I’m a total breakfast person and I love having a yummy, protein-filled breakfast that’s both easy-to-make and will jump start my day. I get why people eat eggs for breakfast, because it’s a quick and easy protein. So what do you do when you don’t eat eggs? You make my breakfast frittatas! These babies have 11 grams of protein in them, without any add-ins! If you add a scoop of cheese sauce, you get even more!
I love to bake these up in the air fryer, but you can also cook them up in the microwave too. To make things even easier, I created a recipe for a frittata mix, so you can keep a jar on your counter for quick breakfasts. All you have to do is whisk it with cool water, stir in some chopped veggies, pour it into a greased ramekin or baking dish, and bake. To make things even more delicious, put a dollop of this cheese sauce on the top of the batter before baking (and some shredded vegan cheese if you like too). In other words, you can totally customize them however you like. Some of my favorite add-ins so far are kimchi, frozen corn, cheddar, scallions and pickled jalapeños, as well as zucchini, red onion cheddar.
And you know what else? This frittata mix is perfect for travel! I put the mix in a freezer zip-top bag, with a 1/3 measuring cup inside, and write the cooking directions on the bag with a sharpie. So easy!
One quick note is that the baking times could vary slightly depending on your microwave or air fryer, as well as your personal preferences on how firm you want it. I usually do about 5 minutes in my 1,000 watt microwave and about 15 minutes in my large Go Wise air fryer. The timing may also depend on your dish, as mine is a deep large ramekin, and something that’s shallow may take slightly less time to cook. I like mine firm on the outside, and a little soft inside. They will also firm up a bit if allowed to sit about 5 minutes before eating.
Oh, and if you want to up the protein even more, increase the nutritional yeast flakes to 1 tablespoon per individual frittata, and 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons for the large 10x batch. 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast flakes has 4 grams of protein!
Here’s the recipe for making a large batch of the frittata mix (10 servings)
365 grams garbanzo bean/chickpea flour
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast flakes (or 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons for extra protein!)
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
2 1/2 teaspoons granulated onion
To make: Whisk 1/3 cup mix with 1/2 cup cool water. Follow the rest of the instructions in recipe above.
