Yes! It is possible to make a delicious quiche without the use of meat or dairy! The crispy crust and creamy tofu filling will have you craving it in seconds!

The traditional quiche recipe calls for heavy cream (or milk) and eggs, which would sometimes make it too rich and have an overly eggy flavor. So I prefer to make a quiche using egg replacers such as tofu, which has a more mild flavor instead!

    This recipe is for you if:
  • You love tofu.
  • You’re in search of a vegan recipe for your next party.
  • You want to make a quiche with tofu.

OK, let me walk you through the ingredients of this easy vegan quiche.
