Breakfast Review – Tofurkey Quiche

Happy Monday, all. This past weekend the Blonde and I were in the mood for junk food for breakfast. See, generally she makes breakfast for us, and usually it’s pancakes, waffles, or a tofu scramble, but we were bored, and didn’t know what we wanted, and neither of us wanted to cook, so, like magic, she pulled a box from the freezer!

Yup, the Tofurkey quiche. Single serve, about the size of a pot pie, and totally cheater breakfast food.

My mother makes quiche, but the first two ingredients in her are mayonnaise and eggs. . . I might be able to swap out the mayo with Just Mayo or Vegenaise, but I think replacing the eggs with applesauce or egg replacer or something else might be a bridge too far. Maybe silken tofu. . .  Hmmm, but that’s another blog post.

The quiche itself was pretty tasty. Lots of spinach and red pepper, with a smooth, soft texture. It was reminiscent of traditional breakfast quiche. The sausage in it was tasty, if a bit too salty (which is a trademark of Tofurkey, I think). The crust was really tasty, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I loved a good savory crust. This one was a little flaky, just the right amount of density, with a richness that usually denotes butter, but did the job in this vegan breakfast.

I wonder, though, how would you go about duplicating this, or better yet, making an improved version? Before I ruin the kitchen (which I apparently always do when I cook) I’d like a plan. . .  So, ideas?

  1. I would definitely go with silken tofu, nooch and cashew cream. Probably with leeks, spinach and some other veggies. I can do my own crust, but I really like whole foods whole wheat crust from the freezer section.
