Springtime Frittata

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
8 ounces broccoli rabe, sliced
1 cup leeks, sliced
1 red bell pepper, large dice
1 cup asparagus, sliced into 1-inch pieces, not including woody ends
1 tablespoon tamari
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 cup plain dairy-free creamer
2 pounds firm tofu, drained and rinsed
⅓ cup + 2 tablespoons chickpea flour
Pinch kala namak or black salt (optional but it will make it taste eggier)
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon turmeric
3 tablespoons fresh dill, minced, reserving 1 T. for sprinkling on the top
Salt, pepper and crushed red pepper, to taste
Smoked paprika, a dash for the top
Salsa for serving

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a large, deep, oven-safe skillet (cast iron works great for this), heat the olive oil over medium heat for one minute, using a brush to spread it around the whole interior. Turn the heat up to medium high, and add the broccoli rabe, leeks, asparagus and garlic; sauté for six minutes, add the tamari and garlic and cook another three minutes.

Meanwhile, in a blender, combine the tofu, chickpea flour, pinch of black salt, nutritional yeast, baking soda and turmeric. It will be thick, but blend until smooth.

Lower the heat and pour the blended tofu into the skillet with the veggies, also mixing in the dill, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. If your skillet isn’t oven-safe, transfer to a lightly oiled, deep baking dish. Mix until everything is incorporated together, then smooth the top so it’s level. Sprinkle paprika and reserved tablespoon of dill over the top and bake for 40 minutes. It will be golden and puffy when ready. Allow to sit for five minutes before slicing. Serve with salsa.
