Wannabe Kale Frittata with Beef and Cherry Tomatoes

Home / Recipes / Wannabe Kale Frittata with Beef and Cherry Tomatoes

This is a wannabe frittata because I didn’t add cheese nor did I bake this dish and it could be called an omelette except that there’s more kale than egg. I found this dish incredibly tasty and stir frying the kale will eliminate any bitterness that is inherent in the veg.

This recipe serves 1.

1 clove of garlic, minced
3 kale leaves, chopped
5 cherry tomatoes, halved
100g sliced beef (meant for stir frying or shabu shabu)
2 eggs
1 tbsp milk
salt & pepper to taste


  1. Heat up the oil and fry the garlic until golden brown
  2. Add in the beef and kale, stir frying until the beef is half cooked
  3. Add in the tomatoes and stir; organise the veg and meat mix into a pancake-like circle in your frying pan
  4. Crack the eggs into a bowl and mix, adding in the milk as well as salt and pepper
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the middle of the veg ‘pancake’. The egg mixture should start to ooze to the sides
  6. Let the egg cook a little before flipping the pancake onto its other side to cook for a further minute (you can do the flipping in sections)
  7. Once the beef is thoroughly cooked, serve the wannabe frittata

You can make it a little more of a legit frittata by adding grated Parmesan or Gruyere cheese into the egg mixture before pouring it into the pan. It’s really quite a satisfying meal which you can wash down with a can of cider or beer. Yum!
