Persian Kale and Potato Frittata (Kookoo Sabzi)

I was inspired to create this Kale and Potato Frittata by a traditional Persian recipe called Kookoo Sabzi. We serve Kookoo during the Persian New Year, and at funerals... I'm not really sure why that is... Anyways, it's a really nutrient rich dish that's super versatile to enjoy for breakfast, a snack, pre/post workouts, lunch, or dinner! You can eat it on the go - hot or cold, and it's quite easy to make.

You can easily make this a vegan recipe by substituting the egg whites with my tofu egg mixture. I'll post both versions below.


I mainly made this dish for Enrique, since he loves eggs for breakfast, and I'd love it if he'd pack some veggies in there somehow... So this was a perfect compromise. He loved it, phew!

My favorite apron, and view.

We packed some to go for our Sunday picnic by the Bay.
