Frittatas for Fun
After a long run on Saturday mornings I always look forward to the recovery meal. What good is nine miles of calorie burning if you can't refuel afterward, right? Today, recovery came with a spinach, tomato, and goat cheese frittata.
Sound fancy? Not at all. Williams Sonoma makes it quite easy with their frittata pan - dual pans with linking handles make it easy to flip the pan halfway through the cook time. The frittata stays together making you look like an expert chef.
Sound fattening? Nope. The base is mostly vegetables and egg whites. Saute spinach, chopped tomatoes, minced garlic, and red onion in a little bit of grapeseed oil until tender. Then pour about a cup and a quarter of egg whites mixed with two whole eggs over the veggies in the pan. Dot the top with pieces of goat cheese, and you're well on your way to a healthy meal.
Sound time consuming? Not at all. Five minutes on each side. Even a ravenous runner can wait that long.
Sound delicious? You bet.
