Vegetable Frittata With Roasted Tomato Salsa

Serve this dish with a salad of baby greens dressed in a raspberry vinaigrette. Be sure to shred the soy cheese by hand fat-free soy cheese is too rubbery for the food processor and can crack the work bowl. Washing the mushrooms after they're sliced adds moisture needed during the sauteing process for fat-free cooking.
