This delicious quiche recipe uses tofu instead of eggs for a healthy, low-fat, dairy-free, and cholesterol-free vegetarian and vegan breakfast , weekend brunch or dinner option. The recipe contains nutritional yeast which is sometimes called a superfood because even a little of this high-protein, low-fat, nutrient-dense food provides a host of vitamins and minerals.

More research is necessary to confirm the benefits of nutritional yeast. However, it seems that it may help boost energy and maintain vitamin B-12 levels, as well as supporting the immune system, dermatological health, and pregnancy. Not all nutritional yeast is fortified with vitamin B-12, so it is important to check the label for ingredients.

Nutritional yeast is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and high-quality protein. Typically, one-quarter of a cup of nutritional yeast contains: 60 calories , 8 grams (g) of protein, 3 g of fiber,11.85 milligrams (mg) of thiamine, or vitamin B-1,9.70 mg of riboflavin, or vitamin B-2,5.90 mg of vitamin B-6, 17.60 micrograms (mcg) of vitamin B-12. It also contains vitamin B-3, potassium, calcium, and iron.

This recipe uses 1 protein serve per slice so you could use once slice as a breakfast option or double up for a dinner serving.
