Tofu Quiche

Introduction

Since this recipe replaces cheese with tofu, you can afford to put butter and heavy cream and still end up having guilty-light calorie. I consider this as a French-Japanese dish not only from tofu but from shimeji mushroom (low calorie and rich in fiber.)
I made my own pie crust with millet flour, which is more pro-biotic than wheat flour. Instead, you can use a frozen pie crust (I like spelt pie crust).

Directions

--pie crust --
1. Cut cold butter into small pieces. Add flour and mix with butter until the dough forms small bean-like lumps. Gradually add egg yolk and water. Knead the dough until it forms a ball.
2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough with a roll pin to 12 inches diameter.
3. Wrap the dough around the roll pin and place on a tart pan. The millet flour dough will come out to be a bit crumblier than wheat flour. You can simply patch the holes. Make holes with a fork to prevent the pie crust from rising while baking.
5. Bake it in the oven with 450F for about 8 minutes. Millet flour cook faster than wheat flour.

--filling-
1. Slice onion. Cut spinach and shimeji.
2. Put olive oil in a frying pan and stir fry onion and shimeji for a minute. Add spinach and stir fry until spinach becomes tender but crispy. Crush tofu and add in the filling. Season with salt and pepper. Place on top of baked crust.
3. Mix egg, heavy cream and milk. Pour over the filling in baked crust. Sprinkle parmesan cheese.
4. Bake about 30 minutes in the oven with 350F.
