Say it with me…Frittata!

Fun to say, no? Especially of you roll the "r".

Inspired by Urban Vegan, I dusted off the old VwaV and actally tried a new recipe. The frittata, p. 14.

I ended up making a few subs (sweet-hot mustard instead of Dijon, zucchini instead of asparagus, re-hydrated sun-dried tomatoes instead of oil-packed, and frozen basil cubes + dried basil instead of fresh…I think that’s it.)

The verdict: delicious, easy, versatile and filling! This is a good recipe to use up whatever vegetables you might have around waiting to go bad. Reminiscent of tofu scramble, but even easier to make I’d say. Plus, squishing tofu with your fingers is fun. My own omnivore has yet to try it. I thought he might not like the mac n cheez, but he ate it up, so we’ll see.

The frittata looks wonderful, I need to pull out my cookbook. I also need to make that seitan o greatness. I agree about the great looking plate, so seasonally appropriate.
