Zucchini Hash Browns
(Detox, FS, RR, SS, CC, P1, P2)
Serves 2

2 eggs
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 dash pepper
2 tsp olive oil
1 cup shredded zucchini

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Using your hands to form 2 large patties. Heat oil or use oil spray in a skillet over medium heat, put the hash brown patties on the skillet and let it brown before you flip on the other side.


Asparagus Frittata
(RR, SS, CC)
Serves 4

2 cups asparagus
1 leek
2 cups baby spinach
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/8 tsp black pepper
6 large eggs
1 TBSP avocado oil

Preheat broiler and set rack 6 inches from the flame. Crack eggs into a large bowl; add pepper and salt to flavor. Lightly scramble and set aside. In a large oven-safe pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the leek and sauté for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Add the asparagus, sauté for 3 minutes or until almost fully cooked. Add spinach and season with salt and pepper. When the spinach is almost fully wilted, spread the mixture across the bottom of the pan and pour eggs over top. Turn pan so eggs fully cover vegetables. When the edges of the eggs start to separate from the edges of the pan, turn off heat. Place pan under the broiler until the frittata is lightly golden and the eggs are fully set, about 5 minutes. Immediately turn the frittata onto a serving plate and garnish with parsley, if desired. Cut into slices and serve.
