Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Cooling Time 20 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 6 servings
- 3 cups fresh broccoli florets + 2 tablespoons of water
- 1/2 cup chopped spring onions green + white parts
- 1 block extra firm tofu cut into big cubes
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
- up to 1/2 cup soy or oat milk as needed
Prepare the Veggies
Put the broccoli and water into a microwave safe dish, and cook for 3-4 minutes, until the florets are tender. You can also steam on the stove top, if you don't like to use a microwave. Either way, drain off any excess water, then stir in the chopped green onion.
Prepare the Filling
Combine all of the filling ingredients except the soy milk in your blender. Puree until you have a thick batter. You might need to stop and stir a few times to keep things moving, and you can add the soy milk 2 tablespoons at a time if things seem to be stuck. How much soy milk you add depends on your blender. A high speed blender may not need any extra liquid, but a regular blender will probably use some or all of it.
Put it All Together & Bake!
Pour the broccoli mixture into the pie crust. Give the crust a shake, so the veggies are nice and spread out, then pour the tofu mixture over the whole thing. Do the shake thing again, and tap the pie crust on the counter, so that the batter flattens out.
Bake for 30 minutes, then let it cool on the counter for 20 minutes before serving.
