Vegan Greek Frittata
On Parks and Recreation, Ron Swanson once said, “there has never been a sadness that can't be cured by breakfast food.” I totally agree. Breakfast food is the best kind of food, and it certainly puts me in a better mood whenever I have it.
I adore breakfast, brunch, dinner, or any meal that includes frittatas, tofu scrambles, hash browns, quiches, and omelets. Spring always seems like the perfect time to throw a bunch party and cook up a bunch of breakfast dishes. I guess it’s because Easter and Mother’s day fall during the season. Or maybe it’s due to the abundance of brunch-perfect produce, such as asparagus and artichokes.
Frittatas are one of my favorite brunch dishes. They're super easy to make, and you can include just about any type of veggie in the mix. If it's just Dennis and I eating it, one recipe will give us enough food for a few meals. I often make them with tofu, but I chose chickpea flour for this recipe because I wanted to include tofu feta. Tofu feta in a tofu frittata seemed like a bit too much.
The "Greek" in this recipe comes from the feta, olives, spinach, and artichoke hearts. It's a combination I really love.

How to Make Vegan Greek Frittata
This recipe is super easy to make!
- First you mix together the base ingredients.
- Then you fold in the filling ingredients and pour it into a pan.
- And finally you bake your frittata for about 45 minutes.
I used frozen spinach in this recipe because it doesn’t require sautéing before it’s used in the frittata. Make sure it’s well-drained though, or your frittata will end up watery. I use my tofu press to drain frozen spinach, but you can use a colander and a heavy bowl. If you want to use fresh spinach, just sauté or steam it before mixing it into the frittata base. Frozen kale or mixed greens can be used, if you prefer. I'm using frozen kale here, because Dennis can't eat spinach.
I like to use my homemade tofu feta in this recipe. You can also use store-bought. Violife makes a good nondairy version, and so does Follow Your Heart.
This greek-style vegan frittata is made with chickpea flour. Chickpea flour is sometimes called garbanzo bean flour, besan, or gram flour. It’s made from ground chickpeas, and it’s high in protein and is gluten-free. It can be a great egg replacer in breakfast dishes. You can also make omelets and pancakes with it.
Serving Your Frittata
You can serve this Greek Frittata for New Year's Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, or anytime you have a little sadness that needs to be cured! I like to serve it with roasted potatoes and sautéed greens. It's great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner.
Store any leftovers in an air-tight container in fridge for up to five days.

I hope you enjoy it, Kathy!
Breakfast food is the best! Before I went vegan, I wasn't a big breakfast fan, but now I just love it. This frittata sounds wonderful, and it includes so many of my favorite ingredients.
Thank you, Cadry! I wasn't too crazy about breakfast food before going vegan, either! I think that's a testament to how good vegan breakfasts are!
