Easy Whole 30® Frittata

Here’s a Whole 30® frittata that cooks up in just 30 minutes. Every bite features crisp pancetta, aromatic leeks, and herbs like parsley and cilantro.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
4 ounces pancetta, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 medium leek, white and pale-green parts only, finely chopped
10 large eggs
2 scoops Garden of Life Raw Organic Green Superfood Powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground turmeric
2 cups packed cilantro, finely chopped
2 cups packed parsley, finely chopped
Blistered tomatoes and grilled bread, for serving (optional)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Add 1 tablespoon oil to an oven-proof, 10-inch skillet. Sauté pancetta until crisp, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and lay on a paper towel; don’t wipe out the pan. Add onion and leek, sauté until translucent, about 7 to 9 minutes; scrape into a small bowl.

In a blender, add eggs, superfood powder, salt, baking powder, pepper, cumin, and turmeric; blend until smooth. Add remaining oil to pan and generously coat all sides to prevent sticking. Pour eggs into pan, then return pancetta and onion mixture, sprinkling all over the eggs.

Cook for 2 minutes, until the eggs at the edges of the pan begin to set. Slide into the oven and bake until eggs are set and slightly wiggly in the center, about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool slightly, then slide or flip onto a platter. Serve with blistered tomatoes and grilled bread, if desired.


Sous Vide Egg Bites

Egg bites make the perfect grab-and-go breakfast or pre-workout snack. This recipe has MCT oil to aid energy, and cooks up to the perfect texture right in your Instant Pot.

Yield: 7 servings
Active time: 10 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

10 eggs
2 tablespoons Thrive Market Organic MCT Oil
½ cup Thrive Market Organic Almond Beverage
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ cup Gouda cheese, shredded
7 slices cooked bacon, finely chopped

Instructions

Add eggs, MCT oil, almond milk, and salt to a blender; blend until smooth. Distribute Gouda and bacon evenly into the compartments of the silicone mold and cover with egg mixture; secure foil over the top.

Add 1 cup water to the inner pot of an Instant Pot, then place the trivet inside the pot. Place filled silicone mold on top of the trivet. Lock the lid in place and seal the pressure valve. Press the “Steam” button and set the timer to 8 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally for 8 minutes, then release any remaining steam before unlocking the lid. Remove the silicone mold and let stand for 2 minutes before serving.


Whole 30® Hollandaise Sauce

Hollandaise is known for being a somewhat fussy sauce that’s prone to curdling or broken emulsions, but this blender recipe works every time.

Yield: 1 ¼ cups
Active Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

¼ cup ghee
3 fresh rosemary sprigs
1 cup Sir Kensington’s Classic Mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Sir Kensington’s Spicy Brown Mustard
Juice of half a lemon
⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon sea salt
Water, as needed

Instructions

Add ghee and rosemary to a small saucepan and warm on medium heat. As the ghee melts, press rosemary into the ghee using the back of a spoon to help release its oils. Simmer until melted, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let rosemary steep for another 5 minutes. Discard rosemary.

In a bowl, add the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, cayenne, and salt. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle the rosemary-infused ghee into the mayonnaise mixture, whisking to incorporate. If sauce is too thick for pouring, add water (2 tablespoons at a time) until loosened. If not using immediately, store in refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Pour sauce into a 10-inch skillet and simmer over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Crack eggs over the top; cover. Continue simmering for 3 to 5 minutes more, until egg whites are fully cooked and yolks are partially runny. Top with parsley and serve immediately.
