How to Prepare Healthy & Delicious Egg-Free Frittatas That Would Only Take 30 Minutes Of Your Time

Frittatas are one of the best things about going vegan—they’re light, healthy, and satisfying. And they’re really easy to make!

Buffy made this egg-free frittata recipe because she missed them so much after going full plant-based. She said: “After going fully plant-based, frittatas were one of the things I missed the most, as they are a reliable go-to for any vegetarian browsing the lunch-time café fare.

After many trials, Buffy came up with this version that’s just as delicious and uses tofu, plant milk, chickpea flour, turmeric, and cashew butter. It’s the egg of the future! High in protein and calcium (and heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats), this recipe is sure to become your favorite way to cook your frittatas—or any other meal—in your kitchen!

In a frying pan on medium heat, with a little water or oil, cook the spring onions, corn, broccoli and capsicum for a few minutes until softened. Transfer to a bowl with the herbs.

Blend the eggy mix ingredients in a blender until smooth, then add to the veges and stir until well combined. Spoon into muffin tray and bake for 20 minutes until golden.

Leave for 5–10 minutes before removing, then serve with relish and salad and top with more fresh herbs.
