January always brings out our best intentions. Recently I’ve been trying to get more protein and veggies in my diet, and I thought what better way to achieve both than with a spinach frittata! I love the idea of making personalized frittata’s because you can put whatever you want in them, but also it’s a great way to portion control!
New year new you! Today I’m sharing a super fun recipe and also announcing a really exciting partnership for 2019.
I’m so excited to announce that I’m going to be working with the Egg Farmers of Canada throughout the year as one of their #EggAdvocates. For a busy gal on the go like myself I really do rely on eggs quite a bit to ensure I’m getting all the nutrients I need for the day. Eggs are affordable, quick and versatile; I know when I have them on hand I can always whip up something at a moments notice and I never get bored! I mean THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS TO EAT EGGS. It’s amazing really.
And look at all these health benefits! It’s amazing how much nutrients you can pack into one meal when you opt for eggs whether you want to ensure you’re getting enough iron, or you want to keep you energy up with B12 there are so many reasons to opt for eggs!
Over the course of the year I’m going to be working with the Egg Farmers of Canada to share all kinds of healthy recipes for you guys! Today we’re starting with a spinach frittata for one, and this is one of my go-to recipes when I’m cooking for myself or a smaller number of people.
I use french onion soup bowls because it’s the perfect one person serving, and also you can make a few different kinds to suit everyone’s taste. Because it’s the new year I’ve been REALLY trying to up my veggies in my diet, and spinach is such a super food I basically have been putting it in everything. And eggs are such a great vehicle for sneaking in more veggies! I was so excited I decided to make a little video for you.
SPINACH FRITTATA FOR ONE
Cooking spray (I used coconut oil).
2 teaspoons Milk ( I used unsweetened cashew, it was what I had on hand)
2 Tablespoons Cheese (You can use whatever kind you like)
Salt and Pepper to taste
½ cup Spinach (if using frozen, double if using fresh).
Preheat oven to 450.
While oven is heating, spray your dish with cooking spray then add eggs (whisk). Add cheese, milk, salt and pepper, and spinach to combine.
*You could heat your spinach in a pan with oil prior to adding to the dish, but I didn’t bother. Using frozen spinach does make the cooking time take a bit longer, but I like the minimal clean up.
Bake until frittata has fluffed up and is nice and golden, about 20-25 minutes.
Hope you enjoyed today’s post! I can’t wait to share more healthy recipes with you! For more information and recipes visit Eggs.ca
