I thought this recipe was excellent. I did make a few changes though. I used a 14oz package of tofu, rinsed and patted dry. I used 2/3 cup soy milk and about 1 1/2 cups pepperjack cheese which gave it a nice kick. I added mushrooms, a little dry mustard and a little nutmeg. And finally, instead of the crust I used the mandolin to slice some sweet potatoes and made a 'crust' out of that. I probably used about 2 tbsp olive oil in the bottom of the pan to prevent sticking. I cooked it on the bottom rack at 400 for about 45 minutes until the sweet potatoes looked golden brown from the bottom. Yumminess!

I used fresh spinach - I am a vegetarian who needs a balanced set of vitamins and minerals to be happy :) so I added in a wealth of other vegetables - finely chopped brocolli, carrots, zucchini, red pepper (despite protests from other reviewers, brocolli really does add something to this recipe). My only warning would be there are many many subtle differences between tofu's - make sure you use a less bitter/sour type (some are relatively flavourless and you cannot taste the fermented flavour as much - these are better for this recipe).

This is a delicious recipe for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. I have played around with it a bit at times adding different seasonings or different cheeses, but have remained true to the original poster. This is a keeper and great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, picnics, you name it. As a vegetarian, it was an easy to make meal that tasted great and I couldn't taste the tofu. In fact, I don't necessarily like the taste of raw tofu, but if you compare that to say chicken or any other meat that you simply stuck in the oven without proper preparation or seasoning, you probably would say it tasted pretty bad, too. If you are unsure about it, honestly try it once before saying that you don't like it. It's a great dish that everyone will enjoy. Just save yourself some grief and don't tell anyone that it has tofu in it. :) UPDATE: I highly recommend prebaking the crust for at least 10 minutes to get your crust to hold up well for this recipe. If you don't, it's ok, but it is even better when it is prebaked.

This dish goes so fast at my house that I double the recipe, omit the crust and bake in a casserole dish.

For those who are looking to cut the fat even more than just getting the eggs out - I substituted the recipe to include skim milk, crumbled feta cheese (4 ounces) and grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese (6 tablesppons), and it turned out pretty well. I could'nt tell you the fat content difference, but the calorie content have been cut to less than half (136 calories per serving). I also drained the tofu between paper towels, afterwards let it sit on tap water for a few minutes then drain it again - it was virtually "tofu-taste"-free as a result.

The Texture was amazingly like a normal Quiche. The taste was wonderful, I went without the crust as one of the other posts had suggested. It was wonderful, will definitely make again! To add a little "egg" coloring I added 1tsp of powdered Mustard. Very good!

This was pretty good, but next time I would use more than the suggested 8 oz of tofu, as the tofu-to-spinach ratio was definitely not to my taste- the quiche was almost entirely green! In my area, most tofu comes in 12 or 16 oz packages, anyway.

This was really easy to make and turned out pretty well. I would recommend less garlic and more salt and pepper as it seemed pretty bland with just what the recipe called for. I only used half of the spinach in the package. I would also suggest getting a tofu that does not have a strong taste, as mine had that tofu taste, which my family did not like. One last thing I would do would be to cook it a little longer so that the crust is really brown. The 30 minutes that the recipe called for made my quiche a little mushy. I had to cook it longer, then it was perfect. As far as the crust goes, I would suggest getting the Marie Calendars Pie Crust, it was great! Otherwise, it was very good and easy to make with a few revisions for personal taste :)
