Vegetable Egg Strata



  • 1 dozen local eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon fresh basil
  • 6 slices of Ezekiel bread, whole grain 4:9
  • 1 diced avocado (for serving)
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese (for serving)

Pico de gallo (for serving):

  • 3/4 cup diced tomato
  • 1/3 cup red onion
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, almond milk, pepper, salt, garlic powder, and basil.
  3. Stir in tomatoes, spinach, and onions.
  4. Cut a piece of Ezekiel bread in half, then chop into pieces and divide evenly to the bottom of the Strata holder. (Each Strata gets 1/2 slice of bread.)
  5. Divide the mixture evenly between 12 strata holders and bake for 10 minutes or until the egg is fully cooked.
  6. Let the strata cool for 5-10 minutes, then top with avocado, feta and pico de gallo.

Nutrition Tip

Spinach is a native plant of Persia (Iran) but it was Popeye who made this nutrient-dense vegetable popular in the U.S. in the 1930s. Spinach is often coined a superfood because it is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants, such as iron, B vitamins, dietary fiber, calcium, magnesium, as well as vitamins A, C, K, and E. Spinach is very versatile and can be eaten cooked or raw. Even though it is great in salads all on its own, try adding spinach to pasta, soups, smoothies, and dips.
