There were some nights that would catch my mother off guard, when she would look up at the clock and gasp. She would hurry into the kitchen, and I would hear her crack a few eggs, the sizzle of the pan, and as my father would walk in the door, a golden frittata would be puffy and ready to slice.

This was her secret to a last minute supper, one that no one would know was unplanned. Except now that I have a family of my own, I want to wink at her up in the heavens.

Another secret: frittatas are perfect for cleaning out the fridge. You can throw just about anything into a frittata and have a well rounded meal.

I had nearly a dozen egg whites in my fridge after making my daughter a birthday croquembouche, and I was secretly glad. If there’s one thing better than a frittata, it’s an egg white frittata — especially this time of year when I feel the urge to eat lighter and leaner.

Sweet potatoes were one thing I remember often landing into my mother’s frittatas, and rather than dicing them, I pulled out my spiralizer. I love my spiralizer. Vegetables become more enticing, and when January’s good intentions beckon, it’s a good way to keep up the healthy eating.

This particular spiralizer I especially love because it is designed with so many thoughtful touches by Ali at Inspiralized. We had the chance to meet in person last autumn, and I can tell you that all her hard work has made The Inspiralizer a tool that you will love to use again and again. She’s thought of everything to make it easy to use, you’ll want to use it everyday. You will want to spiralize EVERYTHING.

Spiralized sweet potatoes swirl in this frittata, with kale and some sweet onions, and a hit of Parmesan cheese and dollops of mozzarella make this a one dish wonder. If you’re like our family, and are trying to eat more vegetables, this is one to add to your arsenal. It’s a simple dinner, an easy brunch, and if you have leftovers, you’ll love it for lunch. And then you’ll want to do it all over again, with all the other veggies in your fridge.

Servings 4 servings
Calories 220kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato ends trimmed, peeled and halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped kale leaves about 3 stalks, trimmed and stalks removed
  • 10-12 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup low fat milk
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt plus more to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425° F and place an oven rack in the center of the oven.
  • Using a spiralizer, make ribbons of your sweet potato. On the Inspiralizer, I used the B blade.
  • Heat a 10-inch skillet (cast iron or non stick works best) over medium heat. Add the oil and twirl the pan to evenly coat, making sure the coat the sides of the skillet. Add the onion, and cook for about 3 minutes, or until they begin to wilt. Stir in the sweet potatoes, season with a light touch of salt, and let it cook for about 5 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes just start to soften and the onions caramelize, stirring occasionally. Stir in the kale leaves.
  • Quickly whisk together the egg whites, milk, 2 teaspoons salt, pepper, and paprika. Whisk in the parmesan cheese, then pour the eggs into the skillet. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, then place in the oven to bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until the frittata is lofty and the center is no longer runny when you insert a knife. Remove from the oven, let it stand for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Notes

If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can slice the sweet potatoes with a knife or use a peeler or julienne peeler.

    This sounds awesome! I have all the ingredients (okay, so half & half instead of milk). Maybe I’ll make this on Friday, but using whole eggs.
    For the KitchenAid spiralizer, once I use the “ribbon”, should I cut the long ribbon into more manageable pieces? Or maybe I’ll use a mandoline.

      This is just as wonderful with whole eggs, Olga! I don’t have the KitchenAid spiralizer, but I can just imagine how pretty long ribbons will be. Definitely cut them to make it manageable. But really, thin slices with a mandoline or knife will work, too!

    Liren, I’ve been on the fence about buying a spiralizer.  I almost put it on my holiday gift wish list.  Now I wish I had.  Your frittata looks so colorful and satisfying.  I’m convinced!  I need to get on the spiralizing ban wagon.

      It’s not too late! I really love having the spiralizer – it makes things instantly fun, plus to be honest, slicing sweet potatoes can be tiresome, and spiralizing it is so much easier. I hope you get one!
