Holy trinity frittata, Batman!
Holy Trinity Frittata
1 TBS olive oil
2 TBS each diced shallot, carrot, celery, leeks,
1/4 cup diced shitake mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped kale
1/4 cup vegetable broth
1/4 cup chopped seitan
2 pieces crumbled tempeh bacon
1/4 cup firm tofu
2 TBS nutritional yeast
2 TBS chickpea flour
1 tsp soy sauce
Pinch turmeric (for eggy color)
1/4-1/3 cup vegetable broth
Preheat oven to 400.
In a cast iron skillet saute the shallot, carrot, celery and leeks in olive oil until softened. Add mushrooms, kale, and vegetable broth and steam a few minutes until kale is cooked. Add seitan and tempeh and heat through until broth has cooked off.
Blend together tofu, nootch, chickpea flour, soy sauce, turmeric, and broth until smooth. The mixture should be the consistency of a thin hummus.
Pour the tofu mixture over the cooked veggies and spread around so it covers the pan.
Bake in oven for about 20 minutes until set. You can smell it when it's starting to brown.
I tried to flip it out of the pan, but it stuck a bit and ended up looking like plain old tofu scramble anyway. Holy yum. This is one of the best experiments I've made in awhile. The consistency is kind of like quiche, so I imagine you could do this in a pie plate for the same effect. I'll be making this again.
