Gluten-Free Asparagus Frittata

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frittatas have always been one of my favorite meals to make + eat for breakfast (or even lunch).

They are super simple to make, and full of flavor! You can literally whip up a frittata with any of your favorite veggies (if you don’t like asparagus)  – and it makes for a very satisfying + healthy meal.

I usually make my frittatas gluten-free (GF) and/or paleo friendly << find out more about what a Paleo diet is here. This Asparagus + Tomato frittata is GF, but not paleo because of the parmesan I added. If you omit the parmesan, then voila…you have a paleo meal too!

I like using Grape tomatoes for this recipe. This type of tomato just bursts in your mouth when you take a bite into your piece of frittata. Another good choice of tomato you may use is the Roma.  The ‘secret‘ ingredient I use for all my egg recipes is Shakshouka seasoning. WTH is Shakshouka you say???

{Bomb-ass Shakshouka seasoning!}

Shakshouka, traditionally is a poached egg dish in a spicy tomato sauce often seasoned with peppers, cumin, chili, garlic + onions. I came across this seasoning at Whole Foods Market (in the spices aisle). Now I can’t make an egg dish without it! It really kicks-up your eggs + adds a unique flavor. Use as much, or as little of this seasoning as you like. Because this frittata uses tomato + egg Shakshouka, is the perfect complement to the dish! I hope you enjoy (recipe below).
