Loaded Savory Lactose-Free Veggie Frittata

Last updated: October 2022

Who doesn't love all-day breakfast? This dish exudes weekend vibes while providing nutritional balance in every bite. Plus, frittatas are an easy make-ahead meal to cut down on daily cooking time! A serving of nutritional yeast offers a savory, nutty, and cheesy flavor, along with exceeding the recommended daily allowance for thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B5, and vitamin B12.1

So try nutritional yeast in this recipe and over popcorn, pasta, gnocchi, and other dishes where you'd typically use Parmesan cheese. Customize your frittata by experimenting with various colorful vegetables. Each different colored plant-based ingredient is abundant in phytonutrients. Continue to "eat the rainbow" by pairing your frittata with a vibrant salad, a slice of whole-grain bread, or roasted vegetables.
