Ingredients

Quiche Crust

  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 6 tbsp water
  • cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil melted, divided
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Quiche FIlling

  • cup chickpea flour
  • 2 cups plant-based milk of choice
  • 6 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • tsp garlic powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¾ tsp black pepper

Instructions

Make the crust

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F and grease pie dish with 1 tbsp of coconut oil (can sub with other oil of choice).

  2. Start by making the crust. Mix together that ground flax seeds and water, and let sit for about 5 minutes to form a gel.

  3. Add all remaining crust ingredients and mix until well combined and one large ball of dough starts to form.

  4. Lay out one piece of parchment paper on a flat surface. Place ball of dough on top of the parchment paper, then lay another piece of parchment paper on top. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough until it's the size of your pie dish.

  5. Remove top layer of parchment paper. Flip pie dish upside down, and place on top of your rolled out dough. Then, flip the pie dish with the dough on top. Remove the layer of parchment paper (See 'How To' section).

  6. Gently pat the dough into place in the pie dish. Use a fork to poke holes into the bottom of the dough.

  7. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to set.

  8. Bake crust for 16-18 minutes, until slightly golden brown, depending on your oven.

Make the filling

  1. Meanwhile, sauté vegetables for 4-5 minutes until cooked through. Whisk together all Chickpea Batter ingredients, then add the sautéed vegetables, reserving some for the top.

  2. Remove crust from oven, then pour in the chickpea batter and add the vegetables you've reserved for the top.

  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the chickpea batter has completely set and crust is golden brown. Serve and enjoy!
