Roasted Tenderstem, Red Pepper and Sun-Dried Tomato Quiche. Dairy-free. Egg-free. Vegan.

Today I’m sharing a recipe for a quiche that would be great for sharing in the upcoming season. Check out the festive red and green veggie decoration. You’re bound to attract a ‘wow’ response if you show up at a friend’s party with this clutched in your hands.

The filling is encased in a pastry which is robust enough to be sliced and handled without crumbling, making it suitable for serving as finger food at parties and buffets. It’s dairy-free and egg-free, so perfect for your vegan friends and family. I’ve also made the recipe nut-free, so anyone with nut allergies can safely tuck in.

Filled with roasted onion, red pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, herbs and nutritional yeast, this quiche is packed with flavour. However, the ‘star’ of this recipe has to be the roasted Tenderstem broccoli. It looks so pretty set in the top of the quiche (like mini Christmas trees!) It also tastes amazing and gives great texture to the dish.

Growing up, I was never a fan of quiche as I really dislike the ‘eggy’ flavour, but these tofu-based quiches I adore. Everyone has different taste buds though, so if you’re a fan of ‘eggy’ flavour, you can always add in a touch of black salt to replicate it.

If you wish, you can  cheat and buy ready-made pastry but I promise you, my pastry recipe is incredibly easy to make and super cheap too.

  1. This looks lovely Sharon. I used to adore quiche and made one with tofu a few months back but although I enjoyed it, my family weren’t great fans. I know I would enjoy a GF version of this!

  2. This looks so incredible! We’ve been making a vegan quiche at my work which is cashew based, but I think tofu would be a perfect texture. The filling ingredients just look so appealing with the variety of colour! I want this for breakfast right now! Might have to head to the store and get some tofu!!

    1. I do find that tofu has the perfect texture for quiche. It’s important to add lots of flavours to it (nooch, herbs, salt, onion, garlic) plus a touch of oil for a smoother consistency, then I reckon even tofu haters would love it 😉
