Spinach and Red Pepper Frittata

 

This is a very simple, very healthy egg white fritatta dish that comes together in a curiously tasty way. I honestly didn’t have the highest of expectations of this dish in the taste department, considering that I composed it focusing on the nutritional components, and not with taste in mind, and was completely blown away by the tastiness! Enjoy as breakfast or dinner.

Here’s what you need…

  • 4 cups spinach

  • olive oil spray

  • ½ cup roasted red bell pepper (from jar), diced

  • ½ teaspoon Garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, minced

  • sea salt

  • 2 cups egg white

  • fresh ground pepper

 

Instructions:

  1. Place an inch of water in a large oven-proof skillet. Bring to a boil Add the spinach and wilt for 2 minutes. Remove the spinach and place on a paper towel. Squeeze out excess water. Chop the spinach.

  2. Wipe out the skillet and place over medium heat. Add the bell peppers, garlic, thyme and a sprinkle of sea salt. Sauté for 3 minutes. Remove from the pan.

  3. Place the egg whites in a large bowl. Whisk for a couple of minutes until lightly frothy and add in a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mix in the spinach and red pepper mixture.

  4. Preheat the broiler. Wipe out the skillet and return to medium heat. Apply a light spray of olive oil to the skillet. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet, turning the pan to evenly distribute. Shake the pan gently and use a spatula to lift the edges of the frittata, to let eggs run underneath.

  5. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 5 minutes, shaking the pan gently a few times. Once the eggs are almost fully set remove from heat.

  6. Place the frittata under the broiler for up to 3 minutes, watching closely to prevent burning. Remove from heat, cool for 5 minutes, then cut into pieces and serve. Enjoy!
