I'd first like to say I apologize in advance for anything that may seem thick headed. I'm not a vegetarian nor vegan. I'm trying to learn a couple new skills using ingredients I'm not used to. I had a bad experience at a restaurant and I figured I shouldn't complain. That instead I should make food that I enjoy and hopefully others will too. I plan on just making notes and tweaking recipes here. Any advice or comments on the recipes would be very much appreciated. -SkunkFour __________________________________________________________________________ Tofu Quiche (Classic french tweaked) Pie Crust (makes 1 double crust or 2 thinner crusts) 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour 3/4 cup coconut oil chilled til solid (or non dairy margarine) 1/2 cup all vegetable shortening chilled 1 tsp salt 2 tbsp raw sugar grinded (use whatever sugar you like) 6-8 tbsp ice cold water Directions -Sift flour, salt and sugar together. -Cut the coconut oil and vegetable into squares and add to dry ingredients. -Using food processor or forks blend together until the flour has coarse crumbs -Add water tbsp at a time until dough starts to hold barely and you can begin to work it into a crust.

Filling 1 lb firm tofu drained 1/2 lb mushrooms chopped 1/3 cup finely chopped onion 2 cloves of garlic minced(maybe) 1/2 cup soy milk 3/4 tsp white pepper(whatever works, I find white pepper adds a nice kick) 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 1/4 tsp dijon mustard 1 cup roasted cherry tomatoes diced with a little olive oil 3/4 cup shredded or crumpled nut cheese Directions -Preheat oven to 400 degrees poke holes in base of pie crust and bake for 10-12 minutes -Saute onions, mushrooms, garlic until onions are translucent and soften -Blend tofu, soy milk, mustard, pepper, salt, nutmeg and blend til smooth. -Fold vegetables and cheese into tofu mix until well mixed.
