Vegan Spring Frittata

 
This "vegan frittata" is a take-off on the Persian egg dish often called "koko sabzi" and
baked up for the New Year (March 20th or thereabouts).  The lovely green fresh herbs really celebrate Spring!  I have used some traditional ingredients (the herbs) and some non-traditional ingredients (umeboshi plum vinegar, almond milk, nutritional yeast, and of course, the tofu.)  I think of this as a World Recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 2 C. Organic Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 C. Organic Fresh Chives, finely chopped
  • 2 C. Organic Fresh Dill, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. Tamari
  • 1/4 C. Plum Vinegar
  • 2 pkgs. Extra Firm Organic Tofu
  • 1/2 C. Almond Milk
  • 1/2 C. Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 tsp. mixed Kosher Salt and Black Pepper 
  • 1 T. Garlic Powder or 1 Clove Garlic, finely chopped

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 350F/177C   - Cover the bottom of a casserole pan with parchment paper
  • Saute the Herbs in a small amount of filtered water until limp in a large pan
  • Add in the Tamari, Salt and Pepper
  • Blend together in a Food Processor (or use a potato masher by hand): Tofu, Plum Vinegar, Almond Milk, Nutritional Yeast, and Garlic.
  • Pour the Tofu Mixture into the large pan with the Herbs and mix well over low heat just until all ingredients are well combined
  • CAREFULLY pour the entire content of the pan into the casserole and Bake at 350 degrees for abut 35-40 minute

Organic Granny's Older Granddaughter Blogs Here....

Today in the Mall a little girl came over to Grandma
when she was going to take a picture of us and
asked if we wanted her Mom to take our picture.
  So cute! L: Grandpa, Alyza (Me)
(Organic) Grandma and Angelika.
Hello my name is Alyza and I am 11 years old. I have a sister named Angelika, two parents, 3 grandparents and we have two cats named Ginger and Aiyansh. Ginger is a short-haired blonde-orange tabby cat and Aiyansh is a short-haired grey tuxedo cat. We got our two kittens about a year ago.

This week has been great-- my grandparents came to visit us on our Spring Break.

Today was fun but a little sad because when we went to the mall to buy me a pair of shoes (white Adidas court shoes with black stripes) we couldn't find a pair in my size, although we looked in about 6 or 7 stores. We also made a trip to a different Mall to get a Roblox gift card for my sister, but they were out of stock for the $10 ones!

For now, I will wrap it up.








Happy Puppy Day!
