Last week I mentioned that there will be a whole bunch of breakfast and dessert recipes coming up. I wasn’t kidding!
But, just like some of you commented, breakfast, eggs and delicious vegetables can be eaten for any meal, vegetarian or not.
So I made frittata!
This recipe is lovely, and is stuffed with delicious black beans, spicy sweet potatoes, red peppers, cilantro and cheddar.
I love my eggs packed with colour!
And topping pretty much anything off with an avocado slice is always a good plan. Yum!
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
- 1 small sweet potato, diced and peeled
- 1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 jalapeño pepper, sliced
- 2 tsp liquid honey
- 1/2 cup vegetable broth
- 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 6 large eggs
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp milk
- 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
- Pinch of sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
- Avocado slices
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Over medium-low heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a large cast iron skillet. Once hot, add in diced sweet potato, black beans, minced garlic and chopped jalapeño. Stir and let cook for about a minute, and then add in honey, salt, pepper and vegetable broth. Cover and cook until the potatoes are soft and the liquid is mostly absorbed, about 8 minutes. Once cooked remove from heat and set aside.
- Meanwhile, in a separate skillet, add another tablespoon of olive oil and once hot, sauté peppers and onions for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they become soft. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cheddar and fresh cilantro. Add some salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
- Once sweet potato mixture is cooked, add sautéed peppers and onions to the potato skillet and mix together. Over low heat, add egg mixture to the vegetables and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring only once at the beginning to evenly disperse ingredients.
- Transfer skillet to the preheated oven and cook until middle is set solid, about 20 minutes.
- Serve warm and garnish with avocados, salsa, or any fun ingredient you can think of!
