Summer’s End Vegan Frittata


It’s hard to believe that summer is quickly coming to a close. However, this Summer’s End Vegan Frittata will help to make that transition a little bit easier and it definitely makes use of ALL of the incredible vegetables that are available right now.


Brunch Time!

Brunch is probably the meal we enjoy more than anything else.  I mean what’s better than sleeping in late and maybe even having a cocktail alongside delicious food?!

This vegan frittata is the ultimate brunch meal. It’s packed with nutritious veggies and has oodles of protein thanks to the tofu and chickpea flour batter.  You will surely be FULL after this delightful meal!


Vegetable Bounty

Vegetables are abundant this time of year.  There really is no shortage of combinations that would be incredible in this easy egg free frittata, so feel free to go wild!  But here is one combo that we have found to be truly delicious…

  • Tomato
  • Yellow Squash
  • Eggplant
  • Swiss Chard

Additionally, we also added lots of fresh herbs, as well as onion and garlic. This is one flavorful plant-based meal!


Summer’s End Vegan Frittata Steps:

One way to bring out all of the savory vegetable flavors is roasting them first.  Plus, it doesn’t get any easier that simply chopping and throwing everything together on one sheet pan! Just be sure to cut the eggplant and yellow squash small enough so they cook as quickly as the cherry tomatoes do, about a quarter inch thick.

  • While the vegetables are roasting, the vegan batter can be made in a high speed blender as well as the quick sauté of the swiss chard, onions, and garlic. We opted to use spring onions but any onion will do.
  • Finally, the last step is to simply combine everything in an oven-safe skillet and cook until the frittata has a nice golden brown color on top.   Additionally, we choose to reserve some of the roasted tomatoes and a little of the swiss chard sauté to garnish on top.  It just seems to make this Summer’s End Vegan Frittata even more special and perfect for serving for brunch or for any other meal.


A Delicious Vegetable Frittata

Go ahead, make use of ALL the veggies this time of year has to offer! This Summer’s End Vegan Frittata lets the vegetables do the talking and they deserve it.  Hope you are relishing the last of the summer too. Happy cooking!
