A Happy Quiche

Ever since we tried out the green pea flour, we have been incorporating it in almost all our recipes! Green pea flour is a gluten free flour that is high in protein. Whether we use 1tbsp or 1/2 cup of green pea flour, we have not been disappointed with the outcome of flavor. Today we decided to make a green pea crust for our mini quiches. The results were yummy as usual! (see recipe below)


15 minutes later:

  1. could you use one 9-inch tart pan for this recipe instead of making individual ones?

    1. Not sure. You may want to consider doubling the recipe. I found an image online that shows 4 of our mini pans within a 9 inch tart pan - take a look:
