What's your favourite vegetarian quiche lorraine-ish recipe?

I'm craving quiche lorraine, and I'm wondering how I could adapt the recipe other than just using fake bacon bits. Maybe mushrooms, or smoked tofu? What do you use for your best cream, eggs, onions and something quiche?

    Broccoli-cheddar quiche

    Mushroom-green onion quiche

    Traditionally quiche is made with gruyere cheese. Although Swiss cheese comes close to gruyere in taste.

    You can add some cheddar, or substitute all for cheddar cheese.

    I don't use cream. I use homo milk or 2% milk.

    Cream is very high in fats, and in some recipes it actually coats the tongue in an unpleasant way. Especially when eating a left-over made with cream.

    I haven't found myself needed to go to bacon fake bits. As odd as it may sound if I really needed to eat some bacon, a very healthy pig using natural curing techniques I consider healthier than soy products that are 90% GMO.

    Options:

    o sweet white onions

    o minced, fresh garlic

    o cilantro, or milder parsley

    o red/yellow/orange bell peppers

    o for some kick, finely diced jalapenos

    o fresh basil

    For adding flavor to the eggs:

    o fresh ground black pepper

    o dried herbs: oregano, basil, powdered rosemary

    o red pepper flakes or cayenne, hot sauce, just a pinch will warm it

    o nutritional yeast (cheese sub)

    o whisk these into the egg prior to cooking

    If you want fluffier eggs, whisk in 1/2 tsp water per egg. Creamier, use milk.

    Basic cooking:

    o bake crust until done

    o saute any veggies you want cooked more than fairly fresh

    o add whisked eggs and the rest of veggies

    o scramble until 3/4 done, add to pie crust

    o optional: grate or sprinkle cheese on top

    o bake until egg is set

    I hope this gives you some good ideas, and you enjoy them. Happy holidays.
