Vegan Quiche {What’s Cooking Wednesday}


vegan quiche

If you’ve read my recipes before, you know our family eats vegetarian 95% of the time. But, a few weeks ago, my husband decided he’d try making my life a little harder by committing to full veganism. While I may end up joining him in his plant-based life, I’m not quite ready to give up cheese and eggs. I was scrambling for a vegan brunch recipe to bring to our family Christmas. While doing some googling, the all-knowing internet gods started pushing Just Egg advertisements all over my screen. I figured, what the heck, why not try it. Enter: my Vegan Quiche recipe.

This recipe is super customizable. I added mushrooms, but you could easily add any vegetable you like! And it 100% passes the non-vegan taste test and was given two thumbs up by my most carnivorous siblings. 

Ingredients You Will Need:

  • one container Just Egg
  • thawed pie crust (make sure you look at the ingredients list if you’re wanting to keep this recipe vegan)
  • 10 oz mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 gloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Chao plant-based cheese shreds

How to Make Vegan Quiche:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large pan, add 1-2 tbsp olive oil.
  3. Over medium heat, saute the onions until they are translucent. (This is roughly 5 minutes.) Then add in your mushrooms (or other vegetables) and cook for another 5 minutes. Finally add the garlic and stir to combine.
  4. In your pie crust, add the mushroom onion mixture to the bottom. Sprinkle some vegan cheese on top.
  5. Add the entire bottle of Just Egg and season the uncooked quiche with salt, pepper and parsley. Top with another sprinkling of cheese.
  6. Cook in the oven for 45-50 minutes. Note: You want to make sure the quiche is cooked through, so do a little jiggle test and as long as the center is firm, you’re good to go!
