This sweet potato frittata with kale and feta is perfect for make-ahead breakfasts or as a light meal any time of the day. It keeps well for 4-5 days in the fridge and can be frozen for later consumption, too.
I used goat’s feta, which pairs great with the sweetness of sweet potato. Traditional feta made from sheep and goat’s milk would work great, too, as would regular cow’s milk feta.
This recipe is gluten-free and vegetarian. It has a decent amount of protein (22.9g per serve) and the 28.4g of carbs from the sweet potato are lower GI and come packed with micronutrients (see potatoes vs sweet potatoes for more details).
