Veggie Fritatta: Christmas Edition

Day eight of twelve

This year Sean and I are hosting my family on Christmas day and made an unconventional (for us) decision to have them over earlier in the day for brunch. This serves two purposes:

1. We see my family first then have time in the evening to spend with his.
2. We don't stress about dinner prep and what is or isn't vegetarian.

It was a last minute decision but one that I'm excited about. Fruits, breads, eggs, tea, juice...mmmm. Nothing beats a hearty morning spread.

I have to admit that my breakfast most mornings is an Arbonne protein shake and a piece of fruit (mmm!). But, when I do cook, one of my favorite recipes has become a simple one: the fritatta. And it just so happens that with the veggies I most often have on hand, it looks a little Christmas-y by default: red and green everywhere!



This is super easy, and like most of my recipes, super customizable. Use this to get inspired and make yours with whatever suits your taste!


Veggie Fritatta


You Will Need:

12 eggs
2 bell peppers, 1 red, 1 green, chopped
1 zucchini, chopped
1 cup chopped broccoli
1-2 roma tomatoes, seeded, juiced, and chopped

Cool, cut into squares, and enjoy!

  1. We recently started doing a Christmas Eve brunch with my aunt and uncle and it is so nice! That way we can spend time with the extended family and then have a chance to spend Christmas with just us.

  3. My family is having a Christmas brunch this year, which sounds really tasty, because I prefer breakfast food. But I won't be there, oh well!
