Veggie Frittata

This might be the best breakfast I have ever made!! And surprisingly enough, this is the first time I have ever made a frittata.

My new cast iron has changed my life and given me so much more motivation to try new recipes.

Pair this breakfast with a few corn tortillas or some whole wheat toast and you have yourself a wholesome meal. The fresh herbs, creamy avocado, charred kale, and the kick from the jalapeno will make you want seconds. My family is coming to visit this weekend and I think this Veggie Frittata would be perfect!
