Vegan Chickpea Flour Mini Frittatas

These little mini frittatas are easy to make and really yummy! They don’t taste exactly like their eggy counterparts, but they are very similar and delicious in their own right!

Make them ahead of time for a quick grab and go breakfast or lunch, or just enjoy them straight out of the oven (as we often do!)

For the tofu seasoning check out our tofu scramble recipe.

You can get pre-made muffin liners but it is cheap and easy to make your own from baking parchment.
