This parve quiche is nice enough to make for Shabbos (don’t tell anyone what’s in it the first time — I didn’t!) and is really easy. the dough can be made in advance and frozen and so can the finished product. Dress it up with mushroom sauce, if desired.

 

Ingredients

Dough

  • 2 cups Shibolim Whole Wheat Flour or white flour

  • 1 cup (200 grams) margarine (use soy-free, if needed) or 3/4 cup oil

  • 3 tablespoons vinegar

Filling

  • 2 tablespoons oil

  • 2 onions, chopped

  • 1 eggplant, sliced

  • 1 can or box mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 tablespoons Knorr Mushroom Soup Mix

  • salt, to taste

  • nutmeg, optional

  • 3 eggs

  • pepper, to taste

Directions

Make the Dough

1.

Mix everything together in a food processor fitted with the steel blade or in a mixer. 

2.

Line the bottom of a 9-inch round pan with dough (see note) and set aside.

Notes:

This amount of dough is really sufficient for two quiches, so divide in half (the recipe above will yield approximately 9 ounces or 250 grams) and freeze half for use later. You can press the whole remaining half into the bottom of the pan here and leave it open-faced, or use one quarter for the base and reserve one quarter to roll out and lay over the top of your quiche, as I like to do.

Make the Quiche

1.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high flame. Add the onions and sauté them until they are soft. Add the eggplant and sauté till they are soft. Add the mushrooms and continue sautéing till they are soft.

2.

Add the water, soup mix, and seasonings. Remove from the flame.

3.

Add the eggs and mix well. Pour into the prepared pan.

4.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 Celsius).

5.

Roll out the dough for top of quiche and cover the filling completely. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden.

Tips:

Choose firm, even-colored eggplants that are heavy for their size and free of blemishes. Caps and stems should be intact with no mold. Eggplant keeps in the fridge for up to five days. There are many varieties of eggplant, ranging from 2 to 12 inches (5–30 cm), from oblong to round in shape. Smaller varieties usually don’t need to be salted before cooking. They also cook more quickly.

Delish! just make sure to put in enough salt😉
I split this in 2 and made one with milk and cheese, and kept the other parev. Both were delicous!
Thank you Brynie for yet another great recipe!

Temperature Is this best served hot or at room temperature?

What I love about quiche is that it can be served at either. I wouldn’t do cold out of the fridge, but when I am hungry I will not always wait for it to come to room temp and feel very happy!!!:)

Add eggs while hot or wait until mixture cools. Recipe doesn’t state whether you add the raw eggs while mixture is hot or to wait until mixture cools and then add eggs?

It’s always a good idea to let it cool a bit in recipes like this. But. If you are in a rush, transfer the items from the pot to a different bowl and add eggs one at a time and mix very quickly till fully combined.
