🔪Prep Time: 52 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 35 minutes


rice paper bacon

rice paper sheets

3 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or tamari

1 tbsp liquid smoke

2 tbsp maple syrup

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tbsp water

1 tsp smoked paprika

quiche filling

1/4 C chickpea flour

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1/4 tsp baking powder

3/4 C unsweetened nondairy milk

1 brick soft or medium tofu

1 green onion, finely chopped

1 C finely chopped red bell pepper


1Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease the muffin cups of a 12 cup muffin pan generously with vegan butter or coconut oil.

2Combine the marinade for the rice paper bacon in a dish. Have another dish of water standing by. Cut 1″ wide strips of rice paper with scissors, being careful not to break the pieces. If you’re making 12 cups, you’ll need 24 strips of similar size to have a long piece go around the circumference of the muffin cups.

3Place 2 strips of rice paper of similar size together and place in the water, running your fingers along the length to soften up the rice paper and keep the strips together. Once softened, dip in the marinade and coat well. Gently place the strip around the circumference of the muffin cup and use your fingers to stick it to the sides as best as possible. Do this for all 12 cups.

4Combine chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, turmeric, sea salt, ground black pepper, and baking powder together in a bowl for the quiche filling. Once mixed together, add in nondairy milk and fold the batter together until just combined.

5Fold in crumbled tofu, green onion, and red pepper. You can swap these for any other vegetables of your choice.

6Fill the muffin cups, being careful to place the quiche mixture within the confines of the strip of bacon.

7Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the outsides seem crispy and dried out, and the tops of the quiche are golden brown.

8If desired, you can melt some vegan cheese on top and place the cups under the broiler after baking them thoroughly for 1 minute or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
