Delicious Quiche: No Eggs, No Dairy, No Kidding!

Eggs are inextricably associated with Easter… however eggs have been colored, exchanged and eaten as an element of the rites of spring long before the Christian era.

Quiche can be a perfect menu item for Easter Brunch and this vegan quiche contains none of the artery clogging saturated fat and cholesterol of the traditional ingredients.

Quiche is thought of as a complex French classic that requires a bit of skill and lots of fatty ingredients. While there are several variations of the basic theme, the rich custard base is a constant.

Traditionally, high-fat ingredients loaded with cholesterol, such as cream, eggs and cheese are baked in a rich pastry shell. Certainly, quiche made in this way would be considered far too heavy in fat, calories and cholesterol for today’s health conscious cook. …read more of Vegan Broccoli Quiche ~Perfect for Easter Brunch! here

Spiced Tempeh with Confetti Vegetables

 

Superfoods, by definition are nutrient-dense and considered especially beneficial for health and wellbeing.

A plant-based or vegan diet is one that avoids all animal products.  Optimally healthful and really delicious, a balanced diet of vegetables, legumes, grains and fruit has been shown to reduce the risk of many types of cancer, heart disease, obesity and related conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes.

The vegetable kingdom is a rich source of antioxidants that have tremendous health benefits and cruciferous vegetables are highly prized for powerful anti-carcinogens, such as indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane.

A number of substances found in cruciferous vegetables have been linked to reduce the risk of various types of cancer.
