SO HOW'D IT GO?

So I didn't have some of the things here, it was a last minute recipe grab. I woke up and thought "I want quiche!" But overall I think it turned out really well! My boyfriend love it and it filled both of us up. I didn't have the zucchini or artichokes unfortunately, because I think these would be have been great, so I used onion, green pepper, garlic, and spinach as the veggie base. Also, I didn't have firm silken tofu, so I used regular firm tofu (I was nervous about this but it turned out great!) I added some of my own spices: cumin, curry, corriander, a little hot sauce. I also added a dash of liquid aminos. I used a 9 inch pie pan and i wish it was a little thicker so next time I'm going to use a smaller one or a cup cake pan for some cute mini quiches.

The consistency of the crust and tofu mixture was spot on for this recipe.

I also sprinkled some nutritional yeast on top towards the end of the cooking to give it a bit of a cheesy taste. yummm!
