Vegan Veggie Quiche

When I was a child, one of my favourite meals that my mom cooked for me was the very famous “Quiche Lorraine”.
The usual french classic includes lots of dairy and animal products, which of course I do not use in my recipes anymore.

So I tried to recreate different kinds of vegan Quiche recipes and one of them is this “Vegan Veggie Quiche”. Chickpea flour gives it the egg like consistency whilst the juicy cherry tomatoes make it very flavourful. The broccoli gives it its perfect crunch.
As I’m also trying to avoid eating too much gluten, I created a glutenfree base for this recipe as well. A mixture of oats and ground almons makes its taste very nutty and really delicious.
All in all this is a favourite in our household and we love to eat this Quiche at least twice a month.

I hope you enjoy recreating this recipe.

Love et bon appétit, Lisa

Ingredients

For the crust:
– 120g rolled oats
– 80 g ground almonds
– 4 tbsp tapioca starch (or any other starch, that’s up to you)
– 6 tbsp coconut oil or margarine if you prefer that flavour
– 6 tbsp cold water
– some himalayan sea-salt

For the filling:
– 150g chickpea flour
– 350ml of water
– 2 cloves of garlic minced
– some himalayan sea salt
– some pepper
– a few cherry tomatoes
– a few broccoli florets

1 First you preheat your oven to 190°C and either grease your quiche tin with coconut oil or use normal baking paper.

2 Then you start by making the crust. In a mixing bowl combine all of the ingredients mentioned above and kneed it into a dough ball. Put it on a small plate and keep it in the fridge to firm up a little until you’re done with the filling.

3 In another bowl you whisk the chickpea flour, water, minced garlic, sea salt and pepper into a very smooth mixture.

4 Now you can take the dough out of the fridge and “press” it into the quiche tin with your hands. Once you’ve distributed it equally, you take a fork and prick the dough base slightly with it.

5 Afterwards you pour your chickpea mixture onto the dough base and top it with the cherry tomatoes and broccoli florets.

6 Now let it bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Once it’s done, let it cool and enjoy!
