  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Wash the grains of rice in a sieve. Heat the water in a large saucepan until boiling. Add the washed rice and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook rice for 20 minutes until tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Turn off the heat, place a lid on the pot and allow to steam for 10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before adding the Marmite™, fresh herbs, eggs and cornflour. Mix well.
  3. Grease a 23cm spring form tin with spray oil. Press rice mixture into tin, covering both the base and sides. Push a piece of tin foil into the crust and bake blind in the oven for 10 minutes. Rest for 20 minutes and prepare filling.
  4. Blanch spinach in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain well and squeeze out extra water. Roughly chop. Mix with spring onions, tofu, herbs and slices of red capsicum in a bowl. Season to taste before spooning mixture into the pre-prepared crust.
  5. Whisk together eggs and soy milk before pouring evenly over the tofu and vegetables.
  6. Place the baking tin on a baking tray in the middle of the oven. Bake for 45 minutes until egg is set. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
