I’ve been having writer’s block lately. It would appear that my mind has been solely wrapped around food. I’m not even close to kidding. Maybe it’s the time of year, the extra stress I’ve been dealing with or my recipes are just THAT good (that one was a joke). Literally though, I’ve been staring blankly at the computer screen trying to come up with some creative thing to talk about…and nope, still got nothing. So lucky for you, you don’t have to read my rambling of life’s events, random thoughts or any off topic discussions. This frittata will just have to speak for itself and hopefully stand up to meet any expectations. Though really how can you go wrong with a recipe that basically covers breakfast, lunch, dinner AND makes awesome leftovers. (Notice I asked a question but ended it with a period…see what I did there?) The idea of eggs, veggies and spaghetti squash all wrapped into one bite will make you forget I just spent the last several sentences proving my point that food has literally consumed my head…and now yours too, hopefully! 😉
Spaghetti Squash Frittata
Serves: 2/Prep time: 5 minutes/Cook time: 40 minutes
- 1 small spaghetti squash (you will need 2 cups shredded)
- 3 eggs
- 1 c kale, chopped
- 1/2 c mushrooms, sliced
- 1/4 c white onion, diced
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
- To prepare the spaghetti squash, preheat oven to 350F. Wash and slice the squash in half and place cut sides down onto a baking sheet. Roast about 25-30 minutes or until fork tender. When done, shred with a fork into a medium sized bowl and set aside.*
- Lightly spray or grease a small frying pan and add in chopped mushrooms and onion and sauté over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes. When onions are translucent and fragrant remove from pan and set aside.
- Crack the eggs into the bowl with the squash and add the spices. Mix until combined.
- Mix in the kale, mushrooms and onion and then pour the mixture into the same frying pan, cover and cook over medium heat for about 8 minutes or until eggs are cooked through.
- Remove frittata from heat, slice and plate to serve.
*Note: You can roast the spaghetti squash ahead of time for faster cooking time. Any extra spaghetti squash not used in this recipe works great as leftovers, too!
