How to Make Eggless Coriander Quiche

  • For the crust:
  • Add the first three ingredients in a bowl or in a food processor.
  • If doing this by hand, cut the shortening in until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  • If doing this in a food processor, break down the shortening into small pieces by pulsing a few times.
  • Drizzle water as you mix by hand or by running the motor of the food processor.
  • When the dough comes together, pat it into a disc and place in refrigerator.
  • For filling:
  • Heat the oil and add the onions.
  • Saute the onions until they just begin to turn lightly brown.
  • Add the garlic and saute on low heat for a minute or two until the garlic softens.
  • Don't let it burn. Turn off heat.
  • Put tofu, almond milk, chillies and rice flour in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Add salt as needed.
  • Add the coriander and pulse once or twice until the leaves are broken down into small pieces but not liquefied.
  • Pour the tofu mixture into the onions and garlic and mix well.
  • Now take the pastry dough and either pat into a greased tart pan, preferably one with a removable bottom, or roll it into a circle and place inside the tart pan, trimming off any overhanging edges.
  • Pour the filling into the pastry shell.
  • Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven about 35-40 minutes until the filling is set and lightly golden.
  • Cool on a rack for about 10 minutes before un-moulding. Serve warm.
