Tarte au Tofu
I fell in love. I have a new love affair with tofu and I have been busy trying to make a quiche/ tarte with tofu and my first try was very successful. I will post the recipe here in 2 weeks ( I promise) as I want to make it again. This quiche is a tofu based baked in a bain marie so it can have that custard like appearance. It was finished off in the oven and it did not fall apart. I have been waiting for my copy of Vegan Brunch for a week now and the recipe I wanted to try so bad was the vegan quiche but alas no book so I had to make my own and wow am I happy with the results. I used sweet spinach and oyster mushrooms and tomatoes and I used arrowroot and cornstarch to bind it. I used the famous black salt used by many bloggers recently to give the tofu a mild egg taste. I made a shortcrust pastry in advanced but I hope to try it with a more nutritious pastry. I adapted many recipes I saw on line from 101 cookbooks and Fat Free Vegan and some from my husbands French Vegetarian cookbooks which I will post the names shortly when I edit this post. For now enjoy the food porn and have a wonderful week.
