Here are the recipes from Monday's show:
VEGAN & GLUTEN FREE QUICHE
1 cup rice flour
1 cup tapioca flour
2 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
2/3 cup vegetable shortening
6 tablespoons cold water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound firm tofu, drained
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon grapeseed oil
2 cups button mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup diced carrot
1/2 cup thinly sliced leek
1 cup chopped fresh spinach
½ cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup sliced red bell peppers
Ground black pepper
2 teaspoons sweet white miso
1 teaspoon umeboshi vinegar
1 tablespoon of Madison's Original Hot Sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1. To make pastry shell, in a medium bowl, whisk rice and tapioca flour with sugar, salt, and baking powder. Mix in the shortening with fork until the mixture resembles sand. Stir in the water and vanilla extract and work mixture enough to form a soft dough ball. Flatten the ball to a thick disk, wrap and place in the fridge for several hours before rolling. Before rolling, let dough come to room temperature.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll it out slowly, giving it a moment to rest between rolls. If lining 9 ½ inch tart pan, cut out a 12-inch circle of dough. Lay the dough loosely over the pan, and fold extra dough inward to make a double thickness, pressing firmly against the pan to form crust. To prevent puffing, poke the base several times with a fork and bake for 10-15 minutes.
3. To prepare the filling, let the water drain from the tofu for 10 minutes and chop all vegetables accordingly. In a skillet over medium, heat 1 tablespoon of water + grapeseed oil. Add mushrooms, dried basil + oregano, and a pinch of salt. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add carrot + leek + red bell pepper, stir and cook for additional 5 minutes. Lastly, add broccoli, spinach and pepper to taste. Cook until tender. If needed, add remaining water to keep veggies from sticking to the skillet.
4. In a food processor, add crumbled + drained tofu, miso, Madison's Original Hot Sauce, vinegar, rest of the salt, and turmeric processing until smooth. Transfer to medium bowl and fold in cooked vegetables. Pour into lined tart pans. Bake for 1 hour at 375. Let stand 30 minutes before slicing and serving.
