Quiche and Figs

August 26, 2016

The last quiche recipe I posted kind of went crazy, it’s bee a while and people are still sharing the image all over, which I’m still pretty amazed by. This one might not look as spectacular but it definitely tastes more than delicious.

It’s pretty much a traditional quiche, but vegan of course. Super thin with a delicious paste crust, with a cheesy rosemary filling that reminds me of goat cheese and some juicy fresh figs on top. Such a good combination. It’s also quite easy to put together. The only thing is to make sure the coconut oil doesn’t melt while preparing the dough, otherwise it won’t get the flaky texture you are looking for in a pastry crust.

Lets get baking!
