Winter Vegetable Frittata

Eggs are an excellent source of the essential amino acid L-Tryptophan, which converts to seratonin in the brain. The calming effect of seratonin can often be felt within 30 minutes of consuming foods high in tryptophan, according to Dr. Daniel G. Amen, author of “Magnificent Mind at Any Age.” Use any combination of vegetables, rice or quinoa. This recipe is an ideal way to use leftover stir fry ingredients!

Fresh salsa (onion, tomato, lime, cilantro)
5 large leaves fresh basil, chopped
3 sprigs fresh tarragon, chopped
6-8 eggs depending on how large the dish you are cooking with
Sprinkle of aged white cheddar cheese
2 tbsp fresh grated ginger
4 cloves garlic
Bragg liquid seasoning
Suggested vegetables: onions, celery, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, bean sprouts, carrots, bok choy, leeks
Celtic sea salt and pepper

  1. Chop desired vegetables and lightly stir fry with olive oil, ginger, garlic, Bragg liquid seasoning and a tblsp of water (or use stir fry left overs).
  2. Line a deep dish pie plate with a thin layer of sauerkraut. Add vegetables overtop of the sauerkraut and sprinkle with fresh chopped basil and tarragon.
  3. Mix eggs with a small amount of Bragg liquid seasoning, some fresh salsa, sea salt and pepper.
  4. Add egg mixture to the pie plate. Sprinkle with cheese and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  5. After 30 minutes reduce the heat to 250 – 300 degrees and cook for another 20 minutes or until the center is firm. If the center is not cooking, cut into the dish crosswise a few times and place back in the oven.
