vegan, serves 2-3


  • To Blend-
  • 12 ounces silken tofu
  • 1 tbsp soy creamer
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp tamari
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • a few dashes turmeric

  • 1/4 cup fresh kale leaves
  • 1/4 tsp truffle oil

  • extra whole herbs and kale
    2-3 tsp vegan butter for saute pan

Garnish- NOTE: Don’t worry if you don’t have these ingredients, it’s still delish without garnish!

Harissa paste
More fresh herbs
Extra virgin olive oil
Vegan Parmesan (optional)


  1. Add tofu and all other “blend” ingredients to blender – Blend on medium until smooth.
  2. Heat 2-3 tsp vegan butter in a small saute pan. Wait until it starts to sizzle and get hot.
  3. Pour tofu mixture over top vegan butter – slowly. It should sizzle a bit. Pour until the mixture covers the pan and is about 1/2 inch deep. Top poured mixture with the topping ingredients (a few more pinches fresh herbs, kale, and chia seeds)
  4. Cook on med-high heat for about 3 minutes. Then cover pan with lid and reduce heat to medium. Allow to cook covered for about 7 minutes.
  5. Remove lid and cook for one more minute just to dry out a bit – release moisture. Turn off heat and let frittata stand for five minutes in pan.
  6. Even after letting the frittata settle it will be very delicate. You will need to slice with much delicacy and use a wide spatula to transfer to cool plate. As the frittata cools it will bind up significantly. So you do have to option of serving the frittata chilled if you want a firmed up texture.
  7. Sprinkle garnish over top and a swirl of harissa paste for the perfect spicy touch!
