Vegan mushroom, broccoli and spinach quiche

IMG_2787I have been back in the kitchen again working on a new recipe and after getting approval from my non vegan family members I’m happy to share my Vegan quiche recipe. This one does require a bit more time than my usual recipes, although it is totally worth every minute!

I have kept the recipe quite simple and it doesn’t require many ingredients that you wouldn’t  find in your cupboard already (hopefully). There are certain foods essential for the vegan diet and if you don’t have these in then you need to consider them for future shopping trips.

Gram flour (chickpea flour) is an absolute blessing for Vegan cooking. It is a great egg replacer and I use it frequently to make things such as pancakes, onion bhaji’s and omelettes.
Not only is gram flour a great source of protein for Vegans providing 22g per 100g! This versatile flour also has many nutritional benefits. It is rich in fiber, iron, potassium, manganese, copper, zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, folate, vitamin b-6.

This is a hearty, fulfilling meal that is great for anytime of the day and for any occasion, not to mention it is absolutely Delicious! Enjoy!

  1. Hello, Jenny
    I am looking forward to trying this recipe. I was wondering if it’d make much difference if I substituted plain flour for whole wheat flour. Do you think it would still work?
    Thanks for sharing your recipe and also
    for your help
