This is one basic quiche recipe that you'll come back to again and again. Easy and elegant, it can be dressed up with any vegetables or herbs you like, or with bacon or a vegetarian meat substitute for a little extra savory component.
We like to use this dairy-free pie dough recipe for this recipe, but if you prefer a tart-style quiche, any dairy-free tart dough recipe also works well.
Dairy-free soy margarine, for greasing pan
9 large eggs, divided
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons salt
Steps to Make It
Prepare the Pie Crust
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Grease a 10-inch pie plate well with dairy-free soy margarine.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pie dough to about 1/8-inch thickness.
Fit the dough into the pie plate.
Trim the excess dough, leaving just enough to form the crust.
Crimp the pie crust edges. Place the pie plate in the refrigerator, uncovered, for at least 15 minutes.
Make the Filling
In a medium-sized mixing bowl using an electric hand mixer, beat 1 of the eggs until pale yellow and frothy.
Add the flour and beat until well combined.
Add the remaining eggs.
Beat for about 3 minutes, or until the mixture has increased in volume by a third and is very light and frothy.
Gradually add the almond milk, nutritional yeast, and salt.
Beat for 2 minutes more after all has been added.
Bake the Quiche
Pour the egg mixture into the prepared crust. Bake for 10 minutes.
Turn down the oven temperature to 325 F and bake for 35 to 40 minutes more, or until the quiche is firm but slightly jiggly. Allow the quiche to cool on a wire cooling rack for 15 to 20 minutes or until set.
Add some fresh chopped baby spinach, chopped bell pepper, onions, bacon, sausage; the opportunity is endless to jazz this quiche up to with whatever additions you are craving.
- This quiche will keep in an airtight container for three to four days in the refrigerator.
- Or freeze your quiche for later use; just eat it within three months.
How quickly should you refrigerate your quiche?
Quiche should be put in the refrigerator within the first two-hour window. It is a highly perishable food and must be stored properly and safely.
