This easy, healthy vegan tofu frittata recipe was shared with us by my good friend Hannah at Bittersweet Blog. It’s a wonderful brunch dish that’s healthy, plant-based, cheeseless, eggless, gluten-free, and even oil-free. It’s also very quick and easy to make! You probably even have all of the ingredients on hand.
Hannah doesn’t specify firm or extra-firm tofu, but we recommend extra-firm if you want it to set more firmly. However, firm should work for you in a pinch.
Special Diet Notes: Vegan Tofu Frittata
By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, optionally gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, peanut-free, vegan, plant-based, oil-free, sugar-free, and vegetarian.
- 1 (12-ounce) package silken tofu (firm or extra-firm)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce or gluten-free tamari
- 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon spicy mustard
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon dried thyme
- ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1½ cups cooked or thawed frozen spinach or other cooked vegetables
- ½ medium onion
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- Preheat your oven to 400°F and grease an 8-inch cake pan or oven-safe skillet.
- Place the tofu, soy sauce, nutritional yeast, mustard, lemon juice, thyme, and turmeric in your blender or food processor. Puree until very smooth. It should look a bit like frittata mousse.
- In a small skillet over medium-low heat, saute your onions until translucent. Throw in the garlic, and cook for another minute. Remove from the heat, and stir the onion, garlic, and spinach or other vegetables into the tofu mixture.
- Pour the tofu mixture into your prepared pan and even it out.
- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until set. Optionally broil the top for a couple minutes to brown it.
- Let cool for a few minutes before slicing.
My package of silken tofu is only 300 grams. Is that okay for this recipe?
I think the one used here was 12-ounces, 350 grams, so you might need to add a little more. It might be a little strong otherwise.
I used this recipe as a base but swapped leeks and red peppers for the spinach (fried them up with the onions). Really like it with salad. Thank you – my first try with silken tofu and it was a success. ?
Marvelous! Love your swap ideas – thank you for sharing!
