Stuffed chick pea flour frittata

Weekends sometime call for a savoury breakfast. Especially when we’re braving wintery mornings to watch the nine-year-old-ninja play soccer.chick pea flour fritatta (Small)

The savoury option of old was an egg frittata.

I used to like the ease of throwing it together and topping with a good kasundi or other delicious home made chutney.

Luckily there are a couple of plant-based equivalents made with tofu OR a chick pea flour batter.

Today’s recipe is the latter.

You can change up the spices & fillings to suit your tastes, eg, Indian, Italian, Indonesian. Or make it plain like a crepe and serve with hot saucy veges.

Chick pea flour is a great source of protein. And an excellent gluten free option.

Once mixed it likes to sit for a while – I mix the batter before chopping veges.

If you’re super organised you can make the batter the night before.

For a richer option (and obviously higher in fat) mix the flour with a coconut cream/water combo.

Today we’re just using water and whatever I happened to have in the fridge.

chick pea flour fritatta 2 (Small)

Whisk together & rest:
1 cup chick pea flour
1 cup water
1 tsp cumin seeds
Pinch of salt

Saute:
1 red onion, chopped finely
Capsicum, chopped finely
Cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 Tbl capers
Handful fresh herbs, parsley, thyme, rosemary
Chilli (optional)

In a heavy pan, saute onions and vegetables until soft. Add capers, chilli & fresh herbs.
Pour in the batter, cover and cook over a low heat.
Cook until the top is firming up, watching that it’s not burning underneath – it’s a delicate dance.
Brown it off under the grill.

You could sprinkle a little dairy-free mozzarella or nutritional yeast on top before grilling.
