instructions

For the quiche crust: Knead all quiche crust ingredients into a soft but firm dough. Mold into a small disc and set aside for 1 hour. After one hour, place dough on to a parchment lined table and roll out to fit your baking dish. Place crust into a parchment lined baking dish, tuck in the edges with your fingers. Pierce the dough with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes in a 176 C/350 F degree oven.

For the filling: Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add olive oil and sauté onion until golden brown, stirring often. Add grated sweet potato and stir from time to time until they become softer.

In a blender combine cashews, tofu, mustard, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Add water gradually until the mixture becomes a thick batter (similar to pancake batter). Pour the blended mixture into the sweet potato mixture and stir gently until combined.

Pour filling into prepared quiche crust. Top with sliced tomatoes. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Allow quiche to rest for a few minutes before slicing.Enjoy!
