Quiche (or tart)
200g/7 oz/1 and a half cups plain flour (either white or wholemeal)
100g/3 and a half oz/ half a cup vegan margarine
5 or 6 tablespoons of cold water
1 block of tofu (silken or firm) - roughly about 200g/7oz
half a teaspoon of turmeric
1 onion, roughly chopped
2 cloves of garlic
3 tablespoons of soya milk
a little seasalt
extra ingredients of your choice:
cheatin' ham (soy based meat analogue)
Preheat oven to 190C/380F. In a large mixing bowl rub the margarine into the flour to a breadcrumb texture. Gradually add the water and mix to a dough. On a floured board roll this out to fit your flat pie or quiche dish. Grease dish and line with the pastry.
In a food processor combine the tofu, turmeric, soya milk, onion, garlic and salt until fairly smooth. Into this you stir your chosen ingredients - mushroom and tomato is lovely - so is plain sweetcorn. Even just a plain quiche topped with sliced tomatoes is a very nice meal when accompanied with new potatoes and salad. For a sage and onion tart add a handful of fresh sage to the tofu mixture before processing.
Pour the filling mixture into the pastry case and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes or until firm in the middle (this will vary from oven to oven so check from about half an hour).
