Clean Out the Fridge Vegetable Frittata


  • Author: Shannon Doleac
  • Prep Time: 30 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4-6 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 eggs
  • 1/2 cup full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cups beets, peeled and sliced (1/8” thick)
  • 1 1/2 cups carrots, peeled and sliced (1/8” thick)
  • 2 cups chopped kale, or beet greens
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 cup Homemade Pesto 
  • 2 Tbsp. ghee or grass-fed butter
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Melt butter and add onions until they begin to soften, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add beets and carrots to the pan with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until veggies soften and just begin to brown, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add chopped kale and toss until just wilted.
  5. In a large bowl, gently whisk eggs until yolks and whites combine. Gently stir in coconut milk and remaining salt and pepper.
  6. Grease an 8 x 10 inch baking dish with ghee or butter. Add sautéed veggie mix and spread evenly in the dish. Pour the egg mixture over top and drizzle with pesto.
  7. Place in the oven for 30 minutes, or until eggs are set in the center.
  8. Serve warm or chilled.

Notes

Tip:

  • This recipe is an example of how to use different types of veggies in an egg bake. You may substitute other choices based on what you have on hand in order to use up leftovers or based on flavor preferences. For example, swap potatoes for beets or asparagus for carrots.

Options:

  • If you tolerate dairy well, you may substitute the coconut milk for an organic, grass-fed cream and sprinkle 1/2 cup shredded cheese on top of the dish before baking.

Simplify:

  • Make this dish the day before so it’s ready to go for a quick breakfast.
  • If you have leftover fresh or frozen homemade pesto, use it! If you have cooked leftover veggies you may substitute those and skip the sauté step.
