Quiche Laverne 

Yield: one 10-inch quiche (serves 6)

2 C potatoes, shredded
1/4 C onion, grated
3 T unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 head cauliflower, broken into bite-
size florets steamed (about 4 1/2 cups)
1(10.5 oz.) pkg. firm lowfat* silken tofu
1 1/4 C water
1/3 C nutritional yeast flakes
1/3 C quick-cooking rolled oats
4 T arrowroot or cornstarch
3 T fresh lemon juice
1 T onion granules
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic granules
1/8 tsp. turmeric
1/2 C scallions, thinly sliced
2 T vegan bacon bits (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400F. For the crust, place the potatoes and onion
in a bowl and toss together. Sprinkle on the flour and salt and toss
again, using a fork or your hands. Pat into a non-stick or well-oiled
10-inch pie plate, using your fingers to spread the mixture evenly
over the bottom and up the sides. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the
oven and spray oil over the crust. Return the crust to the oven to
crisp and bake for 15 minutes more, until the surface is lightly
browned. Let cool while you prepare the filling. Reduce the oven
temperature to 375F.  Prepare the cauliflower and steam until
tender. Refresh under cold water to stop the cooking. Drain and
transfer to a large bowl.

Place the next ten ingredients in a blender, and process until the
oats are finely ground and the sauce is completely smooth. Pour into a
saucepan along with the scallions, and bring to a boil, stirring
constantly. Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook, beating
constantly with a wire whisk or wooden spoon, until very thick and
smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in vegan bacon bits. Pour over
the cauliflower, mixing well. The sauce will be thick and stretchy.
Spoon the filling into the crust, and dust the top liberally with
paprika. Bake for 25-50 minutes, until golden brown. Let rest for 10
minutes. serve warm or at room temperature. This is also delicious
cold the following day.
