Mixed Veggie Quiche (No Tofu Necessary!) [Vegan]
- 1 cup spelt flour OR your favorite gluten-free flour
- 1/2 cup ground almond meal
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/3 cup lukewarm water
- 1 1/2 cups chickpea flour/gram flour
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional)
- 1/2 zucchini, sliced
- 5 sliced mushrooms
- 1 sliced tomato
- 1/2 sliced red onion
- Preheat the oven to 356°F degrees.
- Add all of the pastry ingredients into a food processor and pulse until it starts to stick together.
- On a floured surface roll out the pastry crust until it's an even 1/4-inch thick.
- Using a quiche pan, line it with the fresh pastry. Mine is never 100 percent even so just do the best you can.
- Prick the pastry with a fork and pop into the oven for 10 minutes.
- While the crust is cooking you can start on the filling. Take a large bowl and add the chickpea flour and water. Whisk together making sure there are no lumps.
- Once you have a smooth consistency add the oil, garlic powder, a pinch of salt and nutritional yeast and stir through.
- When the crust has cooked slightly, take out of the oven and place the sliced veggies evenly inside.
- Pour the chickpea mixture over the veggies and pop back into the oven for a further 30 minutes.
- The quiche is ready when it has a nice golden color on top and is cooked through. You can enjoy it straight out of the oven or cold with a large salad.
