This is a quick and colourful dish, packed with healthy fats and protein from the eggs and slow-release carbohydrate and vitamins from the sweet potato – plus an antioxidant hit from all the baby tomatoes.

Sweet potato tomato fritata

This healthy breakfast dish ticks a lot of boxes for people on low-carb diets that need an easy protein boost. 

It is… 

  • Low in fat
  • Low in carbs
  • High in protein – and vegetarian 
  • High in antioxidants (yay for tomatoes)

The recipe is also naturally gluten free – the bulk is essentially just sweet potato and baked egg. 

While the base is vegetarian, it lends itself to any number of modifications that you might want to make, such as:

  • Throwing in some smoked salmon
  • Chopping in some cubed chorizo 
  • Adding chunks of sausage (this would need to be cooked separately and added in before baking the mix)
  • Mixing up the spices and herbs to make the recipe your own – e.g. chilli and fresh basil

As someone who throws ingredients together any-old-how, with absolutely no regard to presentation, trying to make impressive looking food photography for this blog has been a challenge. 

Although this isn’t the most photogenic of dishes – (good luck trying to cut it in a vaguely presentable way) – the vibrant colours of the fresh baby tomatoes and peppers really cheer it up.  

While we’re on the topic of presentable food, I prefer cooking this in individual dishes. I have a stack of small pie tins from previous supermarket ready-meals that are great to reuse for this kind of thing.
