Oil-Free Tofu Beet Quiche [Vegan, Gluten-Free]




For the Crust:

  • 2 tablespoons, plus 1 teaspoon peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 3 tablespoons, plus 1 teaspoon oat bran
  • 2 tablespoons raw buckwheat flour

For the Filling:

  • 9.5 ounces of firm tofu
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 level tablespoon psyllium husk
  • 1 small raw beet, finely grated
  • 1 big carrot, grated
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary

  1. First, using spoon and your hands, mix together the crust ingredients.
  2. Next, press the crust batter into 6-inch springform cake tin and bake at 355°F for 10 minutes. Let cool.
  3. While the crust is baking, steam the spinach or other leafy greens (chard, kale, turnip greens, collard greens).

    Next, add steamed and drained spinach.
  8. Spread the tofu-beet mixture on top of spinach.
