Ingredients

CRUST

FILLING

  • 270g (9.5oz) of extra firm tofu

  • Black pepper to taste
  • ½ tbsp. dried oregano
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ cup (120ml) water

  • 1 raw beet, finely grated
  • 1 big carrot, grated
  • 2 tbsps. chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce (leave out for Plantricious version)
  • 2 cups fresh spinach

Instructions

  1. First, using spoon and your hands, mix together the crust ingredients.
  2. Next, press the crust batter into 6” (15 cm) or 6.3” (16 cm) spring form cake tin and bake at 180°C (355°F) for 10 minutes. Let cool.
  3. While the crust is baking, steam the spinach or other leafy greens (chard, kale, turnip greens, collard greens).
  4. Also, sauté carrot and rosemary: add 1 tbsp. of water and 1 tsp. of soy sauce into a saucepan. When it starts to sizzle, add coarsely grated carrot and chopped fresh rosemary. Sauté for 3 minutes, adding water if necessary.

  6. Top the crust with a layer of sautéed carrot and rosemary (drain any excess water).
  7. Next, add steamed and drained spinach.
  8.  Spread the tofu-beet mixture on top of spinach.
  9. Finally, sprinkle some coarsely grated raw carrot and beet on top on the quiche.
