- Spring Vegetable Frittata
Spring Vegetable Frittata
- 8 organic, pasture-raised eggs
- 1/4 cup 59 ml full-fat coconut milk
- 2 cup 473 ml leeks washed and thinly sliced
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 1 cup 237 ml shitake mushrooms sliced
- 4 asparagus stems shaved into ribbons
- 3 tbsp ghee or coconut oil
- fresh dill
- salt + pepper
Preheat oven to 350 °F.
Heat two tablespoons of ghee or coconut oil in a cast iron skillet. You can use a frying pan as long as it does not have a wooden or plastic handle.
Add garlic and leeks. Sautee over a medium heat until soft.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of ghee or coconut oil in a large frying pan. Add mushrooms and a pinch of salt, sautéing over high heat until browned.
While the leeks and mushrooms are cooking, use a vegetable peeler to shave ribbons of zucchini and set aside.
Next, whisk together eggs and coconut milk until frothy. Season with salt and pepper.
Pour egg mixture over the leeks and shake to even out the pan.
Top with sautéed mushrooms and raw asparagus ribbons.
Cook over a medium heat until the edge of the frittata starts to pull away from the pan (about five minutes).
Transfer frittata to the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the eggs are complete set.
Serve with salt, pepper and a garnish of fresh dill.
