Spinach & Zucchini Frittata

There’s something about frittatas that are just perfect. A frittata is a one of a kind dish, that can serve as both a protein filled main, or an addition to a meal. Great during breakfast, lunch or dinner; wonderful served immediately or straight from the fridge in the middle of the night. Scrumptious seasonal vegetables, or any leftover will spruce up what would have been just ordinary eggs. Frittatas are also great for a crowd, and can be made ahead.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
