    Quiche is a classic brunch dish, but since it is an egg dish it's usually excluded from vegan meals. This version uses firm tofu in place of eggs, imitating the texture that quiche is known for, and a vegan crust. Mushrooms, broccoli, and bell pepper add color and flavor—swap out your favorite veggies to suit your tastes.
