Gluten-Free Quiche

One of the references that came up following the publication of the blog is recipes for various allergens. Recipes such as gluten-free, and other types, and that there are not enough recipe resources for those allergens. I don’t really know much about allergens. However, it was a coincidence that I was already in the final stages of baking this Vegan Cashew Cheese Spinach Quiche with gluten-free pie crust as I was getting that comment.

At first, I was a bit worried because I wasn’t a big fan of chickpea flour. But I was pleasantly surprised.  This gluten-free savory pie crust is made from cornmeal and chickpea flour and it came out just surprisingly well.

As it came out of the oven, the crispy dough was dry and crumbly, and at the same time a very stable crust. it was delicious. The next day, it was a bomb!  This is because the crust had absorbed the flavors and moist of the vegan cashew cream and spinach filling. And most of all, it is filling very quickly since it is rich in protein because of the chickpea flour. Combine this vegan quiche with a fresh salad or hot soup and you have a perfect and complete wholesome meal.

It’s very easy to make. Our gluten-free dough mixture is easy to shape inside the pie mold. Immediately after we mixed the ingredients and got a soft dough, we can shape the crust with our hands like a jigsaw puzzle. piece by piece. No need for a rolling pin and no putting between 2 baking sheets. It’s a slightly different dough. Like shaping structure in a sandbox for kids. Finally, we level the base with a glass with a flat bottom so that we get an even thickness. Once we have arranged and shaped the base of the quiche inside the pie pan, put it in the refrigerator to cool and move on to the filling.

Spinach and Cashew Cheese filling

The filling has 3 steps that are listed in the recipe and it is important to do them separately before assembling everything.

step 1

Sautee spinach. and it takes exactly 2 minutes. Into the pan with a little hot olive oil. stirring consistently until the volume reduces.

step 2

Blend the cashews that were soaked in water, without the soaking water. Add vegan cream and spices, ¾ cup water, and blend to a smooth creamy texture.

step 3

In the last step, we’ll make an aromatic white wine concentrate, to which we will add the cashew cream and spinach for another short 2-minute cooking. And that’s it.  All that is left is to pour this delicious filling into the cooled crust waiting for us in the fridge.

To sum this experience up it is very easy to make and bake. unlike the traditional quiche, which will appear here shortly. Do not worry. It tasted very good and creamy, and it’s nice to occasionally leave out gluten. If there are any questions or if you have any problems feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help.  Enjoy!
