Ingredients

Instructions

  • Make the vegan hard-boiled "eggs" following the recipe linked in post.
  • Carefully wash and blanch the chard leaves in a pot with the lid on for 10 minutes in lightly salted water. Then drain, let it cool and squeeze very well.
  • For the filling of the vegan Pasqualina: break and cream the tofu with a fork, add corn starch, vegan cheese, salt, pepper and nutmeg. As soon as the mixture is well blended, add the slightly chopped boiled chard with a knife.
  • Line a 24 - 26 cm diameter fluted ring cake tin mould with 3 sheets of filo pastry generously brushed with vegetable or olive oil.
  • Fill with 1/3 of the previously prepared tofu and chard filling.
  • Place the vegan eggs and cover with the remaining filling.
  • Close the cake with another couple of sheets of filo pastry and fold the side layers inside.
  • Brush with more oil and bake in a preheated oven at 200 ° C for about 30-35 minutes.
  • Allow the vegan torta Pasqualina cake to reach room temperature before removing from the tin, portioning and serving.
