Greek-Inspired Frittata

Greek-Inspired Frittata

Most of the time, I don’t cook from a recipe for dinners. While I love trying fun new recipes, most of the time I just don’t have the time or mental capacity to plan these out and prep everything. So many of my weeknight meals are simple and nutritious – and made up on the fly.

Fritattas are a fantastic one-pan meal when you don’t want to spend much time on dinner, and don’t really have anything specific planned. What I love most is that if you have eggs, you can whip up a delicious frittata with whatever else you may have in your cupboards/fridge. 

This one in particular I love as it packs in a ton of veggies and has amazing flavor. So, if you have eggs, milk, coconut milk or nut milk, you can make this! Start with onions as a base, and add your favorite veggies and cheese, if you tolerate it. Of course, sausage or bacon can make a great addition too for additional quality protein.

Equipment:

  • Cutting board
  • Chef’s knife
  • Oven-safe pan
  • Spatula
  • Medium mixing bowl

Ingredients:

  • 9 eggs
  • 1/2 full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 4 cups packed spinach (or 1 cup frozen), finely chopped
  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • 1/3 c. kalamata olives
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Crack eggs into a bowl and whisk until well-blended. Add coconut milk, sea salt and black pepper. Set aside.
  3. Heat olive oil in the pan on medium-high and add the onion, cooking until translucent, about 5-7 minutes. 
  4. Add spinach and, if using fresh, cook down until wilted. Make sure it’s evenly spread on the bottom of the pan.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and turn down the heat to medium. Don’t stir.
  6. Crumble goat cheese and evenly distribute kalamata olives over the top.
  7. When the bottom starts to set (lifts away easily with a spatula), transfer to the preheated oven.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the top is cooked through.
  9. To brown the cheese, turn on the broiler for a minute or two, but watch it closely!
