Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C. Begin to press your tofu and set aside until you are ready for it. Grease a 12-cup muffin container and set aside.
In a pan over medium high heat, heat the coconut oil. Add in the mushrooms, spinach, garlic, onions, and 6 of the 7 sun-dried tomato halves, stirring to combine with the oil. Season lightly with salt and pepper to taste. Allow to cook through until the onions are translucent, spinach is shrivelled and mushrooms shrunken, about 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a high powered blender, add the tofu, almond milk, nutritional yeast, sea salt and black pepper, turmeric, and baking powder. If you have any kala namak, add it now. Blend on high until everything is completely smooth and there are no lumps. I blended mine twice to ensure this.
Stir in with a wooden spoon all of the fillings from the pan, plus the chives to combine. You can taste here and decide if you want any more nutritional yeast, or sea salt.
Spoon out the mixture into 12 greased muffin cups, trying to get an even amount of toppings in each. Top each cup with the last of the sun-dried tomato half.
Bake for 35 until quiche muffins until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out mostly clean. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes on the counter in pan. Then, loosen edges with a knife and remove onto a wire rack, so that they can cool completely without getting soggy.
Serve while still warm, or while cold, and enjoy!
*If you have a tofu press, don’t push it down all the way. If you’re using the books and paper towel method (wrap a tofu block in a few layers of paper towel or a kitchen towel then press with books), you only want to press for about 15 minutes, not much longer.
Kala Namak is an Indian spice that adds a lovely eggy sulphur flavour to any vegan egg dishes. It is very powerful so only add a small pinch into your recipes. If you don’t have any, that’s also fine – it’s optional.
How to store: Leftover mini vegan quiches can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. The quiches can be served cold, at room temperature, or warm. Reheat them in a 350ºF oven for about 10 minutes, or heat them in the microwave until warmed through.
How to freeze: You can freeze these quiches for up to 3 months in an airtight storage container or freezer bag. If you’re stacking them, simply place parchment paper between the layers to keep them from sticking to each other. Let them thaw in the refrigerator before serving or reheating.
