IS QUICHE VEGAN?

Quiche is a French tart made of pastry crust and savoury filling. The most popular French quiche is the quiche Lorraine, usually made with eggs, butter, plain flour, and lardons. 

I grew up eating a lot of quiche as a kid. It was just one of the meals my mum would make a lot back in France. She would often make the traditional quiche Lorraine. Naturally, I taught myself how to make a vegan version of a similar quiche to be able to continue enjoying the creaminess and satisfaction of this amazing easy French dish.

If you feel like making some more French recipes, here is what I have for you:

CHICKPEA FLOUR QUICHE FILLING

To make the filling, you will need:

mixing bowl and whisk chickpea flour quiche filling

GLUTEN-FREE CHICKPEA FLOUR QUICHE

I tested for you a gluten-free base option in case you are sensitive or allergic to gluten. To make the gluten-free base, you will just need some chickpea flour and buckwheat flour instead of the plain flour. Scroll down to the full printable recipe for more information.

If you don’t mind gluten, I would recommend you using the base recipe which is made with plain flour. The final result is not that different but you will get a more traditional quiche by using plain flour.

CHICKPEA FLOUR QUICHE WITHOUT CRUST

Another gluten-free option is to make this Chickpea Flour Quiche WITHOUT crust. It is not a common thing to do, but I have tested making no base quiche and I find it convenient when I want to make something really quick.

To make this vegan quiche without crust, simply use slightly more chickpea flour for the filling so the quiche doesn’t fall apart after cooking.

If you can, I recommend making a crust for your quiche. It is worth the 5 extra minutes of prep time.

CAN YOU FREEZE VEGAN QUICHE?

Yes, and I even recommend you to make an extra quiche and freeze it so you have a delicious meal ready for a busy day. 

To freeze leftover quiche, let it cool down completely, place it in an airtight container, and freeze for up to 3 months. You can either microwave, air fry, or cook in the oven for a few minutes to unfreeze it.

To freeze a full quiche, slightly undercook it, let it cool down completely, wrap it in cling film, and freeze for up to 3 months. To unfreeze, cook in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes at 180.C (356.F).

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • To make the quiche gluten-free, you can substitute the plain flour required for the base with a mix of chickpea flour and buckwheat flour.
  • For the stir-fried vegetables, I use two banana shallots (long ones), one red bell pepper, and half an aubergine. You can substitute the banana shallots with any variety of shallots or onions, and substitute the bell pepper and aubergine with either some mushrooms, courgette, or potato.

cooked vegetables for quiche

  • Instead of olive oil, you can use any type of vegetable oil (rapeseed oil, coconut oil…). 
  • You can substitute canned coconut milk with coconut cream. You can also try using soy milk if you have neither of those.
  • Finally, feel free to add vegan cheese on top of the quiche to add extra taste.

I hope you will enjoy this recipe,

    It was delicious although next time I’dd add a little more spices to the filling. I used one small zucchini instead of aubergine and only had 200ml coconut milk, so I added 200ml oat milk. And I baked it for 30 min.
