This JUST Egg Quiche looks and tastes like the real thing! It's also incredibly easy to make, requiring just one bowl and one pan to bake it in for easy kitchen cleanup. It makes a wonderful dish for breakfast, brunch or even dinner!
What is JUST Egg?
Just Egg is an egg-free alternative made from mung beans. You can find it in stores near the eggs in the refrigerated section.
This yellow liquid scrambles well and can be used to replace eggs in pretty much anything recipe that calls for eggs, except when you need to separate egg whites and egg yolks. Just Egg is like if the two were mixed together to become an egg scramble.
This post is not sponsored, I just genuinely like the product and find it a convenient vegan egg alternative. Not only is great for quiche but it makes a delicious french toast too!
Just Egg contains oil and while I typically cook oil free, the majority of the product is water and mung beans so I don't worry too much about this. If you prefer to be oil-free, I have an entire article on vegan egg replacements for both cooking and baking. Many of them you probably already have at home.
I also have a whole food plant-based vegan frittata made with chickpea flour that would be a great alternative if you can't find Just Egg or want a whole food plant based alternative.
- 1 bottle of Just Egg—this is the perfect amount to make one egg-free quiche!
- Nutritional yeast—makes a great cheese substitute. You can also omit or use shredded vegan cheese if you prefer.
- Asparagus—a great Spring vegetable that pairs perfectly in quiche. Feel free to use any produce you have on hand! Zucchini, tomatoes, kale, mushrooms, onion, etc. would all be great in this easy vegan quiche.
- Kala Namak—also known as black salt gives it an eggy flavor. Use regular salt if you can't find it.
- Nutmeg—this is a traditional seasoning in quiche but a little goes a long way. You don't need more than ⅛ teaspoon to add a depth of flavor to this Just Egg quiche.
- Pre-made pie shell—I used a 9-inch whole wheat pie shell from Wholly Wholesome that's both dairy and egg-free. Any 9-inch pie shell will work.
How to make quiche with JUST Egg
The following step-by-step tutorial shows the process of making this vegan Just Egg Quiche. Exact times and temperatures are available in the recipe card below.
Start by preparing the pie shell if using a pre-made one. Preheat oven to 400F, if using frozen pie shell, allow to thaw at room temp for 10-20 minutes, then prick the bottom and sides of the shell with a fork. Bake for 10-14 minutes until golden edges start to form. Remove from oven and turn down heat to 375F.
Meanwhile, prepare the asparagus. Wash asparagus, cut off woody ends and chop into ½ - 1 inch long pieces. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add the entire bottle of Just Egg along with all the seasonings and mix well.
In the baked pie shell, add the sun-dried tomatoes, spinach and asparagus. Pour over the Just Egg mixture. Top with additional vegetables if desired for decoration.
Bake on the center rack on a baking tray for 45-50 minutes. If the crust is getting too dark, cover with a crust protector or strip of foil to prevent burning. I took mine out after around 35 minutes to cover, then continued baking.
It's done when the quiche is fully set in the center. Use a fork or knife to check the center for doneness. If it comes out clean it's done. Remove from oven an allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
Quiche is one of those dishes that can be served hot or cold. Feel free to enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator and save for later.
What can you use instead of Just Egg?
If you can't find Just Egg you can use chickpea flour and tofu to create a similar egg texture. I made a vegan frittata using those two together and it was delicious!
Can this vegan quiche be made in advance?
Yes, it's great for meal prep and can be made in advance. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a few days and reheat or serve cold.
Can you make this Just Egg Quiche into mini quiches?
Absolutely! If making into mini quiches using a muffin pan, reduce time to 30 minutes until fully set.
