Don’t worry. Despite the title, these delicious frittatas don’t actually contain any bacon. What they do contain is one of the most mouthwatering combinations of ingredients that I’ve ever tasted. With prep time and cooking time combined, these vegan recipes will take about 90 minutes to make, but the end result will be well worth the effort. I promise!
Here’s the list of ingredients you’ll need to have:
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 4-5 green onions, chopped with the green and white parts separated
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 medium potatoes, shredded (or 2 cups of frozen shredded potatoes)
- 2 tsp. salt, divided
- 1/2 tsp. pepper, divided
- 2 lb. firm tofu
- 2-3 Tbsp. soy sauce, to taste
- 4 Tbsp. nutritional yeast (optional)
- 2-3 Tbsp. faux bacon bits (Bacos is a good brand to try!)
You can begin preparing these vegan recipes by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. In a large sized skillet, go ahead and heat your olive oil over a medium heat setting. Add in the onion and the white portion of the green onions and sauté these ingredients together for 3-4 minutes. Next, add the garlic and sauté for another minute.
For your next step, you’ll need to increase the heat level to about medium high. Add your potatoes, one teaspoon of the salt, and ¼ the teaspoon of pepper. Cook all of these ingredients together for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are browned well on both sides.
In a food processor, combine the remaining salt and pepper, the tofu, soy sauce, and nutritional yeast. They should be blended together for 3-4 minutes on your highest speed setting. Once finished, the ingredients will have a creamy texture. Taking the mixture out of your food processor, put it in a large mixing bowl. Add in the faux bacon bits, the green portion of the green onions, and then the browned potatoes.
Once mixed together, transfer the whole mixture into a well oiled pie pan. Place it in the oven and allow it to bake for about 35 minutes. Once it’s done, the center will be firm. After removing it from the oven, let the frittatas cool for about 15 minutes, and then divide it into portions and serve it warm. These are vegan recipes that will be hit with everyone! While traditionally a breakfast food, frittatas can be served at any time of the day.
