For the record, this has become more about my inability to keep good recipe records than helping you eat better. Just saying. My recipes are basically a series of scribbled Post-it notes with no identifying titles. Just lists of ingredients and maybe a temperature or time suggestion.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 TB sugar
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- random herbs like thyme, rosemary, and maybe some marjoram or oregano
- ¼ cup butter (or vegan alternative)
- 1 cup milk (or unsweetened soy or almond or hemp milk)
Mix all that stuff in a bowl, dust a surface with some flour & dump out the blob of mix. Roll or smush or whatever — use more flour if necessary — until it kind of looks like a flattish blob. Cut up (feel free to use a biscuit cutter if you’re feeling fancy, but I assure you people will eat them if you don’t) into biscuit-y sized pieces. Put the pieces on a Sil-Pat or parchment paper on a pan, toss them in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes at 450 degrees (F).
Vegan (or not quite) Quiche
- 1-½ cups flour (your pick, I used wheat)
- ½ cup oil (canola, grapeseed, whatever)
- ¼ cup ice water
- ½ teaspoon salt
Stir, roll, pinch in the pan(s).
- 1 package of tofu (firm or extra firm)
- some turmeric (makes it yellowish)
- splash of white wine (optional)
- spinach, mushrooms, peppers, onions, garlic (whatever makes you happy)
- other herbs or spices you choose — basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary, sage, any of those are good choices… if in doubt, sniff & see what smells good.
- cheese (almond, rice, dairy — also optional)
Throw it all in a food processor and process the crap out of it. Pour it in the pans on top of the crust. Toss it in the oven for 45-55 minutes at 400 degrees.
