Vegetable Frittata with Roasted Tomato Salsa
Shred the soy cheese by hand 'cause fat-free soy cheese is too rubbery for the food processor. Washing the mushrooms after they're sliced adds moisture needed during the sauteing process for fat-free cooking. Serve with a salad of baby greens dressed in raspberry vinaigrette.
