Easy Veggie Quiche

A juicy, rustic vegetable quiche is simply a wonderful meal. Different vegetable varieties, fresh herbs and nuts make it possible to conjure new, delicious creations from the base recipe. But for a long time, I did not dare to make a vegan as it’s usually based on loads of eggs & cheese..  But there – with the all-rounder chickpeas and an additional spoon of yeast flakes even a vegan Quiche comes together fantastically. The hearty cheese just gives way to nutty pine nuts. A little leek and some smoked vegan meat give the Quiche the finishing touch. Et voilà, a late summer and vegetable dream, is reflected in the crisp pastry. Bon Appétit!

Quiche is one of the things I missed many times – I realised soon there was no need to because even my first try turned out so incredibly delicious – that a few days later I feelt the urge to make it again soon, very soon. It works wonders with silken tofu but also with chickpea flour! I usually have it with a large portion of salad. This is super easy to transport and perfect to bring to a summer picnic 🙂

Ingredients:

For the crust:

  • 150g vegan margarine
  • 1 3/4 cups spelt/ wheat or gluten free flour (-250g)
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 3 tbsp cold water

For the filling:

  • 1.5 cups chickpea flour (you can grind it up yourself in your food processor if you have dried chickpeas)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder or 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 finely chopped shallot
  • 2tbsp oregano/thyme/basil
  • 200ml soja cream
  • 700g veggies of your choice ( I used plum tomatoes, peppers, leek, broccoli, carrots, peas, more chickpeas)
  • Optional: smoked vegan ham or cubes of smoked tofu

Instructions:

How to make the crust:

  • Pout all of the ingredients for the crust in a big bowl
  • Use your hands to mix to mix everything together and knead until you have a smooth batter
  • Grease a cake/ quiche tin and sieve a teaspoon of flour in it to prevent the dough from sticking
  • Use a rolling pin or an oil bottle to roll the dough until the diameter is a bigger than the tin and place in the tin
  • Press the ends of the dough to form an even trim and place in the fridge for 30 mins.

How to make the filling:

  • Preheat the oven to 200C
  • Clean and then cut the veggies in small chunks/ stripes
  • Mix chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, water, muscat, salt, pepper and herbes and whisk together for 2 mins
  • Pour half of the filling into the tin and then sprinkle the veggies, minced onion & garlic over it and pour the other half on top
  • Bake for 30-45mins until golden brown.
