Vegan Tofu Frittata

Updated: Aug 5, 2018



I love frittata but since I'm conscious of my egg consumption, i enjoy making healthy alternatives when I can. I've seen many vegan alternatives that use gluten-free flours or large amounts of legumes. I love this recipe because its FULL of flavour and super high in protein. Serve it your favourite way or store the frittata in the fridge for a week to add to your meal prep. I love to serve mine with a fresh crunchy salad, unsweetened coconut yogurt and a squeeze of fresh lemon.


Serves: 6
