Cheese & Onion Quiche with Optional Vegan Bacon
Chava Eichner says: ‘When it comes to “eggy recipes,” quiche is right up there on the list. Whether you opt for cheese and onion or add some smoked tofu, this recipe is great for parties, picnics and light lunches.
Although we list ready-made pastry in the ingredients, feel free to use your own home-made version if that’s what you do. It’s easy to make your pastry vegan by using vegan butter (eg Biona, Pure, Vitalite or Tesco Free From spread) to replace dairy butter and Trex white fat or Biona Coconut Cuisine (mild tasting) to replace lard. We encourage everyone to try wholemeal flour and other whole food products where possible as they’re tasty and healthy. Here’s a link to a simple wholemeal, reduced-fat pastry using mashed potato and wholemeal flour.

Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?
We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.
Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
