen dish.

    Make it quite thick to mimic thick crust of quiches.

    Cover with cling-film and chill in fridge while you prepare filling.

    **DO NOT TRIM EDGES OF PASTRY YET**

    (I used the lid of a casserole dish as I don't have a flan tin or anything)

  • Step 2

    While oil is heating, dice onion and 5 mushrooms.

    Cook until soft and starting to brown.

    Add peas and spinach to pan and cook for 5 minutes.

    **I use frozen peas and spinach, so the recipe may alter a little with fresh spinach**

  • Step 3

    While the vegetables are cooking- drain the tofu and pat dry with paper towels.

    Dice and place in blender with soy milk, curry powder and salt & pepper.

    Blend until smooth.

  • Step 4

    When vegetables are cooked- add 4/5 of the vegetables to the tofu in the blender.

    Pulse a few times until fully combined. You may have to manually mix together while in blender, then pulse again.

  • Step 5

    Spoon mixture into a mixing bowl and add the rest of the fried vegetables.

    Combine and add salt, pepper and curry powder to taste.

  • Step 6

    Remove pastry-lined dish from fridge and add filling until level with the pastry.

    Now trim edges of pastry so tidy.

    Slice 1 mushroom thinly and press slices into top of quiche for decoration.

  • Step 7

    Place quiche into preheated oven for 45-60 minutes.

    Take out and leave to cool for 90 mins then cover and chill in fridge for at least 2 hours.

Thanks Debbie!!

Hey Tasha- I thought the same but I use Jus-rol. Looked on their website and they mark their products for suitable for vegans. The shortcrust and puff pastry are vegan. I think the filo is too but I could be wrong. Have a look on their website. x
