In my quest to eat less animal products I decided to make a vegan version of one of my favorite breakfast foods. Quiche is notorious for being a little on the decadent side, but this recipe packs all the flavor with a lot less fat and cholesterol. Many brands of eggs often market their product as being “free-range” or “cage-free”, and even organic eggs may have some inhumane practices involving the egg production. Most often the hens are kept in large, dark crowded sheds with very little room to move around.
Though they are not in cages their lives are usually a far cry from the artistic depictions of old-fashioned farms on the packaging. If you do eat eggs try to buy local and if possible visit the farm and see how the animals are being treated for yourself. In the meantime you can give this veggie spin on an old classic a try. Your taste buds, your conscious and your heart will be in a good place. You can use spinach or any other dark leafy green for this recipe. This yummy pie is loaded with iron and protein. Mushrooms offer a rich source of riboflavin, niacin, and selenium which is a powerful anti-oxidant and cancer fighter.
