Easy JUST Egg Frittata (plant-based)

If you are looking for a simple plant-based frittata recipe that will satisfy everyone at your table, look no further! This easy Just Egg Vegan Frittata is SO delicious and shockingly similar to its eggy counterpart!

I have to admit, I am still mastering how to scramble Just Eggs. So I was pleasantly surprised with the consistency and taste in a frittata. I am guessing it’s the combination of a cast iron skillet and the oven heat that does wonders for this awesome egg replacement.

After a few tries, I have honed in on the egg-to-veggie ratio as well as the amount of oil needed to coat the pan for the oven. The recipe itself is customizable to suit your veggie taste preferences too.

Why JUST Egg?

Just Eggs are an awesome plant-based egg alternative made from mung beans.

In addition to being plant-based, Just Eggs are way more sustainable: they use 98% less water, 86% less land, and 93% fewer CO2 emissions than chicken eggs!

Plus, JUST Egg’s nutritional stats are pretty impressive too. It contains 67% less saturated fat and more protein than a chicken egg. It’s also free of cholesterol and full of good-for-you polyunsaturated fat.

Just Eggs come in a bottle and can be found in the egg section in many grocery stores. You can search here to find it near you.
