Vegan Quiche / Frittata

Before going vegan, I used to make huge veggie frittatas each week as part of my meal prep. I loved having an easy, high-protein breakfast option to pack with a variety of veggies. This version, with tofu and chickpea flour, boasts all those benefits and more! You can customize it endlessly, store it for several days at a time and take it on the go on busy mornings.

Yield: 6-8 servings
