 kale and mushroom frittata

Recently I was looking through my fridge and trying to figure out what to cook. The idea of a frittata hit me because they are quick and easy to prepare. They are also a good way to use up leftover veggies and meat in your kitchen. Here is my recipe for a kale and mushroom frittata. This frittata would make a great addition to any brunch menu. With these tasty portabella mushrooms , I  promise that you won’t miss the meat.

Below is the printable recipe for your convenience.

  1. I’m impressed you have kale in your fridge! My husband is always wanting me to buy it, but I’m not really sure what to do with it. Thanks for the idea!

    Thinking of you, btw, with the upcoming birth! Best wishes!

    • Believe it or not, kale is a staple at our house. We like to juice it and I sometimes serve it as a side. Of course when it is juiced, I add it to sweeter items like carrots and apples. The sauteed kale recipe is here: http://thedomesticlifestylist.com/2012/03/19/recipe-and-dream/. Make sure you soak it really well in water first. There always tends to me a lot of dirt and grit. It tastes great in this frittata too. I hope that you get to try it. Thanks for thinking of me Erica! I can feel the “love” through my computer screen.

  2. Thanks for the recipe! It’s vegetarian June at our house – perfect time to try this one!

    • Hi Amy! I have heard of “meatless Monday”, but making a whole month vegetarian in a meat-eating household is certainly intriguing. Would definitely help cut food costs.

  3. Thanks for the recipe. I will try it for our meatless Monday. Sounds like a great way to introduce kale to my children. How much kale do you use in your juice recipe?
