June month's Egg less Baking Challenge

Baking quiche is quite new for me....when I got the recipe for last months challege,,,,I was thinking that I will not do this,,,,but after searching in you tube,,I got many recipe for preparing Quiche....

And I am so so busy now days,,,,that not able to do any work only,,,so I was postponing this from quite few days..but now that all are up with their recipe,,,I grabed all my energy and yesterday completed this challenge....

While baking this quiche I noticed that its so easy and simple recipe..and I was very much worried about the result,,,,but beleive me it was such a great hit which I never expected..... And it got over yesterday only.....

Thanks to Gayathri who made me to bake this quiche,,,or else I never ever had tried this recipe .....and here is my recipe...

As we don't like cheese much I have used very little cheeses in my recipe....u can add as much as u like....


For Crust:
1 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour
4 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup water
1/4tsp of salt

For Quiche Filling:

1TBSP of olive oil
1 pack fresh spinach leave, cleaned and stemmed(I have used baby spinach)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinomom

1 small bell pepper sliced
2-3 slice cheese
Firm tofu 100 gm
milk 1/2 cup
pickled olive 10 chopped
1 tsp Red chilly flacks
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup of frozen sweet corn


to prepare crust

Preheat oven to gas mark 6/400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a quiche dish with non-stick cooking spray.

mix the salt and flour in a big bowl and add olive oil mix it with hand properly(it should resemble coarse sand) and then add half of the water mix well to make dough,,if the flour is still dry add another half of the water and knead to make dough..

now roll the dough(keep a plastic sheet under the dough) in circle around 1cm thick and arrange this crust sheet in the pic dish...prick the base with the fork and bake for around 20-25 mins.

to prepare filling

heat oil and add sliced bell pepper saute for 1min then add chopped onion again for a min and then add spinach leaves mix well and turn of the heat. Now add the salt pepper, chilly flacks and chopped olive mix well and keep aside to get cool.

add the tofu in a blender and make smooth paste. add this past to the filling mixture and mix then well by adding milk. Now the filling is ready.

Take the crust ,chop one slice of cheese sheet and keep in the base of the crust and then fill with the filling,,,,again chop another 2 sheet of cheese and keep on top of it......Now bake the quiche for about 55 mins to 60 mins.

Once it truns brownnish in color its done....turn of the oven and the spicy savory Spinach Tofu Eggless Quiche is ready to serve.......
