View Full Version : Quiche
I know this is a long shot, but anyone ever make a quiche?
I'm not sure how you would make a raw quiche, but there has to be a way, or macaroni and cheese?

this recipe is from Elaina love. i have this in my book, its really good!
Spinach Mushroom Quiche
This is another one of Elaina Loves scrumptious recipes. When I heard that Elaina had a quiche recipe, I knew I had to have it for this book. It is a very different dish that actually has the consistency of a quiche. Fabulous!
3 medium sized yellow zucchini, chopped (about 3 cups)
2 teaspoons sea salt
1/2 cup olive or coconut oil/butter
1 cup flax meal (about 3/4 cup whole seeds, ground)
1 cup soaked almonds (about 1/2 cup before soaking for 8 hours)
1. Blend the zucchini, sea salt and oil until zucchini is smooth.
2. Add the almonds and continue to blend until the entire mixture is smooth. You may need to use a spatula or celery stick to get the mixture to blend.
3. Pour the blended mixture into a bowl and add the flax meal.
4. Shape into 4 pizza shaped crusts on dehydrator screens covered with Teflex sheets. Dehydrate the crusts at 105 degrees for 4 hours.
5. Remove the Teflex sheets and continue to dehydrate until the crusts are hard. It may take 8 or more hours altogether.
2 zucchini, chopped
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cup cashews
1/3 cup light miso
1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon onion powder
3 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Pinch of cayenne
1 head of spinach, pulsed in a food processor with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and 1 Tablespoon olive oil
10 crimini mushrooms, thinly sliced and marinated in 1/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt and 1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked until soft, then chopped
10 sun-dried olives, pitted and chopped
2 Tablespoons psyllium husk powder (if you can't find powder, just buy husks and grind them in a coffee grinder)
1. Place the zucchini and water in a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Add the remainder of the ingredients except the spinach, mushrooms, olives and tomatoes.
3. Blend until creamy. You may need to use a spatula or celery stick to get the mixture to blend.
4. Pulse the spinach in a food processor until it is well minced.
5. Mix all the prepared ingredients together in a bowl.
6. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes and see how thick it gets. Add more psyllium if necessary to make the mixture thick enough to slice through when it is in the crust.
7. Fill the crusts and warm the quiches in the dehydrator for 1 hour at 105 degrees, if desired.
Note: It's great cold too. This dish will keep three or more days in the refrigerator. You can also dehydrate slices if you have leftovers.
I'm making this this weekend, I'll let you all know how it turns out!

I had to respond to this thread. The only 'Mat' I know with that type of spelling is a Mat I went to college in Indiana with! It just made me think of him!!

Has anyone every tried preparing and then freezing this type of crust for future use, like we use to do with store bought ones? I just wondered, as the crust alone takes a minimum of 12 hours to prepare. It just makes sense to make 2 at a time and freeze one. Any thoughts?
I made this quiche for brunch today and it was quite good. I made 2 large quiches instead of 4 small ones. There were only 3 of us eating, so we only ate one quiche, so I'm going to freeze the second one. I will definitely make it again, but I'll use less psyllium husk powder because it made the filling a bit gelatinous. It would have been better just dehydrated longer to make it thicker but not so jelly-like. Our guest really liked it, but hubby thought the texture was a bit off.
We also had buckwheat granola with almond milk, a big bowl of fresh pineapple, melon, and grapes, and some white tea. Mmmmm -- what a Sunday feast!!
I'm getting excited because, though we had many misses when we first started making complicated raw recipes, we're starting to get a lot better. Last time we had company over, no one liked the food and hubby brought out crackers and dip and cookies, and everyone said, "Yeesssssss!"
