Healthy Greek Frittata
I'm currently redeeming one free week of yoga as a beginning at CorePower Yoga, which means that at least for the remainder of this week, I'll be annoyingly healthy. Oh, except for that prime rib I devoured last night at Crosby's Kitchen.
On a mission to atone for last night's medium-rare and horseradish-cream covered sins, I insisted on Sunday brunch in this morning, and made an extremely healthy version of JB's standard brunch order - a Greek omelette. Frankly, this could just as easily be an omelette but I've yet to make an omelette without it breaking/burning/running so I spared myself the stress, threw it in the oven and called it a very happy day.
Making a few of these would be a great option for entertaining. They're almost embarassingly easy and totally fit into my new, yoga-enhanced healthy lifestyle! (This week.) I've pasted in the nutritional stats below the recipe... kind of unbelievable, no?
What's up, aperture priority mode? Forgive the pointless pictures while I play with my camera. Slowly but steadily workin' towards 10,000!
Did you know there was such a thing as a tomato knife? I did not, and I have spent the past 28 years squishing tomato after tomato.
Breakfast feasting with AmyLu chicken sausage - the best.
Healthy Greek Frittata
- 4 whole eggs
- 5 egg whites
- Large handful of spinach
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped
- 6 green onions, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup fat free feta*
- 1 tsp oregano
- black pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Saute chopped tomatoes and green onions in a non-stick pan, coated with cooking spray. Add spinach and cover to wilt.
- Transfer cooked vegetables into a pie dish prepared with cooking spray and allow to cool.
- Whisk together eggs, egg whites, and oregano, then pour the egg mixture over cooled vegetables.
- Sprinkle feta on top, then add pepper to taste. You don't need salt, the feta is already salty!
- Bake for 30-35 minutes or until egg is completely set.
- Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Slice and serve!
*fat free feta is the least scary fat free cheese, and personally, I don't mind it. However, you could easily substitute in reduced fat or even full fat feta here and still have a very healthy dish!
