Veggie Quiche (V) (GF)

Classes and exams are done and I can finally return to the things I enjoy doing! I am happy to announce that my Ebook is in progress and I am very excited to share it with all of you! I am however, having a difficult time deciding which recipes to share on my blog and which ones to keep a secret! 😉 With Easter next weekend I am going to post as many recipes as I can to give you some ideas of delicious food. Food is a very large part of every holiday but us vegans sometimes have difficulty if we do not prepare and plan ahead. I find I really have to get creative thinking about alternatives that suit the occasion. This quiche is perfect for an Easter brunch. Throw together a fruit or veggie salad  and there’s your lunch figured out. You may even be able to trick some of your non-vegan guests!
