Okay, to a few of my mates this menu could also be unfamiliar. Identical to once I first heard the dish identify “Frittata” I used to be curious and couldn’t wait to attempt it — the vegetarian/vegan model, in fact. Frittata and Quiche have some similarities; the preparation and even the style as they each use eggs. A quiche typically has a pastry base, whereas a Frittata doesn’t. Principally, a Frittata is Italian and Quiche is French. Frittata is extra of like an omelette. Thickness can differ from skinny and pancake prefer to thick with a golden crust and creamy middle. Frittatas may be stuffed with something you need with it.
On this recipe, I attempted to make it as easy however tasty as attainable. I’ve eaten quiche with eggs earlier than and I assumed it was good. And since I’m extra into vegan cooking I assumed I’d persist with utilizing tofu as my egg substitute. So if you happen to favor to make use of eggs as a substitute of tofu, be happy to take action.
