This dish is the proper reply to the age-old query: “What can I make for a vegan and gluten-free brunch?” This quiche just isn’t solely vegan and gluten-free, it’s scrumptious – omnivores will adore it, too. And fear not, tofu haters, there’s no soy. It’s all chickpea (garbanzo bean) flour, a really magical ingredient.
I’ve to say, I’ve at all times been a bit skeptical when folks say chickpea flour can mimic eggs. However I believe my quiche is proof constructive. It’s bought simply the best texture, and an eggy style due to black salt. This Indian salt actually does the trick, so it’s price looking for out.
There extra causes to like this factor:
• “Crustless” means it goes collectively very quickly.
• You possibly can range the greens to your liking.
• It’s nice left over and eaten proper out of the fridge.
