Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I love having a full breakfast, so that it keeps me satisfied until lunch. A frittata is a wonderful option for a busy week. It can be made ahead and saved in the fridge. Frittatas also heat up well.
It is also a very versatile dish because you can make it with any number of different ingredients. For this particular recipe, I chose mushrooms, spinach and tomato. I prefer a frittata without cheese, but to get that same taste and consistency, I use nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast, and comes in the form of flakes or powder. It contains several vitamins and minerals, and is especially plentiful in B vitamins. The taste of nutritional yeast can best be described as 'cheesy' or 'creamy'. I sprinkle a little bit on top of the frittata and it tastes like cheese to me!
Try making this on a Sunday night so you can easily have breakfast ready for the week. You can add any type of vegetables you prefer, experiment!
