Easy Vegan Breakfast Strata for Mother’s Day
This Mother's Day, beloved traditions stay the same but with a plant-based twist. Breakfast strata is a layered casserole typically made with eggs, fresh vegetables, spices, and herbs – basically whatever you enjoy in a frittata. In our dairy-and-egg-free version of this classic breakfast recipe, we swapped real eggs for pourable vegan eggs that are easier to use and better for your health with zero cholesterol and fat.
All you need is five minutes to prepare the casserole and when the dish is in the oven, curate your serving tray to surprise mom with breakfast in bed on her special day. When the casserole is ready to be removed from the oven, let it cool for five minutes, cut it into six pieces, plate each one with a fork and let mom savor every bite.
Prep: 5 minutes
Bake: 35 minutes
