Zucchini and Sweet Potato Frittata: The Paleo Diet Recipe for Lunch

Eggs are one of the easiest Paleo foods to prepare, and this frittata is simple yet delicious. The basic concept is simple; just beat some eggs and pour them into a pan with your favorite vegetables, and then bake it in the oven until it smells too good to resist. Have this Zucchini and Sweet Potato Frittata as your Paleo diet recipe for lunch:


  • 2 tablespoons butter (ghee) or coconut oil
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut in slices
  • 2 zucchinis, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat a pan over a medium-low heat; add the oil and sweet potato slices and cook until soft, about 8 minutes. Add the zucchini and red bell pepper slices and cook for another 4 minutes.
  2. While it cooks, whisk the eggs in a bowl. Season the egg mixture with salt and pepper and add to the cooking veggies. Cook on low heat until just set, about 10 minutes.
  3. Finish the frittata until golden under a heated broiler. Cut the finished frittata into wedges and serve with fresh parsley.
