Italian Tofu Frittata
I have seen a lot of recipes on TV of Spanish frittata;s which look absolutely yum with those potatoes, cheese, zucchini and loads of egg;s..... wait a min!! eggs!!!
Well that's what it is made of.
Its a Spanish omelet using lots of veggies cooked on the stove and then baked in the oven to finish it.
I have substitute tofu to eggs and the end result pretty amazing :)!
To give it a little more special "Me" effect,,i tried to add more of Italian ingredients to it like fresh basil, tomatoes, etc...
So here is my version of Frittata!:)
This one is for Madhuram 's event!
1 pack silk tofu (about 200 gms)
1/4th cup flour
1/4th cup cheese (u can avoide cheese, i did)
Half onion finely chopped
2-3 fresh basil leaves finely chopped
Few stems of spinach finely chopped
1 clove garlic finely chopped
In a pan heat some olive oil and add garlic and onions saute for about a min and then add rest of the ingredients to it. Add little salt and turn off the heat.
In a mixi add the flour and tofu, blend well.
Add this paste to ur veggies and cook for about a min stirring continuously.
Grease a pie pan or a cake tin and fill this mix of tofu and veggies in it.
Bake it for about 40 min at 180 deg C or till a stick comes out clean.
U could mix all the ingredients and cook it on a nonstick which will make it more crispy :) and that crisp part tastes like cheese even if u dontt add cheese to it.
Also i would recommend to eat this with mustard sauce and a spicy chili sauce :)
Trust me ud love it!!
The end result is pretty soft, i guess adding some boiled potatoes would give it a more cake like texture. I did not want to add potatoes cuz i wanted it to be low calorie.
