Slow Cooker Vegan Quiche

I love enjoying weekend brunch, but sometimes don’t want to deal with the actual act of preparing it on a lazy weekend morning. This breakfast is the perfect solution. Mix everything up and pour it into the slow cooker. Four hours later you have a delicious and healthy breakfast that is perfect for a crowd.

Cooking Directions
