Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion sliced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 cup shredded sweet potato (1 small sweet potato)
  • 2 cups roughly chopped mushrooms
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup full fat canned coconut milk shaken (could use heavy cream if desired)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1 cup gruyere cheese or dairy free shredded cheese (optional)
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese or dairy free shredded cheese (optional) to top
  • To serve: fresh arugula, hot sauce or fresh herbs

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F to bake the frittata when it’s ready then add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a deep, oven-safe skillet (10 inch skillet is ideal) over medium heat. Once hot, add the sliced onion and cook, stirring frequently for 5-7 minutes, until the onions soften and start to turn a golden amber color, but aren’t totally caramelized. Once they’re done, add the shredded sweet potatoes, and mushroom and stir to cook for 2-3 more minutes.
  • While the veggies are cooking, whisk the eggs together with coconut milk, salt, pepper, parsley, chives and cheese.
  • Pour the egg mixture evenly over the cooked veggies (do not stir) and let it cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until the edges and bottom of the eggs just start to set in the pan.
  • Transfer the entire skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 16-18 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean or when the eggs reach an internal temperature of 160°F. If using, top with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and broil on high for 1-2 minutes until it’s melted and golden brown on top.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature with more fresh herbs, fresh arugula or hot sauce.

Notes

Storage Instructions:
Fridge: Allow the frittata to cool to room temp, cover in foil or in air-tight container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
