  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 cups (packed) chopped kale leaves
  • 2 cups cooked and cubed butternut squash
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup yogurt or dairy-free yogurt/coconut milk
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • salt and pepper


  • Heat the olive oil in a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and saute one minute.
  • Add the kale, reduce the heat to medium-low and stir for another 3-4 minutes, or until the kale has become soft and wilted.
  • While the kale is wilting, add the eggs and yogurt to a large mixing bowl and whisk until creamy. Season the egg mixture with salt and pepper.
  • Reduce the heat to low, add the cubed butternut squash to the pan and stir with the kale and onions.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and sprinkle the goat cheese on top. Cook for 8-10 minutes, or until the sides are just starting to set.
  • Transfer the frittata to the oven (on a middle shelf) and turn the top broiler on. Continue cooking for another 8-10 minutes, checking every few minutes to ensure the top isn't browning too much. If it is, you can lower the rack in your oven.
  • Remove the frittata from the oven, slice and serve.


  • If your goat cheese sinks through the egg mixture, let the eggs set for a couple of minutes first. Then, when you place the goat cheese on top it should stay visible, making for a prettier presentation.
