This ratatouille frittata is something special. It's Whole30 compliant, gluten-free, and dairy-free. Perfect for a family breakfast or brunch gathering! Incredibly flavorful and healthy at the same time.
Our family has decided to do the Whole30 diet. So you know what that means... Time to get creative with the food! Over the years, I've found that the only times I'm successful with dieting is when I make a concerted effort to make delicious food. So here's one of my weekend creations - a delicious ratatouille frittata!
I Cannot Lie to You...
This recipe requires a good amount of work. Not difficult work. But it just takes some time to make this dish look stunning. But, sometimes it's worth it for that "Wow!" factor - which this delivers, both with appearance and flavor! I highly recommend getting a high-quality v-blade mandoline slicer. We've owned several over the years, but the one pictured above has proven to be worth the investment.
You'll Notice a Difference
Traditional ratatouille contains eggplant. I don't really like eggplant. Well, unless it's breaded, fried, and covered with cheese and sauce. So, for this dish, I decided to switch it out for potatoes. It worked. I mean, it really worked!

What is the Whole30 diet??
Basically, it's whole foods for 30 days. No wheat, no dairy, no legumes, no alcohol - in a nutshell. All the fun stuff 🙁
I'm on my 4th W30, day 20. My hubby and I have decided every Jan, April and October we will Whole30 it. Works for us. Food is DELICIOUS. Miss certain things, but you can do anything for 30 days.
Oh my goodness, thanks for sharing! This my next meal.
This is was very nice but I did something wrong. I whisked 2 tsp of finely ground Himalayan salt into the eggs, but the salt didn’t dissolve. After I poured the eggs the salt settled on the bottom of the pan and every bite of the bottom of the frittata was disgustingly salty. But the top 95% was delicious! Anyway- to others to who make this- beware. Thanks for the recipe!
Beautiful dish, not all that hard to assemble, I found that I wanted to add some additional seasoning however.
We added an approved marinara sauce! It’s delicious!!!
So easy and delicious!! I added some cheddar cheese which totally worked.
