Vegan Spinach Quiche

Ingredients:

Filling:

1 lb. fresh spinach, washed and shredded

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

1 large onion, chopped

4 oz. mushrooms, sliced

12 oz. tofu, pressed to remove excess water

1/2 tbsp. dried dill

Fresh parsley

Salt and pepper

2 tbsp. sunflower seeds

Vegan Pastry:

8 oz. whole meal flour

Pinch of salt

4 oz. cold vegan margarine

Instructions:

Pre-heat oven to 375F.

To make the vegan pasty, sift together flour and salt. Use finger tips to rub in the margarine until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add just enough cold water to bind it to a dough, then wrap the dough with cling film and leave in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the spinach in a saucepan in a minimum of water, or steam it, until just soft.

Heat the oil and fry the onion until it begins to soften, then add the mushrooms and cook for a few minutes.

Mash the tofu, to make a thick puree. Add dill, chopped parsley and seasoning. Stir in the mushroom mixture and spinach.

On a floured board roll out the pastry then place onto a medium-sized dish. Pour in the tofu, spinach and mushroom mixture, smooth the top and sprinkle with sunflower seeds. Bake for about half an hour.

Serve immediately.
