Preparation

  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).
  4. Also, sauté carrot and rosemary: add 1 tablespoon of water and 1 teaspoon of soy sauce into a saucepan. When it starts to sizzle, add coarsely grated carrot and chopped fresh rosemary.
  5. Sauté for 3 minutes, adding water if necessary.
  6. Process all filling ingredients (except beet, carrot, rosemary, soy sauce, and spinach) into a batter. Then, mix in finely grated raw beet.
  7. Top the crust with a layer of sautéed carrot and rosemary (drain any excess water). Next, add steamed and drained spinach.
  8. Spread the tofu-beet mixture on top of spinach.
  9. Finally, sprinkle some coarsely grated raw carrot and beet on top on the quiche.
  10. Bake at 355°F for 55 minutes. Let cool before slicing.

Notes

To save time and make the quiche a bit leaner, prepare it without crust, in which case place the carrot-spinach layer in the middle.
