This kale and pepper frittata is not only really tasty but it’s packed with protein and full of healthy nutritional ingredients too.
A great brunch idea for the weekend this kale and pepper frittata hits the spot perfectly and it’s really good for you.
The peppers which are rich in vitamins A, C and K add a delicious sweetness and crunch to this hearty recipe.
The kale, which, being one of the world’s healthiest foods, is excellent in aiding good digestion and in lowering cholesterol levels and the risk of cancer too.
Although I used yellow peppers and orange peppers, these were the only ones I had to hand use any that you have available!
It’s easier if you have a shallow omelette pan, or the bottom of an egg poaching pan, which is what I’m actually using in my pictures. 🙂
- 4 medium sized eggs
- 3 tbsp fat free yogurt
- Salt and Pepper to season
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 spring onions finely chopped
- ¼ red pepper chopped
- ¼ orange pepper chopped
- 30 g freshly chopped kale
- 2 tbsp freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
- Pre-heat grill on medium, shelf in upper position, but not too close to the heat.
- Break the eggs into a bowl, add the yogurt and beat together well, then season with salt and pepper.
- Heat the oil in a shallow pan.
- Add the spring onions and peppers, sauté for about 5 minutes until soft.
- Add the kale, sauté everything for a further 2 minutes.
- Pour the egg mixture into the pan and distribute it around to cover all the vegetables.
- Cook the frittata without stirring until the bottom is firm and light brown. Do not allow to burn.
- Remove the pan from the heat and sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the top.
- Place the pan under the grill for 4 – 5 minutes until the frittata is golden brown.
- Garnish with the parsley and then serve.
Serves 2 but can easily serve 4 for dinner. Nutritional values calculated below are for 2 servings
I also serve this kale and pepper frittata for Lady Lynne and I for dinner with lots of extra vegetables and a good quality complex carbohydrate such as wholegrain rice. So, it’s a pretty versatile dish overall. 😀
There’s lots of other frittata fillings that I love, not just kale and pepper, but for now I’ll start with this one! Check out my Recipe Menu for other breakfasts or recipes you might like. Follow my site if you like it for future updates as I add more. Thanks! 🙂
We were at Oktoberfest Glasgow on Saturday night and also celebrated a friend’s birthday beforehand at Amore in the Merchant City. I love Italian food! It’s the kind of food that I love to cook for Lynne and I so if I’m out at an Italian Restaurant, of which there are many excellent one’s in Glasgow, I like to have something different that I wouldn’t normally have at home. The Vitello Alla Milanese aka veal I had was pretty decent!
Here’s some of the more recognisable pictures from the Oktoberfest event. 😉 Obviously, it’s not a patch on the actual Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany which I’ve been lucky enough to go to twice, but we think (and hope) it was German Beer we were drinking!
The band played an assortment of beer drinking songs and modern music, there was much dancing on tables! 😀
The other guys we were with Davie, Joe and Danny. As you can see the party is in full swing! (Lol)
Oh dear! I looked at this photo for a while trying to decide whether or not to post it. In the end, it is what it is, we were having a great time, so there you go. And this was a photo being taken by birthday girl Catrina (right) of herself and Lynne (centre) that I barged in on!! 😈
You’ll see in the pictures we were completely covered from head to toe in warm clothes and waterproofs. And we have been ever since Saturday, it just has not stopped raining!! and whilst I can get through that, it’s beginning to annoy me as I’ve loads of recipes I want to photograph and the light is just not right!! 😡
Just 6 months ago I wouldn’t have bothered so much, but when you want great food photographs to go with your recipes, it matters! Funny how things change…..and change is afoot……. ❗
