Ingredients

Broccoli and Leeks

  • 4 cups broccoli chopped bite-sized, leaves and stems removed
  • 1 Tablespoon melted refined coconut oil more for custard
  • 1 leek white and green parts, cleaned and cut into half-moons
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • pinch of salt

Custard

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews soaked and water discarded
  • 7.5 ounces firm tofu
  • 5.3 ounces vegan yogurt plain and unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/4 cup refined coconut oil melted
  • 2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon tamari
  • 1 Tablespoon mellow white miso
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Set a 9 ¾ inch quiche dish on a half sheet pan.
  • To make the filling, add the broccoli florets to a pot and cover with water. Cover and bring the water to a boil. Cook until the florets turn bright green and are just al dente, about 5 minutes. Drain and add to a big mixing bowl.
  • Heat a cast-iron or nonstick skillet over low heat. Add the oil. When it is shimmering, add the leeks, garlic, and salt, and use a wooden spoon to coat the vegetables. Cook until the leeks are bright and translucent, and the garlic is fragrant, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Transfer the leeks and garlic into the bowl of broccoli. Mix to combine, and transfer to the quiche pan. Spread the mixture out evenly.
  • To make the custard, add the water, cashews, tofu, yogurt, chickpea flour, oil, nutritional yeast, tamari, miso and turmeric to a blender. Blend until combined and creamy, 1 to 2 minutes depending on your machine.
  • Pour the custard over the broccoli and leeks, distributing it evenly. Bake for at least 1 hour, or until the top has browned and the center is firm to the touch.
  • As it cools, the top will deflate just a bit and the quiche will continue to firm up. Slice and serve.
