Mini Tofu Quiche Tartlets
These little tofu quiche are great for picnics or lunch boxes just add salad.
First you will need some shortcrust pastry. As I was stuck for time I used ready made which was easy to use I just cut out individual rounds to fit inside silicon cupcake moulds .
Add to a food processor 1 block of silken tofu,1 tablespoon of lemon juice,1/4 teaspoon of turmeric,1 tablespoon of melted coconut butter,2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast,2 tablespoons of tamari and salt and pepper to taste. Blend together.
In a pan sautée your filling I chose to use finely diced red onion,tomato,broccoli,shiitake mushrooms and spinach.
When it’s sauteed lightly add this to your mixture. Then spoon into your cases,sprinkling the top with some herbs if you wish.
First bake for around 20mins then remove and allow to cool until the pastry is firm enough to gently remove the silicon cupcake cases.
Then bake again for around another 15 mins to allow the pastry to brown slightly.
They turned out really delicious perfect warm or cold.
