Tofu Quiche

Diet Type: Dairy Free

Cooking Time: Over one hour

Ingredients:

  2 pounds tofu, drained and pressed to remove moisture
  2 cups finely chopped or torn spinach
  1 clove garlic, minced
  1/2 red bell pepper, minced
  1/2 onion grated or 2-3 chopped scallions
  Spices to taste: parsley, oregano, garlic, Tamari, paprika
  Small amount of oil, tomato juice or water to saute
  sesame seeds
 
Directions:

In most cases , tofu should be well drained and pressed before it is to be used. It is especially important that you drain the tofu for this recipe. Wrap the tofu in a towel, or , better yet, between two plates, and then put a heavy pot on top.

Mash drained tofu with pastry blender or potato masher. Set aside. Saute garlic, onion, and pepper in a small amount of oil, tomato juice, or water. Fold into mashed tofu. Spoon into oiled pie pan or quiche pan. Bake at 350 F for about 1 hour or until top is firm and edges are browned. Sprinke with Sesame Seeds and paprika and serve.
