sauteed tomato

Made a refined oil free walnut pesto a few days ago so I’ve been loving pesto pasta. I made this meal for my family the other night: pesto pasta with sauteed zucchini, cherry tomatoes, onions, garlic, and spinach with lemon on everything. They loved it 😋 These tastes are so refreshing for summer

Hey everyone! So this is going to be my first post in a series of student-friendly recipes I’ll be posting. This is kind of a mash-up of like 3 different veggie omelette recipes I saw, so this is by no means an original recipe. Hope you enjoy! 

Prep: 5 minutes

Cook: 10 minutes

Servings: 2

You will need: 

  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup cooked + chopped baby spinach (I use frozen spinach for convenience) 
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan 
  • 2 cherry tomatoes, diced (or ¼ cup canned tomatoes will work as well) 
  • ¼ cup white onion, diced 
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • Vegetable oil


  1. Heat some vegetable oil in a medium skillet on medium-high, saute onions and spinach until the onions are slightly golden brown. Take it out of the skillet and set aside.
  2. Beat eggs together in a bowl. 
  3. Add sauteed mixture, diced tomatoes, and parmesan to eggs. Season with garlic powder and salt/pepper to taste. Mix until well combined. 
  4. Pour the mixture in skillet over medium-high heat and cook until the edges are brown 
  5. Flip and cook for 2-3 minutes 


  • Add as many vegetables as you like! Green bell pepper and/or mushrooms will work well in this recipe 
  • If you would like some spice, this is amazing with some Sriracha

That’s all I have! Feel free to send me an ask if you have any questions/comments/concerns. I’d love to hear from you! :)

“We’re All Mad Here”

If you’re living in the Western Hemisphere like me, then you are reaching the end of long summer nights, the heat of a blazing sun, and the freedom of a full day ahead. This month is the perfect time to take advantage of the weather and bring together your friends for a chance to dress up and enjoy each other’s company. When I say throw a garden party—- I literally am referring to a fairy tale version of Alice’s tea party. Make it a wonderland.

I have to admit- these were so good that by the end of the day I ate the whole thing haha! Hot or cold, these are just plain delicious. They’re really simple to make (you can really make most green veggies thisway!) and use ingredients I always have on hand so it’s a great in-a-pinch, go-to recipe!

Here’s a few ways to use them:

  • my favorite- as is straight out of the pan haha!
  • layered on sandwiches (gluten free bread optional) with hummus & baby spinach
  • tossed in a big salad with light vinaigrette & blue cheese
  • served warm over brown rice or quinoa (especially with baked or grilled salmon)
  • warm on a wrap with fresh mozzarella (optional grilled chicken/ tofu/ tempeh), spinach & fresh tomatoes
  • sauteed with quinoa & parmesan

Muffin Pan Mini-Frittatas

This recipe is highly customizable to your tastes, quick, and can make several breakfasts at once. Good for any diet that allows eggs. Also good for leftovers!


-cooking oil
-spices of your choice
-add-ins: any combination of veggies, meat, cheese, sauces, etc. this is where you get creative. I have a few suggestions below

You will need:

-muffin pan(s)
-a couple of larger bowls
-whisk or fork
-whatever you need to prep cook the add-ins you choose


-Choose and cook your add-ins if necessary. The total amount of your add ins should fill about ¼ of your muffin cups. (See below for suggestions) Mix your add-ins together into one of the bowls.
-Preheat your oven to 350
-Break eggs in the other bowl. The number will depend on how many you want to cook and how many muffin cups you have. Each egg will make roughly 1.5 to 2 frittatas. I like to make a bunch at once.
-Add milk to the bowl with your eggs. The ratio should be about 1/ cup for 6 eggs. Adjust according to how many eggs you have. 
-Whisk your eggs and milk thoroughly. Add dry spices to the eggs. I recommend at least adding some salt.
-Cover the bottom and sides of each muffin cup with cooking oil.
-Fill each muffin cup with your egg mixture and add-ins. Each muffin cup should be about ½ to 2/3 full.
-Bake for 10-20 minutes, depending on how hard you like your eggs cooked. Under-cooked frittatas will stick to the pan, though. There should be no runny egg mixture if you stick a toothpick or fork in. The outside edges should be at least slightly browned.
-Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Keep in mind they will cook a little bit more when you first take them out.
-Enjoy! If you are having trouble getting them out of the pan, stick a fork between the frittata and the pan and run it all the way around to separate it from the sides.
-You can put these in the fridge and reheat in the microwave.


You can pretty much go crazy here, but here are a few add-in combinations I have tried that were yummy:

-sauteed spinach, sliced tomatoes, pesto sauce
-diced ham, cheddar, hash browns
-bacon, spinach, swiss cheese
-onions, potatoes, colby jack 

You can also add stuff on top after you take them out of the oven, like sriracha, salsa, etc. For extra cheesy-ness, sprinkle shredded cheese on top of the frittatas immediately after you take them out of the oven. The cheese will melt as they cool.
