I pulled together a really nifty frittata made from organic eggs we bought at the Farmer’s Market, green onions, baby portabella mushrooms, kale leaves and grape tomatoes. A frittata, is an Italian crustless quiche really or maybe it is like a giant unfolded omelet. In any case, it is a really quick and easy dinner, lunch, brunch or breakfast. All it takes is some eggs and milk (I use Almond milk exclusively, but any milk will do) and some fresh chopped veggies and a frittata can happen.
I love a good frittata, plus I am always looking for ways to eat more kale. For this one I sautéed scallions, baby Bella mushrooms and kale in some coconut oil to get started. Not into kale? You can substitute spinach or some other green vegetable like asparagus or broccoli. I used an oven ready skillet to do my sauteing so it could easily go from stove top to the oven which I preheated to 350º degrees Fahrenheit. Once the greens and mushrooms become tender I like to toss in some grape tomatoes, they add both great fresh flavor and striking color.
The finished frittata is golden brown and delicious, just slice it into eight servings with a pizza cutter to serve four to eight people. All you need is a nice salad to round it out and it is a perfect light meal that is super good and so simple. I think the secret is the farm fresh organic eggs.
