If you need cheering up this week take time out in the kitchen
Wow what a week. Love sent to you all and especially those of you who once again find yourselves in lockdown. I hope you have the ingredients to cook up feasts for yourself during this time. Food is our saviour right now. Get cooking for yourself, your loved ones and your neighbours.
This week was request week and no requests came in but many moons ago my friend asked me for recipes she could make and grab for her breakfast when on the run to work. As many of you will now be at home this recipe may not be so appropriate but it is a lovely grab and go recipe and maybe you can have it ready in the fridge for a few of your lunches while you are at home.
It is inspired by my BFF from primary school’s gran’s recipes. Has anyone tried the Not Salmon Cakes
. They are good too.
This recipe is a quick quiche recipe. I remember many years ago my friend Lisa’s mum making me a quick quiche where there was no base you just threw the flour in with the rest of the ingredients. Well this recipe is just like that but made vegan.
Quick Vegan Quiche Recipe (throw everything in the same dish)
1 cup plain flour for non gluten free (for gluten free either 1 cup almond meal or 1 cup besan flour
1 packet silken tofu (make sure it is organic)
¾ cup nutritional yeast
2 tsp herb salt (or 1 tsp regular salt)
½ tsp ground pepper (or less up to you)
2 carrots diced small
3 spring onions (scallions) cut fine
Handfull of spinach wilted then shredded
1 cup cooked peas or corn
½ red capsicum diced fine (optional)
2 cloves cooked garlic
1. In a food processor place the tofu, nutritional yeast, cream cheese and cooked garlic and whizz until smooth. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
2. Place all of the other ingredients in the bowl with the tofu mixture and fold through with a spatula.
3. Pour into a greased quiche dish.
4. Bake in 180°C oven for up to 35 minutes or until firm and a little golden on top.
