Cheesy Broccoli & Tomato Quiche

A few new twists on our old deluxe quiche recipe to make it super delicious. If you'd like a gluten-free base then check out the recipe here. Easy, simple and so tasty... this one is definitely a crowd pleaser.

Ingredients: 

Pastry

  • 1 block Jus Rol shortcrust pastry (or other vegan, supermarket own brand, check ingredients). See this recipe for gluten free pastry option. 

Filling

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 400g/1¾ cups firm tofu
  • 225g/2 cups plus 1 tbsp savoury vegan cream cheese (eg Sheese, Tofutti, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Koko, Violife)
  • 125ml/½ cup unsweetened plant milk (eg soya, almond or oat)
  • 1 tsp mixed dried herbs or 1 tbsp fresh of your choice (eg parsley, basil, oregano, chives)
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 tsp lemon juice (fresh or bottled)
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp vegan syrup eg maple or agave
  • ¼-½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 head of broccoli, broken into florets
  • 3 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1½ tsp salt (or add more to taste)
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 200g/2 cups grated vegan melty/pizza cheese (eg Violife, Cheezly, Sheese, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Vegusto, Daiya)

Method: 

  1. Roll out the pastry block to fit a large flan dish (diameter about 25-28 cm/10-11 inch). Spread around evenly with your thumb and fingers.
  2. Refrigerate while you prepare the filling.
  3. Preheat oven to 190˚C/375˚F/Gas Mark 5.
  4. Fry the onion in 2 tsp oil for around 5 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and then fry for a further 2 minutes.  
  5. Meanwhile, steam the broccoli florets for around 3-5 minutes until just slightly crunchy, not soft.
  6. Blend the cream cheese, tofu, plant milk, Dijon mustard, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, syrup, turmeric, salt and pepper until fairly smooth. Stir in the herbs so they're evenly distributed.
  7. Arrange the broccoli, tomato slices and onion/garlic mix around the pastry case, evenly.
  8. Pour the filling mixture on top, distributing it evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle the melty vegan cheese on the top. Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes or until firm in the middle. Check after 35 minutes, as the time will vary depending on your oven.
  9. Allow to cool a little before cutting and serving.
