Vegan Broccoli Quiche
This egg-free quiche recipe uses tofu instead of eggs for a healthy and low-fat vegan breakfast.

Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.
Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat and sautee the onion, green pepper, broccoli and mushrooms until cooked, about 8 to 10 minutes.
In a blender or food processor, blend the tofu, nutmeg, turmeric, basil, salt and soy milk until smooth. Stir the vegetables and the tofu mixture together and add pepper to taste.
Pout the batter into the pie crust. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted just off-center into the quiche comes out clean.
