Spinach Frittata


Spinach Frittata || Real Simple
Mango, Orange, Kiwi & Strawberry Fruit Salad

NOTE: Trying to keep it light since we had one hour between soccer and tae kwon do tonight. This was another hit with the kids! My 7 year old ate three pieces of Frittata.

4 cup fresh spinach
8 egg whites
4 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
12 tablespoons part-skim ricotta


Heat oven to 350° F.

Pour about 1/2 inch of water into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Fit a steamer basket in pan. Place the spinach in the steamer, cover, and steam until the spinach is wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg whites, yolk, and pepper. Stir in the steamed spinach. Pour the mixture into a 6-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet.

Top with spoonfuls of the ricotta and bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set. Using a rubber spatula, slide the frittata onto a plate; sprinkle with more pepper (if desired).
