Ingredients

Sun-dried tomato and hemp quiche (Vegan & GF)

Ingredients for base:

  • 320g of plain flour (plain white, I used gluten free)
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 3/4 tsp of baking powder
  • 125ml of oil (I use hemp oil)
  • 80ml of dairy-free milk (I use Good Hemp)
  • 1 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Hemp seed 

     

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 1 box of firm silken tofu (349g)
  • 1 tbsp of hemp oil
  • 1 white onion (roughly chopped)
  • 1 garlic clove (roughly sliced)
  • 1/2 lemon (juice only)
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 2 tbsp of nutritional yeast powder
  • 4 tbsp of dairy-free milk (I use Good Hemp)
  • 1 tbsp of tahini
  • 143g of sun-dried tomatoes (drained)
  • 2 large vine-grown tomatoes (sliced)

How to make sun-dried tomato and hemp quiche (Vegan & GF)

To make the crust:

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C

2. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, salt and baking powder and stir until combined.

3. Add the oil into the dry ingredients, and rub together with your fingers until like breadcrumbs. This will take around 3-5 minutes.

4. In a small bowl, combine dairy-free milk and lemon juice, then add to the crust mixture, along with the hemp seeds.

Mix until a dough forms. You may need to add in more oil or milk.

5. Once a ball of smooth dough is formed, wrap it in clingfilm and pop into the fridge for 10 minutes.

6. Once the dough has firmed up remove from the fridge and allow to sit at room temperature for a few minutes.

7. Flour a clean work surface and rolling pin, then begin to roll out your dough to the size of your pie dish.

8. Spread a thin layer of vegan margarine or butter around the pie dish. This prevents the crust from sticking.

9. Wrap the crust around the rolling pin and carefully transfer the crust into the dish and trim off any excess dough.

It can be very crumbly so if it breaks apart, just press it together.

10. Prick the base and pop into the oven to part-cook for 8-10 minutes. Then set aside.

To make the filling

1. Place the tomato slices on a baking tray and brush the tomatoes with oil and a sprinkle of salt. Bake for 5-10 minutes. Set aside.

2.In a large frying pan, add in the oil and heat.

3. Add in the onion and garlic and shallow fry until golden and place aside.

4. Drain moisture from the tofu and crumble into a food processor. Then add the lemon juice, salt, yeast powder, dairy-free milk, tahini and sundried tomatoes. 

Whizz up until smooth.

5. Place into a large bowl and stir in the onions and garlic until combined.

6. Pour the filling onto the part-cooked base and garnish with some sliced tomatoes, basil and a sprinkling of Good Hemp seeds.

7. Pop into the oven and cook for 35-40 minutes.

Check after 30 minutes to make sure it's not burning. If it does start to burn, add foil on top.

8. Once fully cooked, serve with fresh basil and a sprinkling of Good Hemp seeds (for added protein)

Best enjoyed fresh or within 2 days.

This recipe is full of goodness

Tofu is well-known for its high protein levels, making it an excellent dietary option for vegetarians and vegans. Hemp is a fantastic superfood that’s packed full of protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals – in particular magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and vitamin E
