Quiche is usually made with eggs, but it’s really not hard to make it plant-based. Usually, tofu or chickpea flour is used to make the vegan alternative, and with some savory spices, you won’t even know the egg is missing! Quiche is a wonderful dish for brunch, and also makes a great breakfast that you can eat throughout the week. Check out these egg-free quiche recipes from our Food Monster App!
