Easy Caprese Frittata

Frittatas are a breakfast staple in our house. If we are home on the weekends and not on our way to the ski hill I take the extra few minutes to whip up a frittata. We eat them so often that my two year old daughter calls a frittata ‘eggs-tata’.

This Italian version of a frittata has become our new family favourite. It is packed full of flavour and pairs perfectly with avocado toast!

Feel free to add a couple slices of salami or prosciutto to add a bit more savoury flavour and Italian flair to this recipe.


Easy Caprese Frittata

A flavourful frittata baked with peppers, kale and salsa.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: General
Servings: 4 servings


  • 10 eggs
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 leaves kale
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 3 large hot house tomatoes
  • 2 medium sized bocconcini sliced mozzarella also works as a substitute
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 avocado optional for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Heat a cast iron pan to medium heat and add olive oil. Dice onion and garlic and toss into pan, sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  • Slice the tomatoes and bocconcini and set aside. Place the tomato slices on a piece of paper towel to remove some of the water. This will aid in cooking the frittata.
  • Finely chop the kale (do not use the stems) and half the basil and add to the pan. Sauté greens for an additional 2 minutes while whisking eggs and water together in a bowl. The water can make the eggs a bit more fluffy.
  • Pour whisked eggs into the cast iron (or other oven safe pan). Add sliced tomatoes and sliced bocconcini in a pretty pattern on top plus salt and pepper to taste.
  • Transfer the entire frittata pan into the oven and bake for 15-17 minutes or until middle of frittata is set.
  • Remove frittata from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with chopped basil and optional avocado or add avocado toast on the side!

3 Strength Exercises For Happy + Healthy Hips

Our hips are the base of our core. Many of the muscles that support our torso originate in our hip girdle, so it’s paramount to have a strong, supportive base of control in our hips. My favourite tool for healthy hips are what I call ‘smarter strength’ exercises. These are moves to engage varying muscles of the hips in a functional way.
