slices of tofu frittata...
Shaheen asked how to make tofu frittata. here ya go Shaheen!
sometimes I make it in a tray, and sometimes I make little muffin sized portions, which are pretty cute for lunch boxes.
(the photos in this post are a little grim... I need a camera... rather than just taking them on my phone. Anyways, on with the show)
The recipe is from Nonna's Italian kitchen by Bryanna Clark Grogan. It's a vegan italian cookbook which I bought sometime early on in my relationship with bert in an attempt to make him the kind of food his mama used to make....
The ingredients for the frittata are as follows:
1 pound medium firm tofu
6 tablespoons flour
quarter cup nutritional yeast flakes
1 tablespoon water or dry white wine
1 teaspoon baking powder
half a teaspoon of salt
half a teaspoon of turmeric
quarter teaspoon pepper
you then need to just mix it all up in a blender and then you can add anything you fancy - potatoes, sweet potatoes, roasted veg, spinach, onions, garlic and so on and so on.
I just use the recipe as a guide and often find that the batter is a little dry so add olive oil or more water..
once it's all mixed together, pop it in an oven proof dish and cook it for about 20-30 minutes.
You can eat it hot but it's pretty squishy and I prefer it cold when it's firm. It's great for breakfast and lunch boxes.
As for the rest of my vegbox... (for part one see here) this is what went down:
although a couple of you lovelies recommended that I make braised lettuce and peas, I ignored you and went with lettuce and pea soup.
It was pretty good. Bert refused to try it.
Beans! I blanched them and then cooked them with garlic and chili. We had them with potatoes (from the veg box) and veggieburgers. They were yum!
once all those greens were sorted out I could relax a little...
and make soup. It was carrots, potatoes and red lentils. I also added some dumplings, because who can resist a dumpling? no one, that's who.
so, after all that I was just left with a red pepper and two courgettes, so I roasted them right up and popped them on a homemade pizza.
