Vegan Frittata

Vegan frittata - a great substitute for omelette.

I make this vegan fritatta for breakfast, or cut into slices when cold, to take on picnics and hiking adventures. It’s very simple and high in protein from the chick pea flour. I use Kala namak (you will see me grind it in the pestle and mortar in the video) which is a kiln-fired rock salt used in South Asia with a sulphurous, pungent smell. It is also known as “Himalayan black salt“. It gives the fritatta an eggy taste, but use sparingly as its very eggy indeed!

Make smaller fritattas to flip easier.

I’m asked daily how to go vegan overnight, it takes time and some planning. You will need a good supply of herbs and spices to jazz up your veggies. More recipes coming soon. This one is simple and one of my faves for breakfast, instead of an omlette.

Now….cook off!
