with apple spinach salad

Active: 25 min Total: 40 min
You may have never thought to pair sweet potatoes and eggs together, but creamy sweet potatoes make this frittata feel rich. We love sauteing down spinach because you pack so much healthy goodness in just a few bites. Plus, this freezes well too - perfect for a weekend brunch or to bring to a busy family.
Smarts: We give the sweet potatoes a light nuke - it helps reduce overall cooking time.

  1. Heat oven to 400F (204C) degrees.
  2. Place sweet potatoes into a microwave-safe dish or bowl. Cover with wet paper towel and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  3. Heat a 9” to 10” (22.5 cm to 25 cm) skillet over medium heat. Add cooking oil and then onions to heated oil. Saute until softened, ~3 minutes.
  4. Next add in microwaved sweet potatoes. Saute until sweet potatoes are completely softened, 2 to 5 minutes.
  5. Add in as many spinach leaves as can fit into the pan. Add more as more space is made.
  6. Once leaves are all wilted, pour in the egg mixture. Stir until all ingredients are evenly distributed. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a knife comes out cleanly.
  7. While frittata is baking, chop apple and prepare vinaigrette by whisking together shallots, balsamic vinegar, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, and oil. TASTE and then season with salt and pepper. Toss vinaigrette with apples and baby spinach.
  8. Serve frittata warm out of the oven with salad on the side.
