First meal of Mostly Meatless March! We had a ton of eggs in the fridge and I was not feeling creative, so this is what happened. Inspired by a recipe on Chow, I made it with mostly egg whites to make it a little more low cal. Frittatas are one of my favorites for the versatility and clean out the fridge ability. It was quite good, and a nice start to being Vegetarian for a month (well, Pescetarian). The leftovers will make a great breakfast!
- 8 egg whites
- 4 whole eggs
- 3/4 cup skim milk
- 1/2 – 1 cup kale, blanched and chopped
- 1/2 cup roasted red pepper, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1/2 teaspoon thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 cup shredded pepper jack, divided
Preheat oven to 400. Whisk together eggs, milk, garlic, and spices. Add kale, red pepper, and 1/2 cup cheese and stir. Pour mixture into a pie plate or other safe baking dish, sprinkle top with remaining cheese, and bake for 10-15 minutes or until set and golden brown on top.
