My Dinner Frittata.

Normally I would make something like this for breakfast to go alongside pancakes oozing with margarine and maple syrup and some smoky tempeh bacon. But when dinner came around I had no idea what to do and wanted something light and easy so I decided to make this. A frittata is kind of a cross between an omelette and a quiche. I don't miss eggs at all but if I wanted something egg-like, I can always make it with tofu. This is one of those recipes that works. The recipe is from The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook. I like to play around with the filling. Tonight's frittata has onions, garlic, scallions, potatoes, spinach and white squash. I added sliced tomatoes on top for prettiness. Mmmm, mmm, mmm. I served it with a dollop of mock hollandaise which is pretty much a sauce made with vegan mayo, dijon mustard, lemon juice and salt and pepper mixed together. I like to squirt some ketchup in it too to give it a little sweetness as well as color.

So I really don't want to bother you and I am so sure you have been asked this question a million times and are exhausted from answering it but if on the off chance you have done a post on when and why you became a vegan and the benefits you have seen personally, I would be so interested to read it.

No worries if you don't have time to answer this!

Will you please tell me how many pretzels you add to the peanut butter mousse pie and how to make the chocolate sauce.

Fun to say and fun to make, a frittata is an Italian style omelette that you can serve to a crowd. Best of all you don't have to flip or fuss with frittata, it starts cooking stove top and then simply finishes cooking in the oven until set.
Quick and easy to make, frittatas are perfect for brunch, lunch and dinner. Add fresh herbs and your favourite cheese and you have your own signature frittata. They are the ultimate recipe to improvise with, so change up any of the filling with different meats, veggies, cheeses and seasonings and you never have to have the same frittata twice. The possibilities are endless. They are a great way to use up your leftovers too! consulta medico pediatra medico doctor dermatologo veterinario veterinario psychologist consulta abogado abogado colombia abogado mexico abogado españa abogado psicologo doctor psicologo abogado abogado If you don't have a skillet with an oven-proof handle, carefully wrap it in foil paper before adding your frittata to the oven.
