Meatless Monday: Sweet Corn Quiche in Teff Crust

This simple, yet delicious recipe has been in the Bob’s Red Mill family for years. We’ve recently revisited it and revised it a little to make it easier and more delicious. Teff flour might be hard to come by near you, but you can snag a bag online on our website or Amazon. If you can’t access it, try replacing it with oat flour, brown rice flour or even whole wheat flour for a similar taste and texture. We love the creamy texture of this quiche paired with the nutty flavor of this teff crust. Pair this with a light green salad for a lovely brunch option and add a cup of soup to the mix to make it a full-fledged dinner.

how is this meatless???

There is no meat in this recipe. Eggs are not typically included as meat. If you are vegan, this recipe would not be a good fit for you.
