Serves 2-3 egg lovin’ ladies (or 2 patient gents)

Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? This past week, I made my first frittata EVER with brussel sprouts and purple fingerling potatoes. Purple is my favorite color — just call me Princess! This recipe is super easy and ultra-yummy — if you like eggs.

PRE-HEAT OVEN: 350 degrees Fahrenheit

You will need:
5-6 Free-range/organic eggs
4-6 purple fingerling potatoes chopped (slice 1 of the potatoes thinly for the top)
a handful of brussel sprouts chopped finely
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1/2 onion chopped finely (i used sweet onions since brussel sprouts are a lil’ bitter)
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp dried oregano or chives or both
1/2 tsp dried thyme
Salt (1 tsp) and Pepper (1/2 tsp)
2 TBSP olive oil
1/2 cup-ish of almond milk (or organic cow’s milk)
1/2 juice of lemon and zest
goat’s cheese (optional)

chef’s knife
large mixing bowl
cast iron skillet
whisk or a spoon will do

1. In a large bowl, add eggs, onions, garlic, lemon zest, spices, olive oil, almond milk, and all spices
it should NOT be super thick nor watery … start with a little milk then add

2. In the same bowl, add the chopped brussel sprouts and potatoes then whisk/mix until ingredients come together

3. Pour egg and veggie mixture into a medium to large skillet

4. Place purple fingerling slices on top for color and fun (and cheese if you wish)

5. Place skillet in pre-heated oven

6. Cook for 15-20 minutes (until it’s bubbly on top and little brown underneath)

7. Clean while you wait !



Squeeze lemon juice over frittata, drizzle ex voo*, and serve with a green salad, Applegate chicken apple sausage, toast & jam. Mega easy and delicious!!

  • Rest in Power to Mr. Dick Gregory. His books and talks inspired me to ask questions, love myself and my people and dig deeper. If you can get your hands on his book, Natural Diet for Folks Who Eat: Cookin' With Mother Nature. It's a wonderful witty introduction to natural foods and the digestive system. Giving thanks to have lived in the same era as him. #dickgregory #naturalfood #book #healthbook #wdiet #cookbook #rip
  • What an adventure!!! After several attempts to find the local "KFC" spot, we made it last night with the help of four local friends. The kuku (Swahili) or chicken spot has been going strong for more than 30 years. The original owner passed down the biz to his grandson, Mfanyge, pictured here. Nearly every evening, Mfanyge sets up shop for a limited time in the evenings and only fries one big batch then closes shop abruptly. The key to finding its obscure location is to look for the wicker flame ๐Ÿ”ฅ I'm NOT a huge fan of chicken ๐Ÿ— but this was absolutely the juiciest and well seasoned chicken I've EVER eaten. He also adds a secret lime sauce to each piece. I woke this morning licking my fingers in search of any leftover juice embedded under my nails. The other images are of a couple food stalls in the surrounding area ... With limited light, vendors sell everything from fresh watermelon ๐Ÿ‰and avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘ slices to fried cassava and rice balls. The fried rice balls or kitumbuu were delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹ too. #KFC #africa #tanzania #chicken #friedchicken #market #riceball #watermelon #avocado #eastafrica #wdiet #foodstories #traveling #foodtravel #nightmarket
  • The inside of a graviola fruit aka #soursop #guanabana #custardapple or #Brazilianpawpaw The flesh is deliciously sweet ... but don't eat the seeds. Scientists have been studying the active compounds and chemicals in graviola since the 1940s. Compounds that have anti-tumorous properties ... still more research to do but some alternative healers use graviola to treat certain types of cancer. Always consult your doctor, if you're dealing with any major health issues. #tropicalfruit #graviola #fruit #tropical #cancer

  • The Swahili word for coconut is nazi ... it's the only nazi I support ... unless it means cheese ๐Ÿง€ in another language ๐Ÿ˜€Sooooo many benefits to drinking coconut water, eating the meat and I use coconut oil on my skin and my hair daily ... except when I'm beachin' it up. Shea butter is a better sunscreen for the skin. #coconut #swahili #traveling #africa #zanzibar #beach #coconutwater
