Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Spinach Quiche

8 oz (225g) wholemeal flour
Good pinch of salt
4 oz (115g) very cold vegan margarine
Approx. 2 tablespoon cold water
1 lb (450g) fresh spinach, washed and shredded
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 oz (115g) mushrooms, sliced
12 oz (340g) tofu, pressed to remove excess water
1/2 tbsp dried dill, or to taste
Fresh parsley
Seasoning to taste
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
1. Start with the pastry: sift together flour and salt. Use finger tips to rub in the margarine until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add just enough cold water to bind it to a dough, then wrap in cling film and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.

 2. Meanwhile, cook the spinach gently in a saucepan in a minimum of water, or preferably steam it, until just soft.

 3. Heat the oil and fry the onion until it begins to soften, then add the mushrooms and cook for a few minutes more.

4. Either mash the tofu, or blend it to make a thick puree. Add dill, plenty of finely chopped parsley and seasoning. Stir in the mushroom mixture and spinach.

 5. On a floured board roll out the pastry, then use it to line a medium-sized flan dish (or ring standing on a baking sheet). Pour in the tofu, spinach and mushroom mixture, smooth the top and sprinkle with seeds.

 6. Bake at 190C/375F/gas mark 5 for about half an hour, or until the pastry is crisp. Serve hot.
