It is my firm belief that all recipes are stolen.
Or at least the inspiration for a recipe comes from another recipe, or food you have tried.
Unless you cook with a lot of foams and things like on "Top Chef".
Or if you invented an olive oil lollipop.
I had planned on cooking something with tofu tonight, but was completely inspired by this recipe. Which was in fact inspired by another recipe. I know you are disappointed at the lack of tofu in your Tuesday blog-fix.
Get over it.
As with all things I played with the spices, omitted things I didn't like, and I added what I do like!
Sweet Potato Frittata
1 sweet potato, peeled, cubed, and boiled (or steamed)
1 cup baby spinach
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 egg whites
2 tbsp water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
1 tsp thyme
1/4 cup shredded cheese
While the sweet potato was boiling, I whisked the eggs and water and spices together. It always takes me a few screw-ups to get the egg white out. I'm no pro.
I greased my cast iron skillet (have I mentioned I love that thing), and sautéed the garlic and spinach for about a minute, and then threw in the potato for about another minute.
I poured in the egg mixture and made sure it was all distributed evenly.
I (and by I mean Matthew, that puppy is heavy) lifted the pan into a 400 degree oven where it sat for about 8 minutes.
The cheese went on top and into the broiler it went for another minute or so.
I'm not one to toot my own horn (well maybe I am), especially because this recipe is "stolen". But...yum.
I done good.
Question of the day: What's your philosophy on breakfast for dinner, or "brinner"?
Yay, nay, or all the stinkin' time?
