Spinach, Broccoli, Kale & Black Rice Egg Free Frittata
I had a heap of veggies left over from my produce bag and figured I’d give an egg-free frittata a go. I love the tufo quiche I make, so figured I’d do something similar. I seen a frittata recently that had wild rice in it and it looked great, so went with adding it in, made it a bit more filling too.
The taste and texture were amazing, my egg eating husband loved it, and had it for dinner 3 nights in a row, which isn’t like him at all. The tofu works so well, the texture is very similar to the real thing.
I used parmesan cheese in mine, but if you want a vegan version, just leave it out and use some nutritional yeast instead to give it that cheesy taste. It’s also a great way to use up veg, you could throw just about anything in, I think I’ll add some thinly sliced potato to mine next time as well
Suitable for: Gluten, egg, nut & sugar free diets, also Vegetarian, and can be adapted for vegan friendly version.
