Who knew you could make a quiche without eggs??? Well, I promise, you will not miss the eggs in this Tofu and Sundried Tomato Quiche. The smooth creamy texture of the soft tofu along with the secret ingredient Kala Narmak is commonly known as black salt has a naturally high sulfur content giving it a very eggy taste.
