Easy Delicious Vegan Frittata

Serves 6

Ingredients:

Cream mixture:

250g soft silken tofu

200g firm tofu

1/2 a cup plant based milk (I used unsweetened soy milk)

1/4 of a cup nutritional yeast

1tsp turmeric powder

1tsp dried oregano

1tsp bbq seasoning

1tsp veggie stock powder

1tbsp mustard

1tsp corn flour

Veggie mixture:

3 potatoes, peeled and diced

1 cup frozen peas

1tsp veggie stock powder

1 white onion, peeled and finely chopped

1/2 a leek, finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 cup cherry tomatoes, finely chopped

1/4 of a green bell pepper, finely chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

Fresh lemon to serve

🌼 Preheat the oven at 200C.

🌼 Lightly grease and line a 20cm springform cake tin.

🌼 Place all the cream mixture ingredients into a high speed blender or a food processor and blend until very creamy. Set aside.

🌼 Place the diced potatoes, the frozen peas and the stock powder in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

🌼 Meanwhile, in a frying pan, add a quarter of a cup of water and simmer the onion and leek over low heat for 5 minutes. Add the garlic, the cherry tomatoes and the pepper. Season to taste. Simmer for another 5 minutes. Place the veggie mixture in a sieve to drain any liquid and set aside.

🌼 Drain the potatoes and peas. Using the same frying pan from the veggies, sauté the potatoes in a few sprays of olive oil (or a little water), on high heat, until they begin to brown.

🌼 In a large bowl, mix the potatoes and peas, the veggies and the tofu cream mixture until everything is evenly combined. Pour the mixture into your prepared tin and level the top. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. Once ready, allow to cool for a while before turning onto a plate. Serve with a simple salad and if you like, a squeeze of fresh lemon.

Enjoy!
