For the pie crust:
3/4cupplus 2 tablespoons flourI use all-purpose. You can also use oat flour to make it gluten-free.
3/4cupplus 2 tablespoons, almond flour
2teaspoons flaxseed meal mixed with 2 tablespoons of water
Make the Pie crust: In a bowl or food processor, add the flour, almond flour, salt, herbs, and pulse or mix. Add in the flax egg and mix in.
Then add in 4 tablespoons of non-dairy milk and mix well or process 10-15 seconds
If the dough is somewhat dry, add in more non-dairy milk, 1 teaspoon at a time until you can make a dough which is somewhat sticky and crumbly, not necessarily all together, but sticks when you press.
Press this dough into a greased 9 inch tart pan (or use a pie pan) . Use a fork to create holes in the dough. Then bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 c) for 13 minutes.
Meanwhile for the filling: heat up oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for half a minute. Then add in the leeks, mushrooms, and salt and continue to cook until the mushrooms are golden.
Once the mushrooms are somewhat golden, add in the spinach. Mix in and continue until the spinach moisture is evaporated for 3-4 minutes. Cool this mixture for 10 mins
Make the tofu egg mixture by adding all of the ingredients to a food processor with 2 tablespoons of water and processing it until the mixture is somewhat smooth.
Mix your mushroom leek filling in this mixture and then transfer it to the baked pie crust.
Even it out. Top it with some cherry tomatoes or sun-dried tomatoes and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Once the center is set and not jiggly, the quiche is done. Take it out of the oven and let it sit for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Use oat flour or Glutenfree blend instead of all purpose to make the first Glutenfree.
If you're pressed for time or for Nutfree crust, you can use a regular flour and vegan butter crust or store-bought pie crust. Many pie crusts are vegan by default and some are labeled vegan. Just check the ingredients before you purchase.
Add in flavors such a Italian blend or chopped sundries tomato to the tofu egg mixture for variation
