Method

Sweet Potato Swiss Chard Frittata

 

 

CHOP your sweet potato – small diced ½ inch | 1cm + bell pepper | capsicum if using.

 

HEAT an ovenproof skillet, add olive oil + sweet potato + pepper + parsley.  Cook partially covered with a lid or ¼ sheet pan on low heat 3-7 mins.  Stirring often until sweet potato is starting to soften.

 

ADD swiss chard – cook 2 mins – stirring a few times

 

CRACK YOUR EGGS into a bowl, add salt, whisk well.

 

POUR WHISKED EGGS over the sauteed veg evenly and let cook on low heat for 2 mins until you can see it setting around the edges. Heat your broiler | oven grill.

 

PLACE FRYING PAN under the broiler | oven grill and cook for 2-3 mins. Check after 2 mins; eggs should be set and very lightly golden on top.

 

SERVE with homegrown sprouts, rocket, lettuce or crispy salad.  

Tips + Suggestions

PARSLEY is a mineral-rich superfood.  Cooking the parsley softens the flavour and retains nutrients as minerals are heat tolerant, unlike vitamins which diminish during cooking.

 

SUBSTITUTE SWISS CHARD for spinach, kale, chenopodium – good king henry, Asian greens, dandelion greens, bok choy.

 

SWAP sweet potato for butternut squash OR zucchini – cooking times may vary.

 

ADD onion, garlic, scallions, broccoli, cooked quinoa.

 

EGGS I portion 2 eggs per serving and use up to 8 eggs per frittata – the more eggs, the bigger the skillet!  BUY pasture-raised eggs and support your local farmer if you can!

 

SWAP EGGS FOR TOFU – scramble tofu with sautéed veg not quite the same as a frittata but still tastes great!
