Those of you who know me well, know that as well as Mummy-ing, Make-upping and Wife-ing I LOVE to bake. Not just any old baking I love substitution baking, as in; how vegan/paleo/vegetarian/wholesome/cost friendly can I make this meal? At the G20’s Global Café a few days ago it was stated that Australians make up part of the world that wastes and throws out 40% of their food. FORTY PERCENT! WHAT!?
So today I decided to bake something savoury that not only would be daycare friendly (no nuts and no seafood) but would also use up what we already had in the cupboard.
2 cups grated carrot
1 1/2 cups grated, drained Potato
1/2 cup cooked Brown Rice
1 TSP garlic
1/2 cup organic Buckwheat or Rye flour
3 TSP Linseeds (where else are you going to sneak these into?)
2 TSP baking powder
1/2-1 TSP Salt
2 Free range eggs
1 tin Kidney beans (drained and pureed -> need some proteins)
1/2 cup Cheese (N.B. This is a non Paleo ingredient but still vegetarian and SO YUM.)
1.Drain, rinse and Puree the Kidney beans. If you don’t have a Pureeing stick get down to Woolworths/Coles/Kitchen store, spend $15 and get yourself one of the best purchases you will ever make.
– You also don’t need a pic of the pureed Kidney Beans, they don’t look so great 😉 –
2. Pour the pureed kidney beans and the rest of the ingredients into a mixing bowl, crack the eggs into the bowl and mix! You can also add some Sweet chilli sauce into the mix if you like.
3. To bake, I used silicone cupcake moulds and grated cheese over the top. This mix made about 15 frittata’s.
4. Bake in a moderate oven (around 150-180 Degrees) for about 30 mins-you want them to spring back up when touched.
These babies will use that extra stuff sitting in your cupboard, sneak vegetables into your kids (and husbands should they need it), put food on the table and cost you next to nothing! WIN WIN WIN
Serve with your favourite sauce -the kidney bean puree can sometimes dry your mix a little (our sauce pick is Sweet Chilli for the adults and tomato sauce for the kids).
