Vegan Bombay Sweet Potato & Pea Frittata
I’ve just had a wonderful day at Fare Healthy; I talked on a panel about all things organic with the Soil Association, met some of my lovely blogging friends (Sara of Shiso Delicious and Nina Nourish Atelier), had some quick business meetings (so many exciting projects coming up) and then helped lovely Nina with her food demo (I say helped – maybe I hindered 😂).
It was a great event with tons of inspiring speakers, health brands and entrepreneurs. Definitely feeling inspired.
This is one of my more creative recipes I would say, a vegan Bombay sweet potato & pea frittata.
So how do you create an eggless frittata? As usual I did lots of research and then came up with my own Niki version.
I decide to added in some of my favourite flavours here, so lightly spiced Indian spiced potatoes with soft caramelised onions and then the eggy part is made from a combination of firm silken tofu blitzed with almond milk, gram flour, nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavour and some lovely seasonings such as Dijon mustard, tamari & turmeric.
It came out really well, tasty, gooey and really quite eggy textured. I would love to hear what you think on this one!
I hope you like my recipe; if you recreate it tag on instagram with #rebelrecipes @rebelrecipes for a chance to be featured. Love Niki x

- Add the oil and onion and potato to a medium saucepan and fry for aprox 8 minutes until the onion and potatos are soft. Add in the spices and fry for a further minute. Remove from the heat.
- Firstly make the flax egg by adding the flax and water to a small pot. Leave for a few minutes.
- Add all the egg mix ingredients to a food processor and blitz until smooth & creamy. Remove from the processor and stir in the peas.
- Spoon the potatoes and onions into a medium loose bottomed cake tin greased with a little oil, then poor in the egg mix. Smooth out.
- Bake on gas mark 4 for 45 minutes until set and a little brown around the edges. Test that it’s set by inserting a skewer into the middle (just like a cake) if it’s clean when withdrawn it’s set. If not pop back into the oven for a few more minutes then test again.
- Allow to cool before removing from the cake tin.
