Its herbal tea time with lemon grass
Although quiches may sound a little old fashioned, you have to admit, their charming aesthetic makes them really hard to resist! Quiches are extremely versatile; a quiche is a savoury open tart, or open pie, with a flaky pastry crust filled with a base custard mixture of eggs, cream, and cheese. Popular quiche recipes include bacon and leaks, such as the Quiche Lorraine. As a vegan you don’t have to miss out on quiches at all. Now more than ever, there are loads of recipes that omit chicken eggs completely, creating the same ‘egg’ custard-y texture of traditional quiches. It really isn’t hard at all!
The actual preparation, cooking of the filling and making of the crust are actually pretty easy. What might seem off putting to some are the long baking times. Traditional quiches need to bake in the oven for up to 45 minutes (depending the the size of the pie pans) and, in some cases, there’s also the pre-baking or ‘blind’ baking of the crust. Other than that, it’s just a matter of mixing up a couple of ingredients.
Quiche is the type of dish that can be enjoyed at any time of day. Grab a slice for breakfast, accompanied with your favourite fruits, have a slice for lunch with a hearty salad, or have a leftover slice for dinner with a nice bowl of soup. Because quiches sometimes taste better the next day, it’s a great dish to make in advance, especially if you’re making it in preparation for a special occasion or a picnic, as you don’t need to worry about heating it up because you can just serve it cold.
Although I’ve used the VeganEgg from Follow Your Heart, you can completely omit this from the recipe and tweek the amounts of gram flour and tofu. It even works with using either gram flour alone, mixed with cream, or just silken tofu blended with the cream. They all yield slightly different textures. I chose to use the VeganEgg because of the texture and its binding abilities.
The main ingredient in the VeganEgg powder is Algal flour (a derivative of algae). There are still some misconceptions around consuming algae, but it is often considered incredibly nutritious. Let’s not forget that Spirulina is an algae, and seaweed is considered more of an algae than a plant. Algal flour is an excellent source of fibre with 4g per serving, and zero cholesterol. Algal flour also contains highly digestible amino acids that are absolutely necessary for regulating the appetite, metabolic rate and the ability to have deep sleep.
