Onion quiche

Delicious shortcrust pastry filled with a delicious silken tofu and onion filling

Onion quiche (vegan) recipe

Onion quiche, which was supposed to be an onion tart. Somehow I had then but no desire for a “cake” and the quiche form I had also already in hand. In no time it became a quiche with a fine filling, which is just perfect with a mixed salad or a late summer buffet. For all those who have enough onions in house, it can start now.

The basis is once again a shortcrust pastry made from spelt flour, margarine, ice cold water and salt. I put it all together in my Magimix and process it with the s-shaped knife to a fine dough. I am still very happy with the Magimix because you can use it so widely. *unpaid brand mention, I have no affiliation with the company.

As a second step, I saute the onion together with some olive oil in a pot. This is important because they develop a wonderful aroma and are already a little softer before they go into the oven with the filling.

As a final step, I prepare the silken to fu filling by placing silken tofu, cornstarch, black pepper, turmeric (for a great color), kala namak (for an eggy flavor), nutmeg, and vegetable broth in a high-powered blender and process to a fine paste. Add the pre-sauteed onions and off you go into the quiche pan and into the oven.

Vegan dishes with silken tofu

Tofu comes in many different varieties. Smoked, fermented and refined with a wide variety of spices. A very special way of preparation is the production of silken tofu, which is softer and more watery than conventional tofu. This is due to the water content of almost 80%. It is most often used in the preparation of dips, creams and desserts. It scores with a particularly high content of vegetable protein, magnesium, calcium, copper, iron, B vitamins and its complete profile of essential amino acids.
