“FRET NOT” FRITTATA!

Karina’s Mini Sweet Potato Frittata Cupcakes!

IMG_7552.JPG

Remember my last recipe called ‘Silly “Dill”y,’ where I used roasted sweet potato to make a healthy and delicious Low GI sweet potato salad? Well, there were some leftovers from the salad, so I used all the leftovers as prime ingredients for this recipe. If using the leftovers in this manner, this is an ultimate time-saver, money-saver and food-saver recipe, where all leftovers are used, so there is no waste! This recipe is also environmentally friendly, due to re-using of ingredients to eliminate waste.

Ingredients:

  • 300g leftover roasted sweet potato salad (refer to previous recipe)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup thickened light cream
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 birds eye chilli, chopped finely

Method:

Preheat oven to 200° C.

Using a large bowl, beat your eggs and cream together, until well combined. Once well combined, mix all other ingredients together with your beaten egg, until evenly incorporated.

Using non-stick 12 mini-cupcake moulds, pour this mixture into each mould, then place in the oven for 10 minutes. Once 10 minutes are over, turn the oven to ‘off.’

Compiling the Beauty:

Take the Mini Frittata Cupcakes out of the oven, then place two cupcakes on each plate.

Serves 6 as an appetiser.

Enjoy!

That looks ‘Grate!’

Karina’s Environmental Cooking Tip!

IMG_6664

When you next consider buying kitchen gadgets, give vintage gear a go! Not only do they look ‘grate,’ they also help the environment remain beautiful, by reducing the consumer demand for new utensils. This in turn: reduces consumption, reuses what’s already there, is usually cheaper, makes your kitchen look ‘grate’ because of your vintage ‘grater’ and is probably built to last!

Now, what’s not to feel ‘grate’ about this!

Have fun in the kitchen!

Up to the Waist with Waste!

Karina’s Environmental Cooking Tip!

IMG_7217

There are many things you can do, in order to reduce waste in your kitchen. If you buy goods which have recyclable packaging, then you are one step closer in significantly reducing waste. Always use the well-known saying: ‘Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.’ Reuse plastic containers and water bottles, until they cannot be used any more. Reduce the amount of waste you generate, both in packaging and in food scraps. Recycle anything you can recycle. Use cloth napkins, instead of always relying on paper ones. This will save a tonne of waste and will significantly help the environment.

There are many other Environmental Tips I can offer. I will cover another one next time.

Have fun!

Enjoy!
