Spicy Veggie Frittata for One! GF, BED, SCD!

Big day here today…you know why?
It’s Postcard Day!!
That means that I’m sending out picture postcards letting agents and casting directors know that I’m back in town and ready. to. work!
So that means I had to have a good breakfast. Something that will help me push through the morning with particular gusto!
yum to the max!
Enter: a Spicy Veggie Frittata for One!
so flavorful!
(I’m sorry to all my vegan friends, but there’s no vegan substitute for this…)
amazing broccoli!
To clarify, I’m an egg-eating vegan.
Usually breakfast is one of these….but to be honest, I just haven’t had the energy to clean the juicer lately. #lazy
So anywho, this frittata is SO delightful – and it keeps you full for hours! And SO healthy too — just be sure to use pastured, farm fresh eggs from “happy chickens.”
what a plate!
Here’s what you need:
3 egg whites (or 2 whole eggs) cracked in a separate bowl
1/3 red pepper, diced
1/4 onion, diced
1 cup broccoli, broken into florets
1 cup spinach, chopped
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cumin
pinch of cayenne (if you like it spicy) *optional
salt and pepper
6 cherry tomatoes, sliced (garnish)
Spray a small omelet pan, with olive oil, and then saute your onions in 1 tsp EVOO, salt, pepper, and your spices. Let them soften for about 3 minutes. Then, add you broccoli, stir it around, and then put a lid on it to allow the broccoli to steam for about 4 minutes. Then, add in your red pepper and spinach. Let them cook for about 3 minutes.
Take your pan off the heat and stir in your eggs so that they coat all the veggies. Put it back on the heat and do not touch it, and let it cook, with the lid on for about 3-4 minutes. Run a spatula all around the sides to loosen it. Then, slide your frittata onto a plate (the top will not be completely set yet). Spray the pan with olive-oil spray. Then, place your pan upside-down on top of the plate and carefully flip it out into the pan again. Let the bottom side cook for about 3 more minutes. Slide it onto the plate, garnish with tomatoes and enjoy!
such a delicious meal!
This is a breakfast, or even dinner! All of the veggies are crunchy and warm – so perfect. And SO colorful!!
Gluten Free, Body Ecology Diet and Specific Carb Diet Friendly!
And the flavor is outrageous! I love the combo of chili powder and cumin together – it’s a warm-spiciness that just satisfies the soul! And it makes the house smell amazing!
so vegg-i-ful! :)
The addition of the broccoli really fills you up too! Not only are you getting fiber, calcium, Vitamin C, folate, and iron, but you’re adding bulk to plow you through until lunch!
the tomatoes are the perfect addition!
And the fresh, juicy tomatoes add a nice *pop* to each bite!
What a great way to start the morning!
What’s you favorite way to “celebrate” breakfast? :)
Until tomorrow!
Need a great juicer? I did a lot of research, and found that Breville makes the best. Here's the tools I used in this recipe:
