How to Morph Leftovers into a 10-Minute Frittata

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.

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 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
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1-2 tbsp fresh herbs, like parsley or basil (optional)


  1. Preheat the broiler (on your oven, just press the “Broil” function and turn it on!).
  2. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  3. Add leftovers and let them heat up.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk 6 eggs, a pinch of salt and pepper, and fresh herbs (optional) with a fork until combined.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

    Thank you, Heather! I added chopped-up fresh tarragon and parsley and some kale that was starting to look unhappy along with the i-talian one pot meal and wow! Super yum!
