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.

I cooked these on Gas Mark 8 for 22 minutes and I did not open the oven. They were delicious. I made them as per the recipe, but next time I will add green steam vegetables to the mix.

Just wanted to mention: Nutritional Yeast is the same as \'Savoury Yeast\'. It tastes completely different to Brewer\'s Yeast & Torula Yeast. I have a brand by MariGold, called Engevita Savoury Yeast Flakes (vegan). It\'s made in London. I\'m in Australia. You can often find Savoury Yeast flakes in shops that supply bulk Health Food supplies. Hope that\'s helpful to those finding it hard to source :)

This recipe is more complex then it needs to be
But I don\'t want to comment here. This website sucks, way too much "filler" and ads
I will say this though. 350F is enough. 500F is overkill, and likely unhealthy.

Give us your simplified version...I\'m assuming you\'ve tried the recipe & it was well cooked at 350F without the oven door being left open, etc?

I\'d like to try this but I\'m not sure how many grams (or ml) the cups relate to. Can anyone advise?
thank you.

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.

How many equal one serving? One?

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!
