Saucy Mediterranean Frittata: A Savory Dish For Any Meal Of The Day | Growing Up Herbal | Enjoy this deliciously healthy egg-based recipe any time of the day. It's quick and easy to make. Perfect for busy mamas!

I love eggs. Especially the cage-free variety that come straight from the farm. Plus, they’re so healthy for you!

Eggs are a good source of protein and healthy fats, they contain a good variety of vitamins and minerals, they contain antioxidants, and most people can tolerate them (unless of course, you’re allergic to the whites).

Today, I’m gonna share one of my favorite egg recipes with you – Saucy Mediterranean Frittata. This delicious recipe doesn’t taste eggy, my kids love it, and it can be eaten for any meal… breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Not only that, but it takes right around 30-minutes to make from start to finish, and it can be used as a side dish or a complete meal. It’s so versatile!

Ingredients for Medium Hold Pomade
  1. 2 tablespoons beeswax
  2. 3 tablespoons kokum butter
  3. 2 tablespoons jojoba oil
  4. 1 tablespoon argan oil
  5. 40 drops essential oil blend of choice
Ingredients for Firm Hold Pomade
  1. 3 tablespoons beeswax
  2. 2 tablespoons kokum butter
  3. 2 tablespoons jojoba oil
  4. 1 tablespoon argan oil
  5. 40 drops essential oil blend of choice
Instructions
  1. Melt beeswax, kokum butter, and oils together in a double boiler over low heat until fully melted. Remove from heat and stir well. Add in essential oils.
  2. As the mixture cools, use an immersion blender or small whisk to blend the mixture further. This will create a lighter, fluffier combination. Repeat this process as the mix cools.
  3. Spoon the mixture into a tin or glass jar of your choice. Allow to cool completely. Label and date.
To Use
  1. Scoop a pea-size amount into your hands and rub together to melt. Using your fingers, rub the pomade through the hair and style as desired.
Notes
  1. In order for this pomade to turn out well, it’s important to use kokum butter and jojoba oil. These are harder and wax-like which yields a better (less sticky) product that other butters and oils will.
  2. Use age-appropriate essential oils of your choice.
