vegan tofu & vegetable frittata

June 10, 2015 by Angie

I have been on a quest for a new breakfast. I love the blog Fat Free Vegan so I looked there for protein-packed breakfast recipes. I made a slightly altered version of her vegan zucchini frittata Tuesday night. It is potentially too labor- and dishes-intensive to be my every weekday breakfast, but, man oh man, it is phenomenal tasting. I love it so much. The seasoning is just right and the silken tofu, tahini, and soy milk make it deliciously creamy. I ate some of it right out of the oven because I couldn’t help myself!

I warmed some up for breakfast yesterday and today and still have enough to eat tomorrow morning. I could have stretched it to four meals, but I get shaded out by leftovers after the third day.

Breakfast!
Tofu frittata and a soy latte lovingly made by Robbie = perfect breakfast!

The substitutions I made were in the vegetables used. I used three green onions, a medium sized zucchini, a medium sized yellow squash, and a lot of minced garlic. I meant to include fresh spinach but totally forgot 🙁 I couldn’t figure out how to “shred” the squash so I diced them and it worked out just fine.

I followed the blender part as directed except I used a food processor because I only have an immersion blender. I also followed the pan preparation directions by spraying oil then putting a circle of parchment paper on top. I had no issues getting the frittata out of the pan. In fact, it pretty much flew out and then I couldn’t get it back in the pan without injuring it. I don’t mind because it’s just for me, but if I made this for a fancy brunch I would be sad, so beware.
