Sometimes you just want to indulge, ya know?

This is a (vegan!) quiche inspired by a luscious, creamy spinach artichoke dip. If you need to impress Holiday guests, tofu-fear-mongers, or just want a hearty dinner reminiscent of an old comfort food — we’ve got you covered.

Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip Quiche (makes 2)

  • 2 pre-baked vegan pie crusts (*baked about 15 minutes)
  • 1 block firm tofu, water drained
  • 8 oz. vegan cream cheese (one container of Tofutti brand)
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil, to sautee veggies
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 can artichoke hearts (not in oil)
  • 1 bag spinach

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, blend tofu, cream cheese, garlic powder, nutritional yeast and almond milk. Add mixture to a large bowl.

In a pan, sautee the red onion in a little olive oil until soft, about 2-3 minutes. While thats cooking, chop the artichoke hearts into halves or fourths. (Don’t cut too small; you want big chunks of artichoke!) Add to the pan with onion for 1-2 minutes. Rough chop the spinach, unless you’re using baby spinach. Add spinach to the pan and cook at medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes. The spinach will get much smaller in volume once it cooks.

Add the veggies to the creamy mixture, and mix everything well. Pour 1/2 of the mixture into each pie crust. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees, and the top of the quiche will start to turn golden-brown.

*I used a pack of two pre-made, frozen vegan pie crusts. Check your freezer section and read ingredients. I pre-baked these for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Do this in the beginning and leave the oven at 350 to bake the assembled quiche.

CAN BE MADE GLUTEN-FREE using a gluten-free pie crust!  One viewer wrote:

“I made two and took one to a Thanksgiving party Wed night and nobody knew it was gluten-free or vegan. In fact, a few ladies asked me for the recipe so gave them your blog address. 

The second one I froze and baked it for brunch today where there were a lot of meat eaters, and the first thing gone was the quiche :) They almost fainted when I told them it was vegan.”

… Hey, now that’s nice to hear.

A little slice of heaven! I mean, Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip Quiche.

  1. You are amazing! This looks absolutely indulgent. I have a soft spot for those super bad-for-you spinach & artichoke dips, so this looks like the perfect way to satiate my craving in a guilt-free way. I love the way it bakes up so puffy & moist looking, just like a traditional quiche!

    • Hey girl! Yeah, and you know what? If you did it WITHOUT a crust, like say in a casserole dish, it really wouldn’t be all that unhealthy! In the entire amount (2 quiches worth) you are pretty much using one block of tofu and one container of cream cheese (those are smallish and, while a processed food, really not terrible) so… I don’t know, I’m going to try that next time though!
