Hi Jill. Thank you for sharing this recipe; it looks amazing. I will make it sometime today. I plan to mix everything together in the large skillet rather than using a bowl; just one less thing to wash! I love your channel and often share them on FB. Dawn
Looks delicious, Jill. Did you experiment with an almond crust by any chance? Anxious to try all the latest recipes. Thanks, Joyce from Colorado
I didn’t but the crust from my Apple Pie recipe would work with this. It is a very neutral flavored crust.
Can’t wait to try this! Do you think it would be okay to use tapioca flour instead of the arrowroot?
Looks delic! What about the tofu…do u just throw it in the blender with the water or do you drain it? Or press it?
Just drain it.
Wat een heerlijk recept, zo jammer dat je vanuit Nederland niets kunt bestellen…
I made this on the weekend but substituted chickpeas for the tofu since I’m not a fan of tofu. Family loved it.
I made this for dinner yesterday and it was absolutely delicious! In fact, this was one of the best tasting wfpb recipes with tofu I‘ve tried so far. Made it exactly as written and the texture was perfect after 55 minutes in the oven. It was nicely browned and firm, yet juicy on the inside. We will definitely make this again.
I made this today, substituting all of the vegetables (except onion and dried tomatoes) with broccoli because that’s what I had on hand. I did use a crust because I had one left from Thanksgiving that I had to use for something. I used ‘firm’ tofu, and I agree, it would have set up better with ‘extra firm,’ and I only had 1 T of cornstarch, so then used 1 T of chickpea flour to make up the difference. It came out great, and it’s huge, so we’ll have it for the whole week. Great recipe!
Can I replace the tahini with something else? It’s the only ingredient not in the house… have some sesame seeds though. Thanks! Excited to try this!
You can leave out the Tahini. It just gives it a bit more richness. =)
Looks amazing and so very much plan on trying! Is the nutritional yeast used only as a flavoring or does it contribute to texture? I can’t use, so if necessary to the recipe, is there a sub? Thanks!
It is just for a richer flavor so you can make it without.
I made this today. Great recipe!💖
Since I live alone and it is huge, I was wondering if it can be frozen?
I haven’t tried freezing it, but I think it might go watery once it thaws.
No problem freezing it. Was still delicious. Cut it into serving size pieces, wrapped individually.
Hi Jill, this quiche looks amazing and I plan to try it soon. I have a few questions, though: Can I leave out the sun-dried tomatoes? Also, is your springform pan non-stick? I try to avoid non-stick things at all costs but have not been able to find a not non-stick spring form pan. If yours is not, where did you get it? Lastly, what can I use in place of a spring form pan, maybe a regular one lined with parchment? Thanks for the feedback!
Hi Magy, Yes, you can leave the sundried tomatoes out. I don’t think my pan is non-stick. I have had it forever so I’m not really sure but the best would be to line it with parchment first, on another pan lined with parchment.
Would it be okay to cook this in a regular Pyrex pie plate instead of the springform?
Hello – thank you fir this wonderful looking recipe. I was wondering if the veggies and sauce could be made ahead, (kept separate or combined?) until christmas morning?
Honestly, I’m not sure how the sauce would do. I think the veggies would be ok but might go a little watery.
