We have to create miracles. A miracle is simply something that is impossible from an old story but possible from within a new one. It is an expansion of what is possible. ~Charles Eisenstein
Abundant with veggies and herbs this Vegan Frittata tastes like Springtime! Loaded up with asparagus, leeks, spinach and tender herbs, along with chickpea flour and psyllium to bind it together, creating a perfect texture that is succulent and light. Honestly, I was surprised at how delicious and satisfying this frittata is! A perfect dish for brunch, lunch or a light dinner.
How to Make Vegan Frittata:
- Prep the herbs and veggies for the filling
- Saute the veggies
- Blend the batter ingredients
- Combine the batter and veggies and bake!
The fresh herbs create a beautiful synergy of flavors. After you chop and mince, start sautéing the leeks and asparagus.
Add in spinach and scallions. Remove from heat. Allow to cool a few minutes and then mix with herbs in a large bowl.
Did you know that raw chickpea flour is full of amazing nutrients? It is rich in folate, iron, and magnesium, just to name a few. Also high in protein and low in calories. It is pretty easy to find it these days, an incredibly versatile pantry ingredient. It doesn’t taste so great raw but cooks up beautifully adding a mild rich flavor.
The vegan frittata filling is easy to make! Just blend until smooth. Make sure to add the water to the blender first, layering other ingredients over top.
Pour the blended filling into the greens, mix thoroughly and spread into an oiled 10-inch cast-iron skillet (or baking pan).
Bake the frittata in the oven at 350 F degrees covered with foil for 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake 15-20 minutes more or until puffed up in the center.
