Vegan Broccoli Quiche

Serves 1 Quiche

Lately, I’ve been craving quiche.  I loved the stuff before I chose to give up all the animal products and I never could wrap my brain around using tofu to create something like an egg.  However, for all of you skeptics out there, this recipe is THE BOMB.  I’ve played with it just enough to get it right and I think you’ll love it.  Once you get it down, there are so many variations of quiche that you can make.  So, get ready to be eating breakfast/brunch food pretty much every day for a while.  You’ll get hooked!

Vegan Veggie Pot Pie

March 1, 2015
Serves 4 Pot Pies
Prep time
25m
Cook Time
40m

This recipe makes 4 personal pot pies. I baked them in ceramic pot pie dishes which are basically oversized dessert ramekins. You can also buy mini pie tins from the grocery store and use those.

First, preheat the oven to 375. Then you’ll want to pre-bake your bottom crust. I make my own pastry crust from the MyVeganPlanet recipe, found here.  Once you’re ready to use your pastry dough, pull it out of the fridge and roll it out to 1/4 inch thickness on a floured surface. Cut the dough to your liking to create a bottom crust for each pie and a top crust. If you’re really ambitious, you can make a lattice top for the pot pies by cutting strips of dough and “weaving” them together to form a tic-tac-toe board type of topping. It looks cute and will make old ladies go “awwwwwww, how precious!”. Spray your pie pans or dishes with a little baking spray. Place your bottom crusts in the pie dishes and bake until they are golden. Remove from the oven and set aside.

*Note* The bottom crust thing is totally optional. Personally, I like a lot of crust in my pot pie, which is why I have a top and bottom. Also, if you don’t feel like making your own pastry dough, you can use ready-made puff pastry, which works just as well and tastes pretty damn good. Again, this is all up to you and how much time you have.

This is one of my favorite vegan dessert frostings not only because its so easy to make, but also because it tastes so fresh and the flavor of the strawberries really pops.  I love to use it for cupcakes and sugar cookies, but this frosting works well for a vegan cake as a drizzle topping, too!

Prep time
30m

This simple recipe for cornmeal fritters makes a delicious vegan snack or accompaniment to a meal. They are great with hot sauce, and can be dipped in to nearly anything!

A few notes!

* Don’t add the zucchini until after the 30 minutes

** Don’t add any salt or seasoning until you are familiar with your falafel mix (mine is quite salty)

*** The fritters are delicate and need care to flip especially if you are using little to no oil in your frying pan.
