Stephanie Dryer is the brain behind this delicious recipe:
I love, love, love brunch! As a mom of three, it’s not something I get to indulge in often, as Saturday and Sunday mornings are busy with the kids’ activities, friend birthday parties, and family outings. But, oh how I savor a great frittata. It’s the quintessential item on my brunch menu, and I have even been known to serve them for dinner!
With Spring upon us, it’s the perfect opportunity to chop up some of my favorite veggies of the season and bake them in a frittata. This particular recipe has artichoke hearts, asparagus, and sun-dried tomatoes. It sings Spring to me and tastes like it too!
What Makes a Frittata?
A frittata (usually made with eggs) is a like a quiche without the crust. Or a tofu scramble without the scramble. Or an omelet without the folding. Ok, it’s not as mysterious as it sounds though. It’s basically a base of tofu (in this case) with veggies and seasonings which is baked in a skillet or pan. There are other vegan versions of this typical brunch or lunch dish which are made with a base of chickpea flour.
You can include a variety of different veggies in your frittata but in case you need some ideas, consider the following color categories:
- Green – Zucchini, asparagus, green bell pepper, kale, spinach
- Red – Red bell pepper, sun-dried tomatoes
- Brown(ish) – Mushrooms, yellow onions, artichokes
- Purple – Olives, red onions, red cabbage
Below are some steps outlined for you accompanied by some awesome photos!
Cook your veggies in a pan with the broth!
Serve and enjoy!
