Root Vegetable Chickpea Flour “Quiche” {Vegan}

This gluten-free and vegan root vegetable chickpea flour quiche recipe was developed exclusively for Nuts.com and our customers by the talented Anya Kassoff and Masha Davydova. This mother-daughter team share their ideas about tasty and nourishing cooking on their website, Golubka Kitchen.

 
Chickpea flour, the protein, fiber and iron-rich flour made of ground garbanzo beans, is the perfect ingredient for making vegan quiche. When mixed with water and oil, it performs somewhat similarly to the egg and cream foundation of traditional quiche, solidifying into a sort of custard when baked at a high temperature. 

 
This quiche comes together quite quickly once you’ve roasted your vegetables, and I’ll even go as far as saying that it’s much easier to prepare than its traditional counterpart.It’s studded with roasted winter roots to embrace the season, and made delicious with invigorating, flavor-building spices like turmeric, smoked paprika and black pepper. And if you, like me, are a lover of socca or farinata (the large chickpea pancake originating from Provence and Liguria), this recipe is for you, as the quiche is reminiscent of a plumper, more substantial version of socca. 

 
This quiche would make for an excellent, nutritious addition to your holiday table or any other meal, served alongside a green salad or soup.

Note: You can use an equivalent amount of just one or two types of root vegetables instead of all three in this recipe.

      Fair point for anyone watching their sodium intake! Please feel free to omit the salt or nutritional yeast in this recipe if you are following a low salt diet. 🙂

      Hi Paul! We wouldn’t recommend making this without some type of oil to moisten and prevent sticking. We used coconut oil as a healthier alternative to butter.
