Quiche is one of my go-to recipes for dinner because they're so easy to make, and since you can add just about anything, you never get bored with the flavor. Tomatoes with fresh picked basil from the garden is one of my absolute favorite treats in the Summer, and that delicious combo was the inspiration behind this fresh tasting, protein-packed quiche.

1 tablespoon olive oil
15 ounce block of tofu, diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Salt and pepper to taste

3/4 cup plain soy milk (or regular milk)
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 premade whole wheat pie shell

- Remove from heat and stir in the tomatoes.
- In a separate bowl whisk eggs, soy milk, fresh basil, and pepper.
- Pour the tofu, leek, and tomato mixture into the pie shell. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top, and then pour the egg mixture over that.
