On Sunday’s, I’m a big fan of making BAB’s (Big-Ass Batches) to make it easier to feed yourself during a busy week.
But, if you’re like me and you get bored easily, it’s not that fun to eat the same old food over and over.
That’s why I love morphing leftovers into brand new dishes, and frittata’s are my favorite way to do it.
Frittata’s are kind of like an Italian omelette or Spanish tortilla — veggies, meat, or even leftover pasta baked with eggs.
Super satisfying and a nice grab-and-go dish for breakfast, lunch, OR dinner.
They are WAY easier to make than you think.
In fact, a few fellow entrepreneurs who tested the Launch Diet (coming in June!) this past winter told me they were scared of making the frittata because it looked too involved.
So, I had to make this video to show you how friggin’ simple it really is.
Remember that easy One-Pot Dinner of Cauliflower, Green Beans, and Tomato Sauce?
Whelp, we’re turning them into a tasty, tomato-y frittata today.
Click on the video below to see how it’s done in less than 10 minutes…
Recipe: Cauliflower, Green Beans, and Tomato Frittata
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cups of leftover Cauliflower and Green Beans (click for recipe)
6 organic eggs
freshly ground black pepper
1-2 tbsp fresh herbs, like parsley or basil (optional)
- Preheat the broiler (on your oven, just press the “Broil” function and turn it on!).
- In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
- Add leftovers and let them heat up.
- Meanwhile, whisk 6 eggs, a pinch of salt and pepper, and fresh herbs (optional) with a fork until combined.
- Pour eggs over the leftovers in the pan. Shake the pan and let the eggs fall into the nooks and crannies of the veggies. Using a spatula, gently stir the eggs and shake the pan until the bottom begins to set.
- To check if bottom is set, you should be able to pull the egg mixture away from the sides of the pan in one piece without sticking.
- Transfer the frittata to the oven to cook under the broiler until the top turns nice and golden brown – you should see it bubbling like in the video.
- Remove from oven, let it cool, and slice it up like a pie.
Serve with a mixed greens salad or store in an airtight container for 2-3 days as a snack or easy meal.
