  • For a 9 inch quiche tin

  • For The Pastry:
  • 200g Plain flour, plus a bit more for rolling it out
  • 100g Margarine (we like Pure, other options are Vitalite and Flora)
  • ½ tsp Mixed herbs
  • Himalayan pink or sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • For The Filling:
  • 1 White onion, chopped into small pieces
  • 14 Plum or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 40g Fresh spinach, rinsed and patted dry
  • 280g Tofu, pressed and patted dry
  • 125g Vegan cream cheese mixed with 2 tsps mixed herbs
  • 50g Chickpea/gram flour
  • 3 tbsps Nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp Ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp Garlic granules
  • 4 tsps Black salt/kala namak
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 250ml Plant based milk
  • A couple of pinches of smoked paprika, for sprinkling over
  1. To make the pastry, put the flour into a bowl with salt and pepper, and herbs if using. Add the margarine and chop into small pieces with a knife. Make the flour into small bread crumb-like balls and add water- enough for you to form it into a ball. Put in a little bag or wrap in cling film and place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes until its ready to roll out.
  2. While the pastry is in the fridge, prepare the filling. Saute the onion in a bit of water, slice the tomatoes in half and wash the spinach. Place all of the other filling ingredients except the smoked paprika in a high speed blender and blend. You're looking for something that's not too thick and not too thin.
  3. Take the pastry out of the fridge and sprinkle some flour on a clean surface. Roll it out with a rolling pin, and then carefully lift up over your tin. Fill in any spaces with extra pastry, then blind bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Take the pastry out of the oven and add in the spinach, tomatoes, and onion. Pour in the filling and and even out with a spoon. Sprinkle some smoked paprika over the top and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 30-35 minutes until it's risen and cooked through.
