What's great about it

I often make this super simple Frittata recipe from my Purely Delicious Cookbook for a quick mid-week dinner or lazy weekend brunch. This is a clean and healthy meal that will make you feel fantastic after eating it! Egg contains all the essential amino acids your body needs to nourish muscle and provide optimum health. They have no fat or cholesterol and are very low in calories so you can enjoy them freely as part of your healthy diet. The green veggies are loaded with easily digestible nutrients  to protect against disease and illness and the aim is to try and incorporate a variety into your diet.

300 g (10 1/5 oz)  leek, sliced

100 g (3 1/2 oz) spinach, washed and chopped

pinch of sea salt and white pepper

2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

5 free range eggs

Notes and Inspiration

Great for leftovers the next day.

Enjoy with a green salad or extra steamed vegetables topped with parsley, lemon and mint salsa verde.   

This dish also marries beautifully with my Smashed Tomato Sauce.
