Vegan Quiche Lorraine La Vie™



60 min


1 sheet of plant-based shortcrust pastry (homemade for clever piggies)
150 g La Vie™ lardons
150 g silken tofu
150 ml plant-based cream
25 g cornflour
A pinch of nutritional yeast
A pinch of Himalayan pink salt (Optional - for egg-ceptional flavour and yes, it just so happens to be our favourite colour )
A pinch of turmeric (for extra pizazz in the colour)

Step 1:
Preheat your oven to 180 °C.
Place the pastry into a tart tin (or a flan dish, if that's what you call it!) and prick it with a fork.

Step 2:
Heat the lardons in a hot pan with a dash of oil.
Leave them to cook for 5-6 minutes until they've got a glorious colour on them.

Step 3:
Get the quiche filling ready by mixing together the tofu, cream and cornstarch in a bowl. Use a hand-held mixer to whiz it all together.
Season to taste with salt, pepper, a pinch of nutmeg, nutritional yeast and turmeric.

Step 4:
Add the fried lardons onto the base of the quiche and gently pour over the filling.

Step 5:
Pop in the oven for 35 minutes, until the quiche starts to go that gorgeous golden brown colour.

Step 6:
Enjoy with a fresh, crispy salad.
