Alright, keeping it short and sweet today because my brain is running wild with behind the scenes business here at The Goodness Life. Big things are brewing in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes open for an announcement coming soon. Exciting stuff!
Now onto the food…
This is the meal that I chose for my birthday dinner. It’s quick and easy, which is a pretty standard requirement of mine, and downright delicious! Plus, hit it with some greens and I’m one happy lady.
WILD MUSHROOM AND LEEK FRITTATA WITH GREENS
1 red onion, coarsely chopped (1/2 for the egg mixture, 1/2 for the mushrooms)
1 leek, halved lengthwise and sliced into half-moons
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 pints wild mushroom mix (or any mushrooms will do)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp + 2 tsp fresh thyme (you can also used a dried “Italian” spice blend or any combination of basil, oregano, and thyme)
2 tsp balsamic vinaigrette (I just used a ‘splash’ – personal factoid: I am horrible at measuring things!)
salt and pepper
3 big handfuls mixed greens
optional: 1/8-1/4 cup goat cheese
In an ovenproof skillet (I used a 12 inch one), saute half of the red onion and the leek in 1 tbsp coconut oil on medium heat. Add salt, pepper, and 2 tsp thyme. Stirring often, let the onions and leeks caramelize, about 10-15 minutes.
While the onions are cooking, Saute the other half of the red onion in another pan (doesn’t have to be ovenproof) in the other 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Cook until the onions are tender and then add the garlic, mushrooms, 2 tsp thyme, salt and pepper, and a splash of balsamic vinaigrette. Cook on low-med heat until the mushrooms are done, about 10 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350F.
Whisk your 6 eggs together in a bowl and pour into the skillet over the onion and leek mixture. Leave the heat around 3-4 to set the bottom of the frittata, it should take just 2 minutes or so (At this point, sprinkle that goat cheese on top if you’re using it). Spread the mushroom mixture evenly over top and pop it into the oven for 7-9 minutes. Remove the skillet from the oven and top with greens. Voila! Birthday frittata, breakfast frittata, anytime frittata. Yum.
