Tofu Quiche

What you need: 

Crust:
1/3 cup peanut oil
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon soy lecithin, optional (helps oil and water emulsify)
pinch salt
2 cups all-purpose wheat flour Filling:
1 onion, diced
4 ounces shitake mushrooms, chopped
1/8 cup tamari soy sauce
1 pound tofu
1/4 cup oil, plus a little extra sautéing
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 pound spinach, steamed

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For crust, mix first 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Put the flour into a pie pan, and mix liquid from the bowl into it until the mixture can be formed into a ball.
2. Press and flatten to the sides and bottom of pie pan using your hands. Prick with a fork all over. Bake for 15 minutes for a partially baked crust.
3. For filling, sauté the onions and mushrooms in oil, and add tamari soy sauce. In a blender or food processor, blend tofu, oil and nutritional yeast.
4. Pour into a large bowl and mix in steamed spinach, and sautéed onions and mushrooms. Pour entire mixture into partially baked crust and bake 30 minutes. Let cool. Enjoy!

This sounds great!...but what is soy lecithin?

Soy Lecithin is an emulsifier, meaning it helps bind two substances that don't usually bind (like when you mix oil with water in my recipe  ;D). It can be used instead of eggs in lots of recipes, and is a common ingredient in baked goods and in butter/margarine products. :o
