Zucchini & Yam Frittata

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

Step-by-Step

  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.
  5. 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.
  7. Put the tomato sauce over the frittatas.
