Crash Test Paleo: Napa Cabbage Fritatta

Last sunday I participated in a fun and inspirational food styling and food photograph workshop by the very talented food photographer Simone van den Berg from Simone’s Kitchen and food stylist Alex from Serve With Cream. They were so kind to serve a paleo style lunch, and we photographed (and ate) a very delicious fritatta with napa cabbage. Since it tasted so good, and I want to to seize every opportunity that I can to practice my food photography, I decided to look up the recipe and make again at home.


The original recipe is from a Dutch (paleo) nutrition consultant called Oerkracht Voedingsadvies, and you can find it here. Since it’s in Dutch I have the English recipe included in this post as well.


In stead of cooking the fritatta in a pan, I poured the mixture in a spring cake tin lined with parchment paper and baked it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes on 200C.

Hope you like it as much as I did!
