Book Forty-Eight: Gordon Ramsay's Healthy Appetite

by Gordon Ramsay

          Sweet Potato Frittata with Tomato Salsa

I so wanted to rave about this dish! Not just because of my love for sweet potatoes, or this dish being healthy and uber easy, but beautiful!!!- we do feast with our eyes first!! However the flavor was just not there. Maybe kick it up a notch with some more fresh herbs, or add salt and pepper to the egg - definitely needs something.

I love his instuctions of handful of this, half of that, until I got to: add one shallot, minced. I don't know about you, but in my market the shallots range greatly in size. My one shallot produced about 2 tablespoons minced. Maybe I needed more to up the flavor.

Success meter: (1-3): 2

Not romas - but vine-ripened nonetheless!
Thanks Mr. T!!

Why a picture of oil in the pan you ask?
Because it's cool - this my inner artist coming out.
