Miniature Vegan Quiche Recipe
Quiche is one of those things I never considered to be a part of a vegan diet – which makes sense, being that quiche is typically made with eggs and cheese – until recently when I came up with this Chickpea Breakfast Scramble. I was considering making some Chickpea Breakfast Scramble the other day, when I saw that I had tart shells in the freezer, and that’s when it came to me: I could make Vegan Quiche! These are a perfect dish for Sunday brunch. This recipe for Vegan Quiche makes half a dozen mini quiches, but if you need more, simply double the recipe but only use 1 1/4 tsp Salt.
I used Emborg Cheddar-Style Vegan Cheese Shreds in this recipe, but you could use any vegan cheese that you love most. Pre-bake your tart shells before filling them to ensure the bottom of the shells stay crisp and flaky. Follow the instructions on the package if you are using store bought tart shells; if you are making your own crust at home, bake your shells for approximately 8 minutes at 350’F.
