Veggie Frittata 
 

Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables.  They can be prepared sweet or savory,  eaten cooked or raw.  Shred them on a box grater and throw the raw pieces into a smoothie or make hash browns.  Add diced pieces to omelettes and soups. Roast them whole and serve with yogurt or butter, cinnamon or nutmeg and toasted nuts for dessert.  Can you believe one vegetable could be so versatile? What’s even better is that we’ve got local sweet potatoes this week.  Choose from Orange Yams or O Henry’s from Frog Song Organics.

Ingredients:

6 eggs

½ cup milk or cream

2 cups mixed vegetables, small dice

choose your own combination of veggies:
   greens:  kale, chard. collards, dandelion, broccoli greens, arugula
sweet potatoes
broccoli or romanesco
leeks
carrots
peppers
sunchokes
radishes
fennel
mushrooms

1 Tablespoon fresh herbs
    choose from: cuban oregano, parsley, sorrel, cilantro, dill or rosemary

1 Tablespoon Coconut oil or butter
Shredded cheese or Nutritional Yeast
Salt & Pepper to taste

Instructions:

Heat the oil or butter over low heat in a 6-8 inch saute pan.  Whisk the eggs and cream together and add the fresh herbs.  Saute veggies lightly in fat, until they reach your prefered texture.  Add the egg mixture to the pan, season with salt and pepper.  Cover and cook on low untill eggs are set, about 15-20 minutes.  Top with cheese or nutritional yeast and enjoy.
