Ricotta, Tomato and Spinach Frittata : Low Carb : Keto



Many friends seem to like a Frittata at the weekend, but they really can be enjoyed any day of the week. They are so versatile with many different recipes and variety options.

I think this makes a great mid-week meal, it's quick, easy and healthy, and just 7g carbs per serving … Read on and see what you think! 

Ingredients
Serves Four
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 large onion, finely sliced
300g cherry tomatoes
100g spinach leaves
small handful basil leaves
100g ricotta (also works well with Feta)

6 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper to season 
salad, to serve

Method
1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the onion for 5-6 mins until softened and lightly golden. Add the tomatoes and toss for 1 min to soften.
2. Remove from the heat, add the spinach leaves and basil, and toss together to wilt a little. Transfer all the ingredients to a greased 30cm x 20cm rectangular baking tin. Take small scoops of the ricotta and dot over the vegetables.

3. Season the eggs and beat well, then pour over the vegetables and cheese. Cook in the oven for 20-25 mins until pale golden and set.
4. Serve with salad.

That looks delicious. I've never made a frittata, and this recipe doesn't look intimidating at all. I think I'll pick up feta cheese next time I'm at the grocery :)

Amazing italian dish, somewhere between a quiche and an omelet, based on eggs but enriched with many fine ingredients such as vegetables and cheeses!
The picture of it makes my mouth water.

Jenn Jilks said...

I used to love making this kind of thing. I'd have to eat it all myself, though!

I thought of you as I made a boxed Kraft Dinner.... boxed cheese and pasta. Sigh. It's been a trial around here.

When I make frittatas, I bake them in muffin tins. Works well, easy to store in the refrigerator, easy to heat up or just eat cold.

Martha said...
