We love ‘veganizing’ old family recipes, but there are some traditional dishes that are almost impossible to make without certain key ingredients . . . like quiche, which is basically an egg and cheese pie.
Over the years, we’ve made a few unsuccessful attempts trying to create a recipe for vegan quiche that really worked. The flavor was amazing but the texture and consistency wasn’t quite right. There are lots of recipes out there using tofu, and don’t get me wrong – I like tofu – just not in quiche. We were on a mission to create a perfect vegan version of a traditional quiche, capturing just the right texture and taste but without tofu.
What to use instead of egg in a vegan quiche?
Problem was, up until recently, there just weren’t any suitable egg replacers that worked well for quiche. Until now.
Thanks to the talented geniuses at JUST, we home cooks now have JUST Egg, a vegan egg substitute that requires no mixing or preparation. Straight from the bottle, it’s ideal for egg-centric dishes, like quiche. We found that out when my daughter decided to prepare her grandma’s traditional spinach quiche recipe using JUST Egg instead of eggs. Oh WOW. Nailed it!

What an amazing recipe! I made it again this weekend. Thanks for the game changing brunch idea! Denice K.
What is the best vegan cheese for quiche?
There’s never been a better time to be vegan. With so many fabulous options in non-dairy butters and cheese, you can enjoy many of your favorite traditional cheese-centric dishes using all vegan ingredients.
For this quiche recipe, I suggest using a variety – two or three – different types of cheese. Most vegan cheeses tend to be softer than dairy cheese. That’s ok. Just find cheeses that you like. Here are some of the cheeses we like and have used at various times in this recipe:
- Miyoko’s – Cream cheese, Cheddar, & Mozz
- Kite Hill – Cream cheese & Ricotta
- Chao – Cheese slices
- Violife – Parmesan
- Vromage – Artisan cheese
🥕NOTE: About the cheese shown in the video. For that quiche, I used a specific artisan brand, Vromage, from West Hollywood, California. It was delicious, but you don’t need an artisan cheese to create a great quiche.
This scrumptious, easy vegan quiche recipe is ideal for brunch, lunch, dinner, Mother’s Day or any day!
How to make vegan quiche
I know I say this a lot, but this recipe is easier to prepare than you might think.
First thing you should do is watch our quiche video. It offers lots of helpful tips that will make your quiche baking experience that much better. Be sure to read through the step by step instructions and ingredients list. I also suggest watching my pie crust video.
The key to making a great vegan quiche is having the right ingredients. Find the best vegan cheeses you can. Don’t be afraid to combine flavors!
Make your own pie crust – it’s worth the effort! Check out our recipe for easy vegan pie crust.
You can add or substitute a variety of veggies in this recipe like broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, asparagus, etc. Soft vegetables, like tomatoes, and zucchini will add extra liquid to your quiche so you may need to remove the pulp or let your quiche bake longer, otherwise it may not fully set.
How to make an easy vegan pie crust
I also recommend making your own pie crust. There is nothing quite like a flaky homemade crust. It’s easy to do and so much better than store-bought, but you can certainly use a pre-made pie crust if you don’t have time to make your own. You can see our easy vegan pie crust recipe here, and be sure to watch the video!
