Eggplant quiche, chickpeas and cumin (vegan, gluten-free)

Hello !! I can not count the number of times I have prepared this eggplant, chickpea and cumin quiche since the beginning of the month. I’ve done a lot of trying to come up with the recipe that I find ideal, and I’m really happy to share it with you today. The eggplant/chickpea/ cumin trio dumps. And as a quiche, with a gluten-free dough with a touch of coconut flour, but also a light cream with sesame puree, it’s just perfect in my opinion.

Summer is now here and the first holidaymakers are taking the road to the long-awaited annual farniente. I will take advantage of these weeks to come to relax and rest, as much as possible with a small whirlpool at home. Several recipes are waiting to be written in my drafts, and I will make sure to finish their layout so that they are ready for the new school year. On the program in September: a vegetarian and gluten-free brownie with no added sugar or fat, a delicious thick salad dressing, a light broken dough, and sweet apricot. I wish you a beautiful summer. We find ourselves very quickly in the kitchen!
