Spring Vegetable Frittata

Packed with purple potatoes, sweet mini peppers, leeks and spinach, this easy frittata boasts incredibly fresh flavor.

Ingredients:
8 eggs
5 small purple potatoes, washed and thinly-sliced
4 sweet mini peppers, washed, seeded and chopped
2 leeks, trimmed and thinly-sliced
1 cup spinach leaves, torn into bite-sized pieces
½ cup mustard greens, torn into bite-size pieces
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 375°.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced potatoes to the skillet and sauté for about 6 to 8 minutes, until tender but firm. Remove from skillet. Add another tablespoon oil, then add the peppers, leeks, spinach, mustard greens and garlic. Sauté for an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until the greens are just wilted. Season vegetables with salt and pepper. Remove from skillet.

3. In a medium bowl, beat together the eggs and thyme with a pinch of salt and pepper. Return the potatoes to the skillet, arranging in an even layer. Top with vegetable mixture and then pour eggs evenly over the vegetables. Drizzle olive oil around the edge of the pan to ensure easy removal.

4. Transfer to oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the eggs have completely set in the center. Serve straight out of the skillet, cut into wedges, or flip onto a serving plate.

Variation: For added bite, try adding ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese to the egg mixture and then bake as directed.
