VEGAN Quiche, to be exact.

{why yes, I do believe I'll have a slice, er...I mean two!}

That's right! You don't need yucky chicken periods to have a good slice of quiche. I haven't eaten quiche in years but had a hankering lately.

And it's quiche with asparagus and green onions. Fabulous! Somehow, I don't imagine I'm the only one who laughs at asparagus pee...still, not as cool as magenta-beet pee.

This recipe is in Ripe From Around Here by jae steele (my go-to cookbook for several dishes now).


I think I cut it while it was still pretty warm, so it didn't hold together as well as it should have, but it tasted awesome. I'm going to check some out (re: eat more!) later at home. A round in the fridge probably did the job. If not, I might blend in some flour with the tofu mixture next time. Also had to settle for a pre-made piecrust (no eggs or dairy), but it'd be sweet to make my own next time. Non-veg pie crusts were the bane of my existence back in my high school "Practical Living" class (because aren't we all practically living?).

Pretty tasty! jae steele, you're my homegirl.



  1. My high school called it Eat to Live. Who thinks of these names?!

  2. HAHA what? That's so weird. Why couldn't they just call it "Home Ec?"

    For some reason, I got it in my head that I wanted to learn how to tie a tie, so I signed up for that class. I learned how to make pillows, iron clothing, bake, all sorts of things. But not to tie a tie...sadness. To this day, I still lack that tidbit of info :)

  3. I'm sure you can learn to tie a tie on youtube. That's where I learned to put on eyeliner.

    Glad you enjoy the recipe, and I hope the pie firmed up for you in the end. Very pretty pics! (Though of course I was admiring your crust with a bit more aesthetic envy before I read it was pre-made!) Thanks for the mention.

  4. I think I just got a bit overzealous cutting into it too early. It firmed up more after a while and when I ate more from the fridge. Props on the recipe; it's very good. The book has been fantastic! I've been going by the seasonal suggestions :)

    I think I'm going to make the quiche again soon and try to figure out my own pie crust. Eeek!

  5. Do you remember...everytime the boys had to wear a tie, I had to go online to figure out how to tie it? It wasn't that important to me so I didn't store the instructions in my memory bank and I'd STILL have to look it up if the need came up. We may not know how to tie tie's but darn we can cook!! (or, you can, rather)
