💜Knock the Socks Off Your Dinner Guests With PURPLE, Vegan Quiche!💜

in #food3 years ago

This recipe is going to have you messaging me asking me when you can stop by for dinner!


OH MY GOODNESS! THAT QUICHE IS PURPLE!


quiche22edit.jpg


Hey, a trip to tropical Bali wouldn't hurt you one bit and if you're coming, you better stop in for dinner where I can treat you to an incredible plant based meal that just might make you consider going vegan! 😉

I'm not going to try to lie to you OK?
This is not a recipe for the 5 minutes you have after work to scrape something together. This little number took me into another galaxy where my hands were lost, working on their own, time was passing while I made the homemade crust and cheese but it's more than worth every second and sure as **** will impress the pants off of your family and friends! 😘

Food is my passion and something that really gets me excited is taking a traditional recipe and blending it with my creative spices and making it as we say over here 'same, same but different!'

I want to admit something to you:
Before I changed my diet, I was really sick. I didn't look it, but I was in a tremendous amount of pain that was taking over my life. After I revamped what I was putting into my pie-hole, everything changed and now I am a new woman with a HUGE passion for helping other people find the same freedom I found by offering DELICIOUS ideas to try so you don't have to eat salad to be healthy!

I LOVE FOOD! Let's eat delicious food that's good for us too!

What's better than food that is NATURALLY colorful as well as tummy-tickling delicious? ... I don't even know the answer to that.

Let's make it together! 😘

What you need:


quiche1.jpg


Serves 4
Crust

  • 1 cup flour of choice (I used purple sweet potato flour because it's exotic and beautiful!)
  • coconut oil and water as necessary (start with 1/8 of each)
  • 1 stem of fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tbs oregano

Creamy Center

  • 2 small sweet potatoes pre-boiled (I used purple to match the color scheme going on! Make sure they are soft for use!)
  • 2 cobs of cooked corn (cut the corn from the cob- about 1/2 cup and cook beforehand)
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 1 stem of fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tbs oregano
  • 1/2 tbs sea salt
  • 3 garlic cloves

Veggie Layer

  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 cup of finely sliced mushrooms
  • 1 bunch spring onion
  • 1 onion
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic

Walnut Cheese Topping

  • 1 cup walnuts (soaked overnight)
  • 3-4 sun dried tomatoes
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tbs miso paste
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • filtered water (as needed for desired consistency)

What to do:


Crust

  • Start with your flour and spices and mix them together in a bowl.
  • If you're feeling like you want a short cut: throw the flour mixture into a food processor.

  • Add oil and water slowly in the same proportions, as needed to form a dough.... yes, that is what I did! 😉
    Careful it doesn't get too wet or you'll have to add more flour!

quiche3.jpg


  • Remove the dough from the processor or bowl if you've hand mixed it and ball it up, then press into an oiled up pie pan.
  • Brush coconut oil all over the crust.
  • Place in oven at 180'C for 20 minutes.

Walnut Cheese


  • Take all of the walnut cheese ingredients and pulse in food processor.

  • Keep pulsing until you get a smooth consistency.
  • Taste when it's smooth. For more cheesy flavor add nutritional yeast.
  • Put in the fridge and start to make the next step.

Creamy Layer
So everyone knows that a traditional quiche usually has this eggy-cheese layer that makes up the pie portion... let's take that idea and veganize it!

  • Take all of the cream ingredients (sweet potato, coconut cream, corn, herbs, salt and nutritional yeast and pulse it together in a food processor.

quiche5.jpg


  • You want it to be a creamy consistency but it's also fun to let some of the corn pieces stay intact!

quiche6.jpg


  • Spread this mixture evenly on top of the pre-baked crust.

quiche7.jpg


  • In a skillet with some coconut oil, stir-fry the veggie layer (broccoli, yellow bell pepper, mushroom, onion, spring onion, garlic) on medium until the veggies soften a bit.
    You don't want them to be mushy, just mostly cooked.
  • Pile the sautéed mixture on top of the cream layer.

quiche8.jpg


  • Add a big scoop of walnut cheese into the center and spread out towards the edges.
    (I used half of my mixture for the other pan without doubling the recipe so there will be more cheese than it shows here!)

quiche10.jpg


  • Place in the oven at 180'C for 20 minutes- 30 minutes.
  • (At this point cooking it isn't terribly important since the crust is ready and veggies are close to done but to make it all blend together, putting it in the heat for a little while is the goal!)
  • Let cool down, cut carefully and serve immediately!

Very tasty

Looks amazing! I also love healing foods that nourish and support the body, thanks for sharing this healthy recipe! 🙌💜

Hey @celinacam :) I love them too, it's my biggest passion in life! Plenty more to be shared here, I can promise you that :) <3

nice to see the promotion for vegan food if one turns vegan he is almost disease free

That is what I have found in changing my own diet which is why I am so excited to share recipes like this :)

Frankly speaking even I have experienced the same

You really outdid yourself today, this looks so tasty! I actually think I have everything on hand to make it. You mentioned you were so ill before you changed your eating habits. It really is true, you are what you eat! I'm so glad you figured this out and healed yourself. I look forward to making this one! Thank you! All the best!

Oh that is so much fun to hear! I know sometimes people tell me my ingredients are too exotic but I'm the one who doesn't have the internet to your door services over here ;)

I can't wait to hear how it goes for you! I adored this one and I had a lot of fun crafting it <3

WOWZAS! My mouth is literally filling up with saliva just thinking about this! To much info? Oh well. Anyways if we are ever in your hood I'm going to have to put in a request for this little gem! Now I have to go grab something tasty cause you have made me hungry!

Hahaha well I for one hope you drop by! The creamy center is what got me. I wish I would have just poured tons more of that on so if you go to make it, double that layer for extra delicious orrr when you stop by, we'll do it then ;)

Hope you find yourself a yummy snack! I wish we could send this through the screen! <3

Oh my goodness! This looks/sounds like pure health and deliciousness! I would love to come by for dinner hehe, you know that I would! 🤗Will see when I will head over to Bali, I can't wait that more longer to visit you, sister!😙Enjoy your weeks sweetheart, hugs & kisses from the Netherlands! (Going home today, sitting in the train with my toddler boy, he is enjoying a pear and I have some time to write comments under your posts! 😉)

LOVE!❤

I would seriously love that though I would love to visit you too so you know, we have to start arranging something ;)

Awww how sweet that he's eating a pear, that melts my heart <3 Good mama ;)

Love back to you! XO

Haha he was born vegan, so he knows what's good! 😉Yes we have to do that!💘

I truly believe you are right. I had never felt better than when I was eating a 90% vegan diet. Hey, nobody is perfect!

This looks absolutely exotic!!! I will be contacting you to send some via express mail!

Seriously, if a dish pops my interest like this did, it has got to be worth the trouble to make! Thanks so much!!

You know what, I think it's perfect that you are where you are and feeling great! :)

Hahaha mail is so expensive here or else Lena and I would be exchanging goods all the time ;) I do recommend putting in the time to taste it though, it's really not too bad especially with the helpful processor to speed things up ;) <3

🏆dear @heart-to-heart, this is so absolutely amazing! 🏆

It looks incredible good & yuuuuummmmy!

Thanks for sharing your great recipe of your creation!

Upvoted & Resteemed!

your @mynaturebody 🌱

Hahaha love the gif! Emma stone is adorable :)

You are so welcome, I hope you get to try this! It was scrumptious!

Thanks! Definitely I will give it a try.
This is on my tooop of meal creation list at home.

I appreciate your inspiration a lot! 👍

Such a beautiful dish! I've never seen a crust like that before! I'm new to steemit, just followed ya : ), are there any other accounts you could recommend I follow?

Hey @plantbasedjoe! Nice to meet you, I'm gunna go ahead and assume you're plant based ... just a hunch ;)

I haven't ever seen it either. I didn't even know if it would work lol but it did and it's soooo good!

If you go to my contest #veganwednesday tag, you'll find so many amazing plant based, vegans! That would be my first place to start since all of my favorite people hang out there sharing delicious food :)

Happy to have you here <3

delicious...... i wish someone cook for me this
@heart-to-heart thanks for sharing keep it up

Awww I hope someone makes it for you! If not, you can always try yourself :)

may be it will happend :D BTW your suggestion is best "always try yourself"

Its very true that through our proper eating we can be more healthier and less worry to our health ♥ Thank you for this recipe @heart-to-heart

Hi @honeywanders :) It's very true, if we start with what we eat, our health greatly improves then we have so much less to worry about ;) I'm happy to hear you liked this one! I'm always cooking up a storm so many more will come <3

Hope to see more of your recipe. I'm a PCOS member so this recipe will really help ❤

Looks delicious

That looks yum! Is nutritional yeast different from normal baker's/bread yeast?

Nutritional yeast comes from molasses. It's got a cheesy taste to it and is used in almost all vegan cheese recipes or can be sprinkled on things as is. It's deactivated so it doesn't rise and isn't the same. Brewers yeast comes from the brewing industry (beer etc) and dry yeast or bread yeast is activated which causes it to rise. Hope this helps =D

Thank you. I knew about brewers yeast but had no idea about nutritional yeast or that molasses are used. I'll try to find it in the store.

It's becoming super easy to find nowadays! I use it seriously for everything ;) I hope you find some, you can eat it plain if you want! It gives a huge burst of energy too so it's pretty much one of my favorite ingredients :)

Oh Lawwddd!!! I need to have friends like this.. bring them to me.

Please I want to stop by...

Anytime, just give me about 3 hours notice to make it ;)

Awwwwwn... I followed.. do well to follow back tho. Would love to see more posts from you..

Ah! Do me gently please. Now i am hungry and you stay far away.

Sounds like you'll have to share this recipe and ask someone to make it for you =D

Haha or i should just stare at my screen and hope for a miracle.

wow so nice post i like very much up vote please thanks.

this looks really delicious, need to try it. You are still on Bali right? Just asking because of the Pepito Oregano. 😂

LOL that is so funny you picked that up! I couldn't find oregano anywhere, can you believe it? But yes, I am still here for at least the next foreseeable future, it's captured me ;)

after aee these it makes me hungry.. i want it because already mu mothh.......
.

Wow, this is the nutrition packed vegan dish.
I am not a vegan, but trying to feed my family meat free meals at least once a week.
I only wish that my kids would love eating vegetables. Do you think this is kid friendly?

Hi @hello-sunshine :) You know everyone has to start somewhere and I think it's great that you're trying some new meal options for your family! I have seen in my own family that done right, kids LOVE vegetables. It's mostly programming that teaches them they don't which is a shame so if you hide the veggies, they seem to not know and they like the taste so it ends up working out ;) I would say this is for sure kid friendly but remember to phrase it in a fun way. LOOK AT THIS COOL PURPLE PIE KIDS! ;) Good luck! <3

Wow, what a tasty looking quiche, and colourful to boot!

I love adding colors to everything, it's so much more fun, and healthy for you ;)

Legumes and vegetables is the most special and healthy there is with food. So we are healthy and free of so much toxin I love vegetables. I will try your recipe. Thanks for sharing.
If you like, you can visit my profile and if you prefer, vote .. Thank you.

I'm happy to hear you liked the recipe! It's a healthy version of something that a lot of people grew up loving! Great job on changing your diet, I hope you are feeling happy and healthy! Good luck with the recipe <3

Wow wow wow! This looks absolutely AMAZING!! Going to be trying this one! Thanks for sharing, lovely lady!

Awesome :) I can't wait to hear how you like it ;)

I like a cake

driving through. Hey Val, can i stop by for dinner?

Ummmm yes! Anytime at all my dear <3

Yessssss! You are too adorable. Thank you.

awesome..... your food post.... @heart-to-heart

How did you make this post? Did you use HTML? I love the layout and format and want to make posts formatted similarly to this however I am not sure how to do this on steemit. I am very new to steemit.

Hi @diewelle welcome to Steemit!! The formatting tool already programmed into Steemit is called Markdown! That's what is built in whenever you go to write a post so it's just simple coding that enables you to manipulate it to be centered, bold, italic etc. It took me a while to learn but all of my posts have to be done individually by hand (and it takes me hoursssss lol) I am sure if you search how to format a post will come up that can teach you instead of me trying to explain it all here but if you need more help, feel free to message me =D Good luck!

super foods, thank you

The care and love that went into this recipe is simply astounding. You deserve every Steem of the payout. I would love a big scoop of that walnut spread. mmm

Hi @fruitdaddy! You know I get lost in my own world when I am creating my recipes. I spend most of my waking hours crafting plant based foods ;) The walnut spread... I cannot even tell you. Damnit. I actually got hungry thinking about it and I have just finished lunch :) I really get a kick out of making everything from scratch, so happy to hear it's being appreciated :)
