Recipe for Bell Pepper Quiche

From PlantPure Kitchen Live with Kim Campbell, April 30, 2020.

1 12-oz bag chopped frozen spinach
4 medium sweet bell peppers (red, orange, and/or yellow), halved and de-seeded
14 oz. extra-firm tofu
2 T tahini
2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp. chipotle powder
1/2 tsp. marjoram
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. parsley
2 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a 9" x 13" baking pan with parchment paper.

Boil the spinach for one minute. Drain well and set aside. (This removes excess oxalic acid).

In a food processor, combine the tofu, tahini, onion powder, garlic powder, nutritional yeast, chipotle powder, and herbs. Process until mixture is creamy.

Transfer the tofu mixture to a large bowl. Fold in the potatoes and spinach, until well-incorporated.

Place the pepper halves on the lined baking pan, cut side up. Generously fill each bell pepper half with the tofu filling.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to set for 15 minutes.

To serve, drizzle with Seed Dressing (recipe below).

Notes: When asparagus is in season locally, this is a delicious addition. Cut a few stalks into 1/2" slices.

You can cut the peppers into smaller pieces for appetizers or potlucks.

Seed Dressing

Inspired by the recipe for Healthy Caesar Dressing at

Makes about 2-1/2 cups.

3 T raw green pumpkin seeds
3 T raw sunflower seeds
3 T sesame seeds
1 cup unsweetened soy milk
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp. chipotle chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 T frozen lemon cubes (or fresh juice)
1 tsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos
1 T apple cider vinegar
2 T Dijon mustard (or stone ground)
1 cup water, divided

Put all ingredients except about 1/2 cup water in Vitamix and blend about 1 minute. Pour into quart-size canning jar. Put remaining water in Vitamix and blend for about 10 seconds. Pour into jar. Stir well.

Dressing will thicken up in the refrigerator.
