CSA Week 1: Kale and Sunchoke Frittata

One great thing about our CSA is that they send a newsletter every week that includes recipes. Being new at this, I appreciate having something to help me start thinking about how to use everything (not that I ever stop thinking about food. To diverge, here’s a typical Megan/Sara conversation: M-”why do you have that look on your face?” S-”I was just thinking about how much I love you” M(ashamed)-”Oh, I was just thinking about potatoes”). This week’s newsletter featured a frittata recipe that I adapted to use even more vegetables.

Kale & Sunchoke Frittata

8 eggs
4 Tbsp parmesan cheese, divided
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 bunch chives chopped
1 tsp butter
1 bunch of ramp bulbs sliced
1 bunch red kale leaves chopped
3 sunchokes sliced into 1/2-1/4 inch slices

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Whisk together eggs, 3 Tbsp parmesan cheese, salt, and chives. Set aside.
3. Melt butter in a large cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Add ramps and saute until soft (about 3 minutes).
4. Add sunchokes and saute for 4 minutes more.
5. Add kale and saute until wilted (the kale I used was small and tender so this only took a couple minutes. Saute longer if you’re using a heartier kale).
6. Pour egg mixture over the vegetables and remove from stove.
7. Put the pan in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes, until middle is fully set.
8. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining Tbsp parmesan cheese, and more chives if desired.
