The rhubarb we eat is called “garden rhubarb”, while there are other species with therapeutic properties whose benefits are found in their rhizomes.
Chinese rhubarb (Rheum officinale Baillon and Rheum palmatum) for example, has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine to cure constipation, hemorrhoids and to tone the liver.

Preparation of vegan rhubarb quiche:
- Blanch the rhubarb with boiling water for 5 minutes and drain (discard the water).
- Sauté the onion with the olive oil, the bay leaf and a pinch of salt, over medium heat until golden.
- Add the vegetables with the onion and sauté them.
- Boil for 10-14 minutes the two types of tofu covered with water. Then, the cooking water will be used, so the less we use (enough to boil), the better it will taste.
- Remove tofu and place in a shredding container. Mix a little of the cooking water so that when crushing the tofu we have a thick dough, with the proper texture to mix with the sauté we have prepared.
- Mix the “thick mass” of tofu with the sautéed, as if it were egg, and place in a baking tray.
- Finish cooking in the oven to mix well the flavors.
Original quiche suitable for vegetarians and people allergic to eggs.
Many flavors and vegetables can be combined. We encourage you to try this quiche with sauteed arbequina olives, or capers; Combined with other vegetables. They give a surprising taste that combines very well with the smoked tofu.
