Banana Sunrise Frittata



Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Contains Eggs



Sometimes I can’t decide between a sweet or savory breakfast. So my partner and I developed this ultimate medley that has the best of both worlds. We combined pretty much every flavor we love in the morning: avocado with fresh garlic, fluffy eggs whipped with oat milk, a crispy veggie burger, caramelized banana, and spinach sautéed in olive oil. Plus a pinch of warming, invigorating spices. I feel so good after eating this breakfast, and it keeps me full for the perfect amount of time until lunch. Plus the ingredients have plenty of protein, fiber, and a good serving of vegetables and fruit.





RECIPE

Time: 18 minutes

Servings: 2


Ingredients:

2 eggs

1/4 cup oat milk (or other plant milk)

1 frozen veggie burger (I love Dr. Praeger’s or Amy’s)

1 ripe banana 2 tbsp olive oil

Handful fresh or frozen spinach

1 avocado

1 small garlic clove (optional)

Spices: salt, pepper, turmeric and smoked paprika (optional)


Method:

Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the veggie burger and sauteé for 5 minutes. Slice the banana in half at the middle, and then into quarters by slicing each half lengthwise. Add slices to the pan and then add in the spinach.


Allow to cook another 5 minutes while opening the avocado. Scoop out the avocado divided onto two plates and mash with a fork. Finely mince the clove of garlic and add to each portion of avocado. (You can also choose to add the garlic to the pan instead if you don’t like raw garlic). Sprinkle the avocado portions with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika. Now crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk with the oat milk. Add in a pinch of turmeric, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika.


Grab a spatula and flip the veggie burger and banana pieces before pouring the egg mix into the pan. Allow the egg mix to cover the entire bottom of the pan around the veggie burger, making one large frittata. Place a top over the pan and cook on lower heat until the surface of the egg looks completely cooked (usually another 5 minutes). The egg will usually start to puff up around the veggie burger when it is done. Then use the spatula to divide the veggie burger in half and split the frittata between the two plates that have the avocado.


Serve hot and enjoy!
