Carrot Noodle and Leek Frittata

Every year, for Mother’s Day, I remember we would make breakfast in bed for my mother. It was so much fun, preparing her breakfast. I don’t remember exactly what we would prepare for her (I was 7 or so), but I remember toast, cereal, and then my father would prepare the coffee.

I wasn’t making anything fancy like a frittata at 7 years old, but, now, if I was hosting a Mother’s Day brunch, I would definitely make a frittata like today’s, my Carrot Noodle and Leek Frittata!

One of my favorite ways to use spiralized veggies is in a frittata – it’s an easy way to pack in the veggies first thing in the morning and also makes “breakfast for dinner” much more satisfying.

If you can’t find carrots big enough to spiralize, you can swap in other veggies here – butternut squash, zucchini, sweet potato, and parsnip would work really well, too!

SO, if you’re looking for something to make your mama for Mother’s Day, try a spiralized frittata!

And this is our last blog post before the new cookbook comes out next week! I cannot BELIEVE it’s already here. May 1st is the release date, and I have SO many exciting things planned for that week, including giveaways, recipe videos, Facebook and Instagram lives, so make sure you’re following along on Instagram and Facebook so you don’t miss a thing!

This looks delicious! Since carrots large enough to spiralize are tough to find, a couple of times I've bought frozen spiralized carrots that they have at Trader Joe's! It's amazing how far spiralizing has come, isn't it?

Hi Stephanie! Great idea, it is definitely amazing!
I'm really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
