Classic Broccoli Quiche


I just realized that my food has been taking on the shape of pie lately. Weird. Anyway, this delicious dish is one of the lunch items I have included in my latest meal plan, which is in “beta” right now. The recipe comes from “Vegan Brunch.” It’s one that I’ve been wanting to make for a while, but was inspired to do so after reading a post on Luminous Vegans’ site. I opted to make my own pie crust, but I wouldn’t blame you one bit for buying a store-bought crust. The final result is so, so good and really does taste very similar to its egg-based counterpart. I served mine with a kale and apple salad with a lemon and olive oil dressing.

Want to know a trick for tenderizing raw kale? Give it a massage. First remove the woody stem, then tear the leaves apart with your hands. Submerge the kale in water to give it a rinse. Finally, massage the kale by giving handfuls of it a squeeze. Dark spots will appear on the leaves, which means the fibrous veins are breaking down and the leaves are becoming more tender. Cool, huh?
