Vegetable Quiche with Chickpea Flour Crust (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegetarian)

October 15, 2015

Real Men eat quiche.  And women. And children.  And they most definitely will eat it when it is this good.  I mean crustless quiches are great and everything but where is the creativity and the fun?  A quiche without crust is like peanut butter without the jelly, cookies without milk…you get the point.  So I set out to create a quiche with a healthier crust.  Enter the magical chickpea flour (or garbanzo bean flour)!  There isn’t any additional prep work for the crust either.  You simply add the chickpea flour to the egg and veggies and let it bake away until it magically forms an amazing crust on the edges, while leaving the inside fluffy.  Don’t ask me how this works.  I’m no scientist!  But it does.  Just trust me.  And then bask in all your healthy quiche glory!  Also, feel free to customize the flavors as you like.  Add a spicy chicken sausage, whatever veggie combos you like, make it Italian, Mexican, Greek, etc.  Get creative!
