Ok Miss Fancy Pants, whose making quiche for breakfast? Two thumbs back at this girl, that's who! These little gems are like a chickpea flour omelet in a snackable portable form. When I first took these out of the oven I was thinking in my head, “hmmm, yeah I’ll be able to eat about five of these..” Man was I wrong. These are ridiculously filling, yet surprisingly light, and I was pretty content after just one.

Chickpea Flour Quiche [Vegan]



Cook Time



  • 1 1/4 cups chickpea flour
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons fresh herbs
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 diced pepper
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Get that oven cranking to 500°F.
  2. Spray a muffin tin liberally with cooking spray.
  3. In a medium bowl mix the water, chickpea flour, spices, herbs, nutritional yeast, and 1 tablespoon of the oil. Set aside.
  4. In a small sauté pan, add in 1/2 tablespoon olive oil and garlic. Add in diced vegetables and sauté 3-5 minutes.
  5. Add vegetables to flour mixture and using a whisk combine all ingredients together.
  6. Pour batter into muffin tins and place in oven about 12 minutes.
  7. Then open the oven door (this is to allow steam to escape) and bake another 10 minutes with the door open.
  8. Serve.

The batter will look very thin. This is ok as it will thicken up as it bakes.

Do you have to cook these with the door of the oven open? That feels really wrong/inefficient? Is there a way to do it without doing that?

I\'ve been making a
batch once a week for workday breakfast. They keep really well.

I don't have access to nutritional yeast.. can I skip or add any other alternative?

I have the same issue... Did anyone answer you back? Can we use baking soda instead?

Nutritional yeast is like a vegan replacement for parmesan, it tastes vaguely like cheese so if you\'re going to replace it, substitute with a cheese-like substance. So for Joelle\'s comment on baking soda, not at all really.

These were wonderful... nice with some greens and black salt in the filling. I might add some vegan cheese next time!

These were yummy! I used a fresh green pepper from my garden. Herbs from the garden as well: chives, oregano and curly parsley. Nice moist texture, really seemed like quiche. Thanks!

Thank you Jen for your post, it helped me want to try this - I am sure you could add any chopped up veggies you had on hand - I have some recipes on this order that are Sooo good, I think I will give this one a try!

One question, Do you all follow the instructions and leave the oven door open?? I am NOT going to do that as it will ruin my oven panel, at 500 degrees... the author, Christa, seems to not check this post as I see no comments from her.
