What would you have instead of quiche?

Hi all, thought I would mine the knowledge of the new vegan board for inspiration!

Family are bringing dinner tomorrow.
We are having quiche and salad.
I am not vegan yet, but am transitioning over. It wouldn't be the end of the world if I ate quiche, but I'd quite like a quick and easy alternative if I could get one.

I'm working tomorrow so making my own vegan quiche would be just a bit too much hassle, but what else would you have? Another salad but more proteiny, like beans or chickpeas? Another pie like thing?

Thanks in advance!

Mmm, nice thank you Dottie.
Oooh, yes - Linda Mac sausage rolls may be a winner. But think I may have to do a bean salad to supplement once the kids spot the sausage rolls!

I haven't tried this recipe but it does look good - vegan quiche.

I know I've got a recipe somewhere for a vegan quiche but I can't find it - too many cookery books and I can't remember which one it's in Blush.

I would have something pastry based so I didn't feel left out! Maybe something like a puff pastry tartlet with sliced tomatoes, courgettes, olives and pine nuts baked till crispy and delicious!

Thank you Split - I will try that quiche recipe one evening when I have more time.

You're right MsHippo, it was the pastry mouthfeel I most wanted to recreate. I went for the vegan sausage rolls in the end.
Definitely going to try your tartlet recipe though (I am partial to pastry!!)

It's delish! And really easy to add a bit of feta/Parmesan or a cracked egg on top for anyone not so vegan-inclined. The only thing is making sure it doesn't go too soggy so drain a bit of the juice off the tomatoes after you slice them and don't layer too thickly. A nice drizzle of olive oil before it goes in is good too, or a little drizzle of pesto/basil oil if you have a vegan one.
