Mondays can quickly get away from me around here! The morning goes by fast. Then it’s time for Bowie to come home from school. Then it’s off to help do distribution for our organic coop. If I’m lucky, I get home in time to make dinner before Dave gets home. If I’m not lucky, or planned poorly, we don’t eat til 8. Such is the sacrifice for produce.
Tonight, we got all the sorting done quite quickly, so I got to come home and make dinner in a timely manner. However, I had also planned ahead and had a meal in mind that I could prep and have ready in under 30 minutes. I had gone the night before to one of my newest blog obsessions, Edible Perspective . Her recipes are gluten free and lots are vegan as well. Expect to see lots of inspiration from there. I’ve made almost a dozen of Ashley’s recipes, and they’ve all been amazing.
I do apologize in advance for not having more pretty food prep pictures.
Mmmmm…. look at all that melty goat cheese goodness!
Kale, sweet potatoes, and asparagus layered in fluffy, eggy goodness, topped with goat cheese.
Bacon Veggie Goat Cheese Frittata
(adapted from Edible Perspective’s Sweet Potato + Spinach Frittata)
2 slices thick cut bacon
8 large eggs
2 tablespoons half + half (cream or milk will work)
1 large or 2 small thinly sliced sweet potato
3-4 cups of lacinato kale
3-4 spears of asparagus
1/2 cup diced onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese
1. Whisk eggs, half and half, salt, pepper, and paprika in a bowl. Set aside.
2. Cook bacon in oven proof pan, preferable cast iron. Remove. Preheat oven to 450•
3. Add thinly sliced sweet potatoes and onions, cook until soft. 8-10 minutes depending on thickness. Stir frequently. Add asparagus and garlic. Saute 3 more minutes.
4. Add chopped kale and cook until wilted, about 2-3 minutes more. Add bacon back in.
5. Remove half of mixture from pan. Pour in whisked eggs.
6. Allow eggs to cook most of the way through. Lift edges with spatula while it cooks to allow uncooked eggs on top to spill down and reach the heat.
7. When eggs are almost cooked through, sprinkle goat cheese on top and place in oven for 5-10 minutes til eggs are set. (Or you can put under broiler)
