Tofu Cookery: Zucchini Frittata

I’m a big fan of the frittata recipes in Vegan Brunch. When I saw a recipe for a zucchini frittata in Tofu Cookery I was intrigued. I read the ingredients list and saw that the recipe called for a fair amount of flour. Yep, flour. Essentially you are making a tofu-flour dough that you then bake. I figured this would either be completely delicious or completely horrible.

Turns out the latter was correct. This recipe was definitely a miss for me. The frittata was gummy even though it was fully cooked. I kept the leftovers in the fridge and they quickly turned slimy…not pleasant. I hate wasting food, so I froze the leftovers and hopefully I’ll figure out something to do with them. Any ideas?

  1. Wow. I’m sorry that didn’t turn out for you. If you live somewhere near someone who composts, you could use it for that. I hate wasting food also, but sometimes, there’s nothing for it but to toss something out. I’d suggest leaving out the flour next time and just making a straight-up tofu frittata. Somehow, I just don’t see tofu and flour going together. Or you could try the recipe using gluten free flour (since gluten is what makes flour so gummy to start with). Just a thought.

      Hi Patricia! I actually have made successful tofu-only frittatas before, but for MoFo my theme is to cook all month out of the book, Tofu Cookery, so I followed the recipe which contains flour. Great idea about the compost though, that might be all this poor thing is suited for. 🙂

  2. Ah boo, I hate recipe fails. Too bad this one didn’t work out. Could you crumble it up and make a scramble with it? Sorry, I don’t have much for ideas.

    Bummer!! This reminds me of the weird concoctions I used to make from my old 70s vegetarian cookbooks. Thank goodness frittatas have come a long way since Tofu Cookery!

    Green zucchini squash is the worst, Yellow crock necks or some patty pans please.
