“People who love to eat are always the best people”

With back to work & school, September can be an insanely busy time of the year! So Holistic Nutritionist Connie Linton & I each came up with a simple, five ingredient meal to help ease your stress in the kitchen! You’re welcome 😉

Five Ingredient Frittata – By Connie

Although this weather may feel like the middle of July, itʼs true that summer is coming to an end. The traffic is more congested & people are a just a tad “shorter” if you know what I mean… hello, road rage. So after weeks of summer entertaining, itʼs this time of year that I tend to take it easier in the kitchen by adopting “5 Ingredient recipes”. Seeing as I’m a less is more kinda gal, using fewer ingredients makes meal preparation faster, easier AND saves shopping time & money!

Frittata Day or Night

When I was little, my mom worked full time & had so few hours in the day to prep for meals so a staple in our kitchen was Frittata. A full pan omelet made with whatever was leftover… usually vegetables! By adding freshly grated cheese & herbs it made the flavor stand out, transforming boring eggs into an oh so exciting meal!

Ingredients

  1. 4 eggs
  2. 2 green onions
  3. 1/2 cup of grated fresh cheese- I love Parmesan, but any kind will do.
  4. 1 red pepper
  5. 1 zucchini

Directions

  • Heat oven to 350F degrees
  • In a separate bowl beat the eggs & then add the cheese until well combined. Meanwhile in a pan, heat a little olive oil & add chopped green onion.
  • Let the onion sweat a bit & then add the chopped zucchini; I cut mine in 1/2 & then again in quarters. I then chop them so I have little quarters & they cook faster.
  • Once the zucchini has softened add the red pepper sliced thinly.
  • Sauté for a few minutes; if it gets dry add a little more olive oil.
  • Once the veggies look soft pour the eggs over the pan & let settle. If the side of the frittata starts to brown or looks cooked, its time to go in the oven pan & all (oh yes please make sure you are using a stainless steel pan or a pan that has a stainless steel handle! Do NOT use plastic)
  • Place the whole pan in the oven & bake for about 10 minutes.
  • Let cool another 10min.
  • Cut like a pie and serve with a salad or piece of toast Sooooo good.

I went apple picking with my cousin yesterday & immediately knew that I wanted to create a fabulous, fall inspired soup! Soups are my absolute favourite meal to eat during this time of year! So cozy, warm, & flavourful… love! Anyways, I had a few leftover sweet potatoes from the weekend & decided to try out a sweet potato & apple soup! Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

  1. 3 sweet potatoes; peeled and chopped
  2. 2 chopped apples (I used gala apples)
  3. 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  4. 2 cloves of chopped garlic
  5. 2 cups of organic, low sodium vegetable stock (or substitute with water)

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375F
  • Place chopped sweet potatoes onto a baking pan with the chopped garlic & drizzle with the olive oil
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender
  • Take sweet potatoes out of the oven & set aside
  • In a large saucepan or soup pot, add in 3 cups of vegetable stock, chopped apples & the baked sweet potatoes
  • Let sit on low-medium heat for 15-20 minutes
  • In batches of two or three, transfer contents from sauce pan into a blender & blend
  • Serve!

What are some of YOUR 5 ingredient meals?!
