This vegan silken tofu quiche recipe with caramelised onion, mushrooms and rosemary. This vegan mushroom quiche will be sure to be a family favourite for a simple mid week vegan dinner!
I grew up eating a lot of quiches as a child in France and I love how versatile they can be. My silken tofu quiche is so easy to make and very tasty. I have made my vegan quiche recipe in the past with leek in this vegan leek quiche recipe. I chose a filling of caramelised onions, mushrooms and rosemary for this tasty vegan quiche.
This vegan tofu mushroom quiche is:
- high in protein from the silken tofu
- Packed with caramelised onions and tasty mushrooms
- with a hint of rosemary
Substitutions when making my vegan silken tofu quiche with onions and mushrooms:
This recipe contains gluten in my homemade vegan quiche crust recipe. You could try making it with buckwheat flour.
The filling of my vegan quiche is made with onions, mushrooms as well as silken tofu. The silken tofu filling can be replaced for a chickpea flour filling like in my spring asparagus chickpea flour quiche. Maybe if you have a soy allergy a chickpea flour filling will be best.
For the filling I used caramelised onions and mushrooms but you could also use leeks, broccoli, zucchini or tomatoes.
