Crustless Mushroom & Spinach Quiche

Updated: May 13, 2018

Savoury breakfast lovers, rejoice! This vegan crustless mushroom and spinach quiche is good-for-you, high in protein, and taste absolutely delicious. To be honest, I ate this for both lunch and dinner…because they are so dang good! I’m a big fan of savoury breakfasts and this quiche might be my new favourite. It has endless possibilities and is a cinch to make. … plus, it reheats well in the microwave for a quick dinner.

I made this vegan crustless quiche last weekend and I loved it! I decided this vegetable quiche recipe must be shared with you all because it’s not only extremely easy to make but also delicious! Also, I would like to note that yes, I know these are not “technically” quiches, because they don’t have a crust! However, we bake them in the oven, so they aren’t quite a vegan frittata either. Therefore, I’ve just decided to go with “Crustless Quiche” — if that nomenclature offends you, feel free to call these whatever the heck you want. You should still make them though, because they are super duper delicious.

Traditionally, a quiche is an open, pastry flan dish, made with eggs, milk, a wheat-based crust and filled with whatever is in season. Of course, here at fruityemz's Kitchen, I don’t do anything ‘traditionally’. I must admit, ‘back in the day’, I used to love regular quiche, with particularly fond memories of that incredible aroma from the bakery near my home before dinner. Damn, they make the best ever quiches!

Vegan cooking is all about flavouring and using the right herbs and spices. This easy and healthy veggie quiche is flavourful and filling, the perfect brunch food. Filled with herbs & spices, mushrooms and spinach this crustless quiche is satisfying and guiltless! It also firms up enough that you can cut actual slices so no crust is necessary. Did I mention its low in calories and practically fat-free, too? Yep, this quiche is awesome!

Now I know what you are thinking – how on earth can you make a vegan quiche? I didn’t want to use any expensive or finicky vegan egg replacer, but I still wanted these quiches to, well, look and taste like quiches. Thats where chickpea flour comes in! It’s high in protein, the perfect balance of light and dense, and is pretty inexpensive too. See that? Looks pretty darn eggy to me.

Skipping the crust gives you more yummy goodness you can enjoy without the extra calories and carbs. Of course, you could make a vegan quiche crust for this recipe. However, if you’re looking for a quick and easy quiche recipe, this dish is perfect for you! It smelled so good when I took it out of the oven, that I didn’t even want to waste any more time photographing it. I just wanted to dig in and enjoy it! If you look closely at the photos you’ll see the steam still coming out of it! 🙂 I’m glad I took time for the photos, though, it was worth it! This is a recipe I’ll want to make again soon and maybe you’ll give it a try too! You can serve this crustless quiche recipe at the dinner. It’s delicious!
