Meatless Monday Recipe Roundup: Elegant Egg Dishes

Since I moved to California, I’ve become a little spoiled with the open-air grocery stores and Farmer’s Markets that are in no short supply! Fruits, veggies, and herbs that were freshly picked the same day? Yes, please!!!

Shopping local for fresh ingredients reminds me so much of the European way of life, which is my opinion is “LIVE EVERY DAY!”

I particularly like simple French-inspired egg dishes such as quiches, that you can whip up in no time for friends and family. They can look very elegant, and are a perfectly balanced meal especially when paired with a salad of fresh greens!

Here are a few of my favorite meatless egg dishes in honor of Meatless Monday.

This Spicy Veggie Frittata is a Pinterest favorite, still scoring loads of views & repins every day!

Next is a Broccoli & Cheese Quiche. I make this one pretty often and always hope there are leftovers so I can steal some for breakfast too!

Next up is my Low-Fat Asparagus Quiche. I made this one a little lighter so you can try both varieties. You can add pretty much any veggies you like to these — hard to go wrong!

And finally, my new favorite, my Fingerling Potato and Kale Frittata! This one has delicious roasted potatoes & healthy greens. I think it looks so elegant, and it was so easy to make in this cast-iron skillet!
