Vegan Egg-Free Quiche With Mint and Spring Peas

Vegan Egg-Free Quiche With Mint and Spring Peas

For those that have never gotten the chance to try this delectable dish, quiche is a French tart. It usually consists of a pastry crust filled with a savory filling (typically a custard), as well as cheese, meat, fish, or vegetables.

Of course, for this vegan quiche, I went with vegetables. I have made many quiches over the past few years. Non-vegans always think the quiches feature eggs and cream because the taste and eggy texture closely resemble traditional dairy- and egg-based quiches. You can serve quiches either hot or cold.

My pea and mint quiche filling does not contain any animal-derived ingredients. Some of its ingredients include silken tofu, mixed herbs, plant-based milk, nutritional yeast, mustard, mint, and, of course, peas.

We have been having some hot weather lately, so I thought a pea and mint quiche with coleslaw and potato salad would make a lovely light dinner.
