Ingredients and substitutions

Extra firm tofu works best in this vegan frittata recipe. There’s no need to press the tofu.

Fresh asparagus works well in this dish but you can use any type of vegetables you like. Bell peppers, broccoli, or spinach would be delicious alternatives.

Black salt adds an “eggy” flavor to this dish that makes it taste like the real deal. You can omit the black salt if necessary and it will still be delicious.

Nutritional yeast adds a “cheesy” flavor to this dish. It really does add a big flavor boost so I don’t recommend omitting it.

How to make it

Start by adding the chopped asparagus and extra virgin olive oil to a nonstick frying pan set to low-medium heat. Cook for 6-8 minutes or until the asparagus has softened slightly, stirring often.

Next you’ll preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, then transfer the asparagus to a large mixing bowl.

Add the tofu, plant-based milk, nutritional yeast, onion powder, black salt, table salt, and turmeric to a blender or food processor, then blend until smooth. Transfer the blended tofu mixture to the mixing bowl with the asparagus. Add the spelt flour to the mixing bowl, then stir to combine.
