Onion vegan quiche

Onion vegan quiche 12

There are a lot of things that could be done with onion: onion soupflamenkuchethin onion tart like pissaladière (one of my favourite use of onions) and now I am sharing with you a vegan onion quiche.

Since I am allergic to egg, I have been trying to find some alternative for making my much love quiche. I tried with tofu, it was great but a little bit too thick for my taste, so then I decided to try my usual recipe and just remove the egg and add more corn flour. So now I have my perfect recipe for still enjoying quiche.

In this recipe of Vegan onion quiche, I added half teaspoon of sugar in order to remove the bitterness of the onion but that is completely optional. I hope you will enjoy the recipe as much as I did.

For making the vegan onion quiche:

  • Peel the onions and chop them
  • In a large pan, heat at medium heat the olive oil
  • When the olive oil is hot, put the chopped onion on it, add the sugar and stir it for 5 to 15 minutes in order to get the onion all soft
  • Cover with a lid when you are not stirring in order to reduce the cooking time
  • Roll out the dough, shape into a tart mould then bake for 10mins
