ener-q quiche

trolley Aug 8, 2012 08:00 AM

has anyone ever made the quiche recipe published on the box of ener-g? i'm curious but maybe not curious enough to make it. win i think of quiche i feel like the egg is the main star or at least a major component of the dish. but i do like quiche and would like to serve it to my son. anyone?

    I've never made the Energ quiche, I can't imagine how it would taste good. Something like this works quite well: http://www.thewickedgoodvegan.com/201...

      I have not made it, but I've had plenty of great vegan quiches and omelets. This is my go-to quiche recipe. It's super adaptable and is a mega crowd pleaser: http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2006/12/...

        I've never used Ener-g but have had good luck with the vegal quiche recipe in Vegan Brunch by Chandra Moskowitz. The principal difference between her recipes and some others, I think, was combining tofu with cashew cream. Her recipe has you grind up the cashews without soaking. I've had better luck with cashew cream when the cashews are soaked. But I had forgotten to soak them so I "speed soaked" them in the pressure cooker just like I sometimes do for beans.

          sounds great but unfortunately we're dealing with a sever tree nut allergy and especially to cashews and pistachios :(

            if sunflower seeds are tolerated, you can soak and blend them into a cream.

              we're big into sunflower seeds. i had no idea you could make 'cream' out of it but i suppose if you can make cream out of cashews then it's possible with any other nut/seed. thank you. what a great idea.

          Weird - was JUST wondering this same thing last night as I looked through Ener-G's website.
