I love Frittata’s because they are delicious, but also because of their versatility – they can be served hot or chilled and for lunch or dinner. My recipe packs in lots of veggies, making the Frittata filling but low in calories. You can ch0oose to mix and match veggies depending on what you feel like (other options are capsicum, regular tomatoes, pumpkin, mushroom & asparagus).
For a sweet taste and carbs to fill me up, I use sweet potato as the base of the Frittata but this can be substituted for baby potatoes if you prefer. The meal takes about an hour to prepare if you are a slow chopper (like me), but if have a knack for cutting greens it should only take about 30 minutes.
You will need:
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 2 medium sweet potatoes
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 4 spring onions
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1/3 cup feta
- 1 zucchini
- Pinch of salt
- 6 of cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 cup fresh basil
- Preheat the oven to 200˚C.
- Chop up the sweet potatoes and zucchini into cubes and fry in fry-pan with turmeric and olive oil, until golden brown and cooked through.
- Chop up the cherry tomatoes, spring onions, feta and basil. Also loosely chop the baby spinach.
- Whisk the eggs, milk and salt in a large bowl until smooth. Then stir through the basil.
- Put the sweet potatoes and the zucchini fry into the base of a cake tin. Cover with baby spinach, tomatoes and sprinkle with spring onion.
- Pour egg mixture over all other ingredients in cake tin, making sure to cover everything.
- Cut up feta into small blocks and place on top.
- Cook for 25 minutes, or until egg looks bouncy and cooked through (I check by inserting a skewer – make sure it doesn’t come out goopy).
Voila! Homemade and delicious.
