I’ve been on a mission to bring you countless breakfast concepts form savory to sweet! While we all love a good pancake or muffin, it can be more of a challenge to create savory dishes. One of my favorite concepts that typically is overlooked, is a good vegan quiche!

 

I feel as though quiches were big in the mid to late 90’s and somewhat fizzled out. However, I love a good homemade crust, I love the texture, but most of all, I love that you can pack a quiche with whatever veggies you like!

Vegan Zucchini Quiche


  • Author: Eat Drink Shrink
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 slices 1x

Ingredients

Scale

Crust:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup 2 tablespoons vegan butter or coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons water (cold)

Zucchini Mix:

  • 2 small zucchini grated, drained 
  • 2 shallots, chopped 
  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 package firm tofu
  • 3 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup vegan Follow Your Heart shredded Parm (you can always use more)

Instructions

  1. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the vegan butter, mixing until crumbly.
  2. Gradually add in the cold water 1tbs at a time and combine until the dough starts to come together. If too wet add a sprinkle of flour.  water.
  3. Once the dough pulls together and there’s no extra flour, cover the dough with plastic wrap, then chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  4. After 30 minutes, remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll out onto a lightly floured surface to about 1/4-inch thickness. You can roll it out between sheets of wax or parchment paper to prevent breaking. Once your dough is rolled out, gently press it into a pie tin, trimming any extra bits along the edges. Prick with a fork all over. Place in freezer until ready to fill. You can flash bake the crust for 10 minutes on 400, but you don’t have to. 
  5. Grate the zucchini and remove the water by squeezing in a nut milk bag, cheese cloth or by hand. In a pan over medium heat add the olive oil and shallots, saute until translucent, add the zucchini and garlic, cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat, set aside. 
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  7. In a blender combine the filling ingredients. Add a lil almond milk if needed to get it to blend smoothly. Fold in the cooked zucchini mixture and fill the pie crust. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown and firm. 

Notes

To add another dimension of flavor you can top with free herbs, add them to the pan while sautéing zucchini.

  1. Can you just do this without the crust, do you think it will come out fine?

  2. Instructions state to add spinach and artichoke, but ingredients list is not and say the quantity. Help!?

    • Hi Sassy! Thank you so much for catching that. There was a glitch in the recipe and it was referencing another a similar recipe. there is no artichokes or spinach in this dish and it focuses just on zucchini. However, you can absolutely fold in some fresh spinach as well as artichokes with the zucchini if you like. The recipe has been updated. Let me know if you have any questions!
