The Food Edition: Mini Vegetarian Frittata

Lost for lunch ideas? These miniature vegetable frittata’s are great for throwing onto a salad when you simply just can’t be bothered. With the not so typical English heatwave we have recently been experiencing i couldn’t think of anything worse than slaving away in the kitchen. When summer hits i just want fresh, quick and simple food but it’s still got to be tasty. Inspired by the BBC Good Food website these little chunks of deliciousness are on the easy scale when it comes to cooking, in fact i would say more on the baking side of things… think little savoury muffins!

What you will need:

  1. Butter for greasing
  2. 85g spinach
  3. 3 large eggs
  4. 6 tbsp of cottage cheese
  5. 3 spring onions
  6. fresh dill
  7. ground nutmeg

This is your typical ‘throw it all in’ recipe, so it doesn’t require much skill but rewards you with yummy results. Start by greasing baking parchment or muffin cases (grease on the outside to help them stick to the tin) throw the spinach in a colander and poor over hot water and leave to cool, in the meantime beat three eggs and season well. Once the spinach is cool squeeze all the excess water out and mix in with the eggs, chop up all the other herb ingredients and throw in along with chopped spring onion and the cheese, spoon into the cases and bake in the oven for about 18-20 minutes at 180 C.

Once cooked through put aside to cool and there you have it, lovely little lunch bites! These will last a couple of days in a container so perfect for lunch at the office desk or accompany with sweet potato fries for dinner, they would even make a great ‘bring a dish’ to a friends BBQ… don’t forget the Pimms too!

How lovely of you to drop by!
