Broccoli quiche is a crunchy yet soft inside and decadent main dish. It is packed with protein (tofu) and anti-oxidants (broccoli). I used fresh broccolini but you can use frozen broccoli that has been thawed. Nutritional yeast gives the "cheesy” flavor in the vegan kitchen. It goes a long way, combined with the mustard and the tofu it creates a wonderful creamy texture. You can also use this batter with a different vegetable, such as cauliflower, roasted pumpkin, etc. My friends and family love it! It is extremly easy to make and so delicious.

Oil the bottom of a pie pan with olive oil, pour in the batter, sprinkle with bread crumbs and drizzle some olive oil on top. Bake for about 50 minutes until golden brown. If you use the individual cupcake size mold, then you'll need less time in the oven, About 30 minutes.
