Happy Sunday Friends! I hope you all enjoyed a lovely weekend and are settling into the start of a fresh new week! I have a fun twist on the classic frittata for you tonight. This frittata has so much flavor. It's packed with fresh veggies, plant protein, garlic-shallot aromatics and is 100% egg-free for those of you with dietary restrictions or that enjoy a vegan lifestyle. Regardless your lifestyle eating choices, you will love this dish! You can use any vegetable/herb/spice combinations you like. I love making this on a Sunday evening and cutting into individual portions for a quick lunch or breakfast during the week. It's quick to prepare and perfect alongside a garden salad. You could just as easily cook in a saute pan as a scramble if you need breakfast/dinner on the table a little faster. Another option is using frittata or scramble wrapped in a tortilla as a breakfast burrito. Ideas are endless....use your imagination and and go get cookin! Have a great week all!
