Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a quiche pan with margarine.
Combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, dried tarragon and dried basil in a bowl. Add margarine and lightly work the fat and flour together. Add cold water, lightly kneading together into the shape of a ball. Let dough sit for a couple of minutes.
Between two sheets of waxed paper, roll dough into a circle until it's big enough to cover the pan. Trim the edges and pierce some holes in the dough with a fork. Freeze the shell until hard. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
In a food processor combine tofu, 3 tablespoons olive oil, vinegar, miso, garlic and 1 teaspoon salt; process until creamy.
Sauté mushrooms in remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Add Marsala wine and black pepper and sauté for another 5 minutes. Sauté shallots over medium heat until translucent.
Combine egg mixture, mushrooms, shallots and herbs; transfer the filling into the cold shell. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes.
