Quiche Florentine with Artichoke Hearts and Sun-Dried Tomatoes
The biggest challenge in making an oil-free quiche is achieving a nice flaky crust. A combination of whole wheat flour, potato flour, and almond flour does the trick here with a little help from flaxseed meal. Nutritional yeast adds cheesiness to the creamy tofu filling while spinach lends green goodness, and artichokes hearts and sun-dried tomatoes add flavor. With the comforting goodness of traditional quiche with a lot less fat, this heart-healthy quiche is one to add to your weekly rotation.
