I have a question about the recipe "Quinoa and Kale Crustless Quiche" from Hilarybee. Can this be made dairy-free? Would Tofutti Cream Cheese work? Can the shredded cheese be omitted?

I've made this a lot, but never dairy free. I've used yogurt in place of the cream cheese though. Maybe you could use soy yogurt? And I think you could leave out the cheese, but it adds a lot of flavor,so if you're going to do that, increase the onions and garlic and throw in some chopped fresh herbs that you like.

I've made this recipe several times too and I think tofutti cheese would work. You could also try daiya brand which is tapioca based and melts really well. You can find it at Whole Foods.
Hi Carolyn, sorry I missed this. For next time, I think you could probably skip the cheese altogether. The Egg and quinoa are really the binding agents, and I think the quiche will be looser without cheese, but I think it will still hold up. I've used the Tofutti cream cheese, and I think that would work, too.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
