Mini quiches - eggy or vegan
mini quiche recipe to try my favourite tofu besan omelette mixture in quiches. Sylvia is so into eggs that I suggested she try an egg version. She was so keen that she had a quick chat to me about how to make them and went off to make hers before I had a chance to start. That kid is very confident in the kitchen!
They were good but a bit stodgy so I have suggested some milk in them. I did like crustless ones as an alternative way of serving my omelettes (as well as a gluten free alternative).

Makes about 8
300g silken tofu, drained
6 tbsp besan (chickpea flour),
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon mirin
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion granules
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon black salt
handful of parsley
splash of vegan milk (optional)
8 cherry tomatoes
2 squares (approx 25cm x 25cm) of puff pastry (optional)
Roast tomatoes at 220 C for 10 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients.
Blend filling ingredients until creamy (I didn't use milk but I think it might be good to add to thin the mixture slightly). Cut each piece of pastry into 4 squares. Pinch together the middle of each side to make a windmill sort of cup to place in a greased muffin pan. Alternatively skip this step and make crustless quiches for an easy GF alternative. Pour filling into each pastry cup or greased muffin cup. Place a roasted cherry tomato on top and push a few torn basil leaves around it. Bake at 220 C for 20 minutes.
Sylvia's Mini Quiches

1 sheet puff pastry
about 4 cherry tomatoes
1/3 cup milk
Cut sheet of puff pastry into 4 squares. Grease 4 cups of a 12 muffins pan. Line each muffin hole with a square of puff pastry.
Sprinkle grated cheese in each lined muffin hole. Use scissors to chop a little basil in each and then arrange a couple of quarters of tomatoes in each. Mix egg and milk in a mug with a fork. Use a spoon to distribute this mixture between each muffin hole.
Bake mini quiches at 220 C for about 20 minutes or until they look golden brown and filling is cooked. Sit for a few minutes and then gently remove from muffin cups with the help of a knife. Eat warm or room temperature
