This vegan & glutenfree spinach quiche will have you asking for more! Succulent, creamy and also yet crunchy, you wouldn’t know that neither eggs nor cream were needed to make it.

Vegan Quiche?

A tasty vegan quiche! Is that really possible? Yes it is! Enjoy the magic of chickpea flour, vegetable stock, oat milk, tahini and turmeric to create a magic ‘Vegan Royale’ that will have you begging for more. Freshly cooked spinach and zucchini (courgette), steamed with shallots, garlic and fine spices will do the rest. And to top of it all off: it’s really easy to make! What’s not to like!

Can you make quiche with glutenfree flour?

The question is: can you make a good short-crust pastry with gluten-free flour? The answer is: yes you can! I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Flour. Try and buy a good quality gluten-free flour mix, rather than a single blend, as these work best. Blends made out of rice-, potato- and tapioca usually work well. But feel free to experiment with a gluten-free flour mix that works best for you. I always create the best recipes when I let my gut lead the way and try out new things (and deviate away from strictly following a recipe).

Feeling Vata: This quiche has exactly the right mix of ingredients balancing sensitive Vata types. I myself experience bloating and gas from eating chickpeas, however this has never been the case with chickpea flour or blended chickpeas in dips such as hummus. The finished quiche has nice warm and soft qualities, great for balancing Vata.

Feeling Pitta:  I believe that all leafy greens are good for Pitta, including spinach. However, opinions can deviate. Cooking the spinach breaks down oxalic acid which can be drying and heating to the digestive tract. If you worry about your Pitta you can buy baby leaf spinach which is milder and has less of these properties.

Feeling Kapha:  Starchy flours such as rice and potatoe are usually a bit heavy for Kapha. Luckily the short-crust base of this recipe is really thinly layed out, however mixed in with the olive oil this can be a bit heavy for Kapha types. For a more balanced version simply leave out the crust completly. Make an extra half of the ‘vegan-royale’ and simply fill out the whole quiche-form with vegan royale & the vegetable mix. Leaving out the short crust pastry completly. Voila! A Kapha friendly quiche-dish with hardly any fats.

Zinc – Essential Supplement for Immunity

Discover the superpower of zinc and zinc supplements for enhanced well-being, better immunity, healthier skin & nails, improved hair growth and better moods!

This overlooked essential mineral works tirelessly to shield your body against infections by giving a powerful boost to your immune system, all without breaking the bank. Elevate your wellness-routine with a top-notch zinc supplement, a smart move to equip your body with the immune support it craves, especially in our modern-day stressful and often challenging times. This essential mineral is critical to many bodily processes: From normal cell development to protein synthesis, zinc is the true champion, being a necessary key component in over 300 enzymes. Without it, our immune-system literally can not function: for example, many antibodies to fight viruses and bacteria could simply not be produced in our body without enough zinc. Meaning, we will get ill quicker or take longer to recover from illness.

We get our daily zinc intake usually through food. However high caffeine consumption, stress, and our often unhealthy modern day-diets and lifestyle can lead to a zinc deficiency. Zinc supplements can bridge this gap. Adding a quality zinc supplement to your daily routine is thus a smart way to give your body the immune support it needs and to improve your overall well-being, your mood and your skin.
