   Crust:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grind oats to a
   coarse flour n a blender or food processor. Place
   ground oats in a large bowl. Stir in whole wheat
   flour, white flour, salt and baking powder. Drizzle
   1/4 cup canola oil over flour mixture and mix lightly;
   add more oil of necessary, until mixture looks like
   wet sand. Drizzle lemon juice, honey or maple syrup
   and 2 T water over dough.  Mix lightly with a fork
   until dough forms a ball, adding more water if
   necessary. Roll out dough between sheets of waxed
   paper. Sprinkle sesame seeds evenly over bottom of a
   quiche or pie pan, then place dough in pan. (If using
   a pie pan, fold excess dough over to form an edge
   about 2/4 inch thick; try to keep edge even, smooth
   and slightly away from the edge of pan.) Prick sides
   and bottom of crust with a fork. Bake for 20 minutes,
   remove from oven and reduce temperature to 350
   degrees. Filling: Heat 1 teaspoon water or oil in a
   skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute for 3 to
   5 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Add
   broccoli florettes and 1 to 2 tablespoons water, then
   cover. Steam until broccoli is bright green and
   slightly tender but not soft, about 2 minutes. Drain
   vegetables if necessary; place in prebaked pie crust
   and spread evenly over bottom. In a blender or food
   processor, whip tofu, mustard, basil or rosemary,
   nutmeg, salt, pepper and nutritional yeast. Blend 1 to
   2 minutes, until very smooth. Pour tofu mixture over
   vegetables in pie crust. Place red pepper or black
   olives on top if desired. Bake 40 minutes, until
   slightly puffy. Allow to cool 5 to 10 minutes before
   slicing. Serves 6. Variation: substitute 3 cups of any
   vegetable for the broccoli. Try lightly steamed
   asparagus, sauteed mushrooms and leeks, or red pepper
   and zucchini. Veganized version of classic tofu recipe
