Power Hungry Chickpea Flour Mini Quiches

OMG. You guys. These quiches kind of blew my mind. I’ve always thought that there was no way to make a truly “eggy” vegan quiche, but this recipe from Power Hungry has done it!!

I had never even heard of Power Hungry before finding this recipe on Pinterest (I feel like there is a theme happening here…), but I have to say that I am so impressed by this recipe! Here’s what you need to know about these amazing vegan quiches:

  • The base is made with lots of chickpea flour. However, they do not taste at all like chickpeas.
  • You can use any vegetable add-ins you want! I chose to use 1 cup of steamed cauliflower florets and 3/4 cup of steamed spinach, which was slightly more than the recommended amount of 1 & 1/2 cups of (lightly-cooked) vegetables.
  • In the original recipe, there are no specific spices recommended, though they are suggested. I used the optional clove of garlic, 1/2 tsp dried thyme, and 1/2 tsp dried rosemary. I am very pleased with how those spices worked out and would definitely recommend those amounts!
  • For real though; these quiches taste nearly identical to the non-vegan quiches I remember having a few years ago. The texture and taste are spot-on. This is a dish to serve to skeptics of vegan food!
  • The recipe makes twelve nearly-overflowing mini quiches, made in a traditional muffin tin.
  • When you mix up the ingredients, the batter is very thin. In fact, I almost thought that I made a mistake because I didn’t believe it could be so thin and still bake up well! However, the finished mini quiches set up very well to be firm, sturdy, and tender.
  • For an added touch, I think that Minimalist Baker’s Vegan Parmesan Cheese would be amazing sprinkled on top of the quiches before baking. I used plain old nutritional yeast to sprinkle on top, which was very nice, but I think the vegan parmesan would be even better!
  • There are full nutrition stats posted on the recipe’s page ❤

can you believe that texture??

Overall, I am so pleased with this recipe. 5/5 stars, for sure! ❤

Question of the Day:

Do you prefer sweet or savory breakfast foods? I always eat sweet breakfasts because I have some favorites that I know I like. If you have any favorite savory breakfast foods, though, please let me know… I’m open to ideas!
