Spinach Frittata – only 3 ingredients & super simple πŸ’š

This spinach dish reminds me of my childhood. It is the best and easiest way to get your little ones to eat spinach. It will make them strong like Popeye! 

Spinach is an extremely healthy powerhouse of nutrition, coming from the same family as beets, chard and quinoa. It is a vegetable which is available all year round but at its best in the spring. Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C and folic acid as well as being a good source of manganese, magnesium, iron and vitamin B2. 

This recipe is extremely easy to make. It is best made with fresh spinach but can be made just as well with the frozen variety. Make it, let it cool and serve as a great vegetable accompaniment to any main meal. It goes really well with salmon or seabass baked in the oven.

Ingredients- (makes one large frittata)

– 1 large onion ( finely diced)

– 1 large bag of washed baby spinach

– 3 eggs 

– Sea salt & ground pepper to taste

Method-

– Cook the diced onions in a lightly oiled large non stick frying pan until caramelised.

– Add the spinach. Don’t worry if it looks like there is too much Spinach, as it cooks it will lose its water content and wilt down.

– Add the salt & pepper to the spinach and leave to cook on a medium heat until all the spinach is cooked.

– Add the eggs to the pan and mix into the spinach until it is all incorporated. As the egg cooks it will bind the spinach & onion mix together to for an omelette like frittata. Do not cover with a lid.

  

– Using a spatula pat down the top and sides to form a round giant pancake shape. Once all the egg has cooked through take off the heat and leave to cool. 

– Once cooled you can cut the frittata as you would a cake and serve in triangular slices.

Serve alongside fish dishes, or enjoy just as it is! I even love this for breakfast.

Yum yum πŸ’š xxxx
