Notes

Vegan Globetrotter Tips and Suggestions
Recipe Notes
  • You can use any type of tofu for this recipe, but I prefer to use extra firm tofu because it has a better texture for quiches.
  • I like to add nutritional yeast to my quiche for a cheesy flavor, but this is optional.
  • If you don't have a pie dish, you can use a 9x13 inch baking dish or an 8x8 inch square dish.
Storing Tips
  • Leftover quiche can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
  • To reheat frozen quiche, let it thaw overnight in the fridge and then bake it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until heated through.
Variations
  • Lighter quiche: you can use light or silken tofu instead of extra firm tofu.
  • Gluten-free quiche: use a gluten-free pie crust or make your own using almond flour or garbanzo bean flour.
  • Add in other vegetables like spinach, kale, mushrooms, bell peppers, or tomatoes.
  • Make it cheesy by adding in vegan cheese shreds or chunks along with the nutritional yeast.
