I got the original recipe from my Tofu Cookery cookbook, but didn't want to use as much tofu as they called for so I substituted some of it with a yam. It worked out perfectly and the Frittatas were a nice golden colour on the outside.

How To Make zucchini & yam frittata

  • 1
    FOR THE VEGGIES: Set oven at 360'F In a large saute pan cook the veggies lightly until tender crisp. Then remove from the heat. Set aside to cool.
  • 2
    FOR THE BINDING: In a separate bowl mix all the ingredients in a food processor except for 1/2 of the brick of tofu, mash that in a bowl then add the processed tofu, yam, salt, flour, baking powder and tamari to it. Give it a good mix. It should be smooth with a few lumps of tofu here and there. Stir in the sauteed vegetables.
  • 3
    Oil a large cookie sheet or use a Silpat sheet, which ever you want. These will stick.
  • 4
    Scoop 1/2 cup of the mixture on to the cookie sheet and flatten it down like a pancake. Bake for 15 minutes then flip and bake for another 15 minutes. When done cool on the cookie sheet. They will firm up a bit more once cooler.

    While the Frittatas are baking make your sauce.
  • 6
    FOR THE TOMATO SAUCE TOPPING: In the pan you cooked your veggies, add the tomatoes, water, olive oil, wine vinegar, garlic powder, salt and chopped parsley. Simmer for 20 minutes to reduce.
