“Niche Quiche”- Vegan Quiche with Carmelized Onions, Leeks and Mushrooms and Millet Crust
Last week I had cooked up a recipe for a friend of mine out of one of her favorite cookbooks.  I had never had vegan quiche, let alone cooked it, but I’m pretty good about trying anything once.  The quiche was phenomenal! I couldn’t wait to get into my own kitchen and cook up my own batch. This time I added a few different veggies and baked the millet crust before putting in the filling.  The quiche was so delish, that I unfortunately only have 1 piece left for tomorrow…if it lasts until then.
What You Need:
2 Onions (1 diced, 1 thinly sliced)
Fresh Thyme (to taste)
1 Clove Garlic (minced)
Salt/Pepper/Cayenne (to taste)
2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp. Tahini
2 Tbsp. Nutritional Yeast
1 Large Leek (cleaned and chopped)
1 Cup Mushrooms (sliced)
1 Cup Millet (rinsed and drained)
1 1/2 Blocks Tofu (I used silken and firm)
3 Cups Water
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
1. In a greased, medium/large pot, sweat the onions and garlic until the onions are translucent.  Add a pinch of salt and chopped thyme.  Then, add the millet to the pot and saute for about 1 minute.  Then pour in the 3 cups of water.  Bring the millet to a boil, then turn it down to a simmer until all the water is absorbed.  The millet should be slightly chewy.
2. While the millet is cooking, blend together the tofu, soy sauce, tahini and 1 tbsp. of nutritional yeast until smooth.  Set aside.
3. When the millet is cooked, press it in to a greased baking dish or tart pan.  Place the tray into the oven for about 10-15 minutes or until millet crust is crisped slightly.
4. While the crust is baking, toss the leeks and onions into a greased saute pan.  Slowly carmelize the veggies, then toss in the mushrooms.  Add in chopped thyme to taste.  Saute until mushrooms are tender.  Then, combine the veggies and tofu mixture in a medium bowl.  Fold the ingredients together until well combined.  Season to taste.
5. Then, remove the crust from the oven and fill the crust with the tofu/veggie mixture.  Top the quiche with the remaining nutritional yeast and bake for 25-30 minutes.  Allow to cool slightly before cutting into it.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on the blog here (though I’ve been continuing to tweet @vivasustainable) and that’s because I got married last weekend (!) and the lead-up has consumed me, to say the least, for the past 8+ months.

My husband and I are very excited to be entering this new phase in our lives, and with all the amazing new kitchen items we’ve received as gifts I look forward to sharing our cooking and food adventures here. Stay tuned!

Note From Barack Obama in My Inbox This Morning

For the first time in our nation’s history, Congress has passed comprehensive health care reform. America waited a hundred years and fought for decades to reach this moment. Tonight, thanks to you, we are finally here.

Consider the staggering scope of what you have just accomplished:

Because of you, every American will finally be guaranteed high quality, affordable health care coverage.

Every American will be covered under the toughest patient protections in history. Arbitrary premium hikes, insurance cancellations, and discrimination against pre-existing conditions will now be gone forever.

And we’ll finally start reducing the cost of care — creating millions of jobs, preventing families and businesses from plunging into bankruptcy, and removing over a trillion dollars of debt from the backs of our children.

But the victory that matters most tonight goes beyond the laws and far past the numbers.

It is the peace of mind enjoyed by every American, no longer one injury or illness away from catastrophe.

It is the workers and entrepreneurs who are now freed to pursue their slice of the American dream without fear of losing coverage or facing a crippling bill.

And it is the immeasurable joy of families in every part of this great nation, living happier, healthier lives together because they can finally receive the vital care they need.

This is what change looks like.

My gratitude tonight is profound. I am thankful for those in past generations whose heroic efforts brought this great goal within reach for our times. I am thankful for the members of Congress whose months of effort and brave votes made it possible to take this final step. But most of all, I am thankful for you.

This day is not the end of this journey. Much hard work remains, and we have a solemn responsibility to do it right. But we can face that work together with the confidence of those who have moved mountains.

Our journey began three years ago, driven by a shared belief that fundamental change is indeed still possible. We have worked hard together every day since to deliver on that belief.

We have shared moments of tremendous hope, and we’ve faced setbacks and doubt. We have all been forced to ask if our politics had simply become too polarized and too short-sighted to meet the pressing challenges of our time. This struggle became a test of whether the American people could still rally together when the cause was right — and actually create the change we believe in.

Tonight, thanks to your mighty efforts, the answer is indisputable: Yes we can.

Thank you,

President Barack Obama
