Easy vegan frittatas are an egg-free delight. Tofu frittatas are better than the “real egg” frittata. Make them bite size, muffin size, or sandwich size, whatever you desire. Whether piping hot, warm, or cold, you’ll enjoy these savory and satisfying healthy treats.
I am a huge tofu fan. It is low in fat, low in calories, and has zero cholesterol. Tofu is flavored by the enhanced zest of the veggies and herbs used in the recipe. Frittatas can be made with your favorite veggies. Try spinach, zucchini, broccoli, kale, or any other veggies. You can’t beat these amazing tasty frittatas.
Easy Vegan frittatas are light, delicious and healthier than the "real egg" version! Tofu is the base of these cholesterol free frittatas and gluten free.
- 1 tablespoon vegan butter

- ¼ teaspoon turmeric
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

- fresh ground pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Drain tofu, wrap in paper towels and press to release some of the liquid.
Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat and sauté sweet onion 3 to 4 minutes until translucent. Add garlic, spinach, and green onions and allow them to cook for an additional 2 minutes until spinach is wilted.
Purée tofu, soy sauce, turmeric, mustard, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper for 2 minutes in a food processor until smooth, it will be thick.
In a large bowl, fold spinach mixture with the puréed tofu.
Coat a 24-cup mini-muffin tin with cooking spray.
Add a heaping tablespoon of mixture to each mini-muffin and cook on middle rack for 35-40 minutes until lightly browned.
Use diced zucchini, super greens, and any of your favorite veggies.
Add 1/2 cup of vegan mozzarella for a cheesy flavor.
If you have a soy allergy:
In place of the tofu, use a 15 oz can of rinsed garbanzo beans + 1/4 cup of dairy free milk and mash with the back of a fork.
