Let's make the batter

  • In a large bowl add chickpea flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, black pepper, turmeric powder, cayenne pepper.
  • Prepare the stock with 1 cups water adding lemon juice too and the cream / silken tofu / milk
  • Add the liquid over the dry ingredients and mix well using a whisk or a blender.
  • Add dill/ cilantro/ parsley and spinach and mix well.Let is sit.

Let's prepare the veggies

  • Cut asparagus, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and red pepper.
  • Add them on a baking tray and sprinkle olive oil over.
  • Bake them at 180°C (350°F) for 15 - 20 min depending on the oven.
  • Remove veggies from oven .
  • Let them cool a bit and then add over the batter.Mix gently.
  • Pour the batter in a quiche tray.I used a muffin tray ,too.
  • Grease the baking tray (quiche tray or muffin tray ).
  • Bake at 200°C (400°F) for about 20 minutes.
  • Keep an eye on the oven, the muffins are going to need less time in the oven than the quiche.
  • Remove from oven.Serve warm or cold!


  • I used both a quiche tray and a muffin tray because both of them were small.
  • You may consider using a tray of your choice.
  • If baking in a muffin tray, please consider the fact that they may be ready in less than 20 minutes. 
  • I first tried this recipe without using any plant based cream / milk / silken tofu.It turned out a little bit too dry so I figured I should use something to soften it, to make a bit more moist.You can make it using just the stock and the chickpea flour to make the batter, it works out pretty well, too.
  • Any veggies combination can be used, feel free to play around.
