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?

cleaned the grill today, which inspired me to grill for dinner, so I kept it simple with grilled potatoes, broccoli and chicken sausage. 🥦🥔 I also made some BBQ tempeh for myself, which was nice and hearty and I am excited to make it more this summer 🌽👏🏼 basically, I steamed it for 10 minutes and then slathered it in barbecue sauce and threw it on the grill for 10-15 minutes. super easy and delish! 🙏🏼

what’s everyone having for dinner tonight?! 👇🏼 #whatsfordinner #vegandinnerideas #vegandinners

it's friyyyyyyaayyyy and that means cheese & cracker plates, right? 🍷 my Pistachio & Cranberry Vegan Cheese Ball 🌱 is perfect for any occasion (yes, friday is an occasion!), a throwback recipe from my Inspiralized & Beyond cookbook! if you have the book, flip to page 88 and make this - definitely no cheese coma and you'll be amazed how cheese-like it tastes (kind of like a spreadable ricotta with tons of herby goodness!) 👏🏼⁣

what's everyone's weekend plans? I'll be in NYC for the second part of the photoshoot for my collaborative cookbook with @feedinglittles! 👯‍♀️⁣
