Just Egg liquid pourable is a game-changer for making so many egg-free recipes! So far I’ve made quiches, omelets, fried rice, fresh pasta, and scrambled eggs with it. I still can’t believe that this egg replacement is made from mung beans!

Just Egg Quiche Recipe

How to Make the Just Egg Quiche

Just Egg quiche is relatively easy to make but there are a few variations to it depending on which route you take. You can make a full quiche, small quiches, or really mini quiches. For the purpose of this recipe, we’ll be making the small quiches in a regular muffin pan. Instructions on how to do the variations will be below.

Fun fact: a lot of the pre-made frozen pie shells you can buy at the grocery store are actually plant-based and egg-free by accident! If you’re keen on making your own pie shell I recommend this recipe!

  1. Grab your muffin pan and lightly grease the inside of the tins with some oil or plant-based butter.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. If you’re using a frozen pie shell instead of from scratch place on counter to thaw. If making one from scratch do it now.
  3. Chop your vegetables (red peppers, onions, mushrooms and spinach) and mix in a bow to combine together.
  4. If you’re using mini pie shells simply add the vegetables in the shell about half way up and top with your favourite plant-based cheese. Then pour Just Egg liquid to cover up to the 3/4 mark of the shell. If you’re using a full pie shell to make small quiches (like I did) it’s still easy. Take your thawed pie shell and smash it into a ball of dough and roll it out and take a large circle cookie cutter and cut out your mini shells from there. (you can just rip circles to it doesn’t have to be professional) Take those mini shells place in the muffin pan and then proceed with the ingredients.
  5. Place the quiches in the oven for 25 min. Check the quiches by stabbing a toothpick through the middle. If it comes up wet put them back in for 5 more minutes.
  6. When they’re ready take them out of the oven and let them cool on a rack for 5 minutes (they’re very hot when they first come out so be careful)
  7. Serve and enjoy!

*Quiche is great at room temperature so don’t worry about making these in advance. But you don’t want to let them just sit out for hours and hours because bacteria is a thing. So stick them in the fridge if they’re sitting out for more than an hour.

One of Just Eggs claims about their products are that they’re a healthier alternative. Although this section will look into the nutrition of Just Egg quiche as a whole (all the ingredients) we’ll also look at the nutrition of Just Egg.

These Just Egg quiches are little powerhouses of nutrition! It might not seem like much, but it’s because that’s the nutritional value per small quiche, generally speaking, you’ll it at least a few or if you’re like me several. So you can multiply those numbers by however many you’re eating. Having 4 of these in the morning is a great way to get 16 g of protein in and only just over 300 calories which is a great start to your day!

Is Just Egg healthy? ‘Healthy‘ is a very subjective and loaded term, however, we’re still able to create a benchmark and determine the nutritional value of something. There is no doubt that ice cream is not healthy but having one scoop isn’t going to have any negative effects (unless you’re allergic). Similarly, no one is disputing that spinach is healthy but it still needs to be incorporated into a well-balanced diet as it doesn’t contain everything you need (and no food ever will). All that to say, it depends.

Comparing Just Egg with chicken eggs on a per calorie basis one of the biggest differences you’ll notice is is the fact that Just Egg products (like almost every vegan product) contain zero cholesterol. Otherwise, they are almost virtually identical nutritionally, shockingly so actually.

This brings in the argument that if you can get the exact same nutrition, and even a bit better, without sacrificing taste (because Just Egg is spot-on) and avoid bringing animals into the mix, then why wouldn’t we? Food for thought!

Commonly Asked Just Egg Questions

Can you bake with Just Egg product?

Yes! The properties of Just Egg products are nearly identical to eggs. As detailed in this recipe where we do in fact bake them and it worked perfectly. We’ve also had success making pasta with Just Egg products as well as including them in baked goods!

Is a frittata just a crustless quiche?

The crust is a major difference as a quiche has a crust and frittatas don’t but it’s not the only difference. Frittatas are typically fried in a skillet and sometimes finished off in the oven, whereas quiches are solely baked in a pan in the oven.

Yes, Just Eggs are Keto-friendly! With only 1g carbs per serving and 12g of protein, Just Egg is more than suitable for a keto diet. Not to mention Just Egg have zero cholesterol which for someone on a Keto diet they would be taking in larger quantities of.

    Delicious!! I’ve been looking for a vegan quiche recipe that still has the flaky outer cup with the egg-like consistency inside. I’m super happy at how these turned out. I can’t wait to serve them to friends at brunch this weekend!!
