I got my crust recipe from my mom:

2 1/4 C cold flour
2/4 C shortening
7 T ice water (possibly more)
1 t salt

Mix flour and salt; cut in shortening. Add ice water 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing with a fork or beaters. When the dough is mixed (it may still be crumby) roll it onto a floured surface. Fold flattened dough in half, roll out, fold again, and continue about 4 times. Roll the dough about 1/8″ thick and press into pie pan. Trim the crust and poke with a fork. Prebake at 375 for about 15 minutes.

Ive seen lots of different recipes for the filling, but this one is what we had in the fridge. All of these measurements are extremely approximate.


1 14-oz pack firm tofu
1/2 C plain almond or soy milk
1 T turmeric
1/2 T paprika


1 leek
1/2 onion
1/2 lb oyster mushrooms

Mix the tofu and the sauteed vegetables and pour into the pre-baked pie shell. If you want to be fancy, top the custard-ish mix with some slices of red bell pepper.

Bake for 45-60 minutes at about 375. Youll want to let the quiche set for about 10 minutes before cutting into it. At this point, it will be pretty deliciously gooey.

If Id rolled it out thin enough, I could have used the dough to make two quiches. There was certainly enough filling to split between two pies. But I really like my dough thick, and with the excess dough from the single quiche I made a little apple pie for a surprise dessert.

Needless to say, the entire meal was delicious!

That looks amazing. Grin Mum is allergic to eggs (severe migraines- eurgh), so I might just have to try this out on her. Weight-wise, how much tofu did you use? Around here, 'one pack' could mean anything from 100g to 750g. Smiley

Thanks for catching that! It was a 14 oz package, which I believe is about 350 g.
