Frugal Frittata

For dinner tonight I wanted to make something light, healthy and use up the withering vegetables in my fridge and cupboard. At the start of the week I realised I had somehow managed to accumulate 3 cartons of eggs so, a frittata it was.
Inspired by the Healthy Food Guide recipe for Potato and Spinach Tortilla I put together the following dish.

Frugal Frittata Recipe

(serves 2)

Ingredients

  • ~2c vegetable, chopped into cubes (I used kumara, pumpkin and potato but I’m sure you could also use parsnip, carrot, courgette or broccoli)
  • 4 eggs
  •  1 TBSP cottage cheese
  • 2c baby spinach leaves
  • 1/4t nutmeg
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Roast or fry vegetables until tender in a splash of olive oil until tender
  2. Whisk remain ingredients together and stir through cooked vegetables
  3. Bake until golden, puffed up and firm to the touch (about 20 minutes in my oven)

I served this easy meal with some crisp cos leaves, some cottage cheese and a teaspoon of chutney. Not the most attractive looking dish but it tasted good.
