Yeah I don't think I'll get the ninja to eat this, but after my earlier frittata success, I just had to see if this would come out.

This time the scramble part had onion, garlic, collard greens, leeks, carrot, celery, and a veggie burger.
The "eggy" part was:

1/3 cup firm tofu
1/3 cup vegetable broth
2 TBS nutritional yeast
2 TBS masa harina
1 tsp lemon juice
A pinch of salt

Blend together

I put the scramble in a small casserole dish then poured on the eggy part. Baked at 400 about a half hour. I think leeks make everything taste good, but this was really nice. I was surprised how quiche like it actually was. Last week I used chickpea flour which made the eggy mix kind of hummus like, so this week I subbed the masa harina from the failed tortilla attempt. The masa harina is fine enough that it's not corn bready, but still firms the whole thing up nicely.

Glad I ate something before heading off to brunch with friends. I did check the menu and I can get a fruit salad and pasta. Next time I'm dragging them out for a vegan brunch.

Happy Easter or Passover or whatever you're celebrating!
