Cook Time



To Make the Crust:

  • 4 cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons rosemary 
  • 2 shallots (diced)
  • 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
  • 3 tablespoons water

To Make the Filling:

  • 1 bunch asparagus (chopped)
  • 24-ounces firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together, then add the oil and water.
  3. Press the dough into an oiled pie plate.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes until it starts to feel slightly firm but not turning golden (you will return to the oven to bake with the filling).
  5. Turn the oven up to 425°F.
  6. Drain and press your tofu to get all the liquid out.
  7. Blend the tofu and almond milk in the blender until smooth.
  8. Pour tofu into a medium mixing bowl and add mustard, nutritional yeast, oregano, lemon juice, and salt.
  9. Sautée the chopped asparagus and mushrooms in about a tablespoon of olive oil and minced garlic over medium heat until slightly browned.
  10. Add the asparagus-mushroom mixture to the tofu mixture.
  11. Pour the filling into the crust.
  12. Bake at 425 for 25-30 minutes (until the center isn’t jiggly).
  13. Allow this to set up for about 10 minutes.
