Cooking Light ~ Fresh and Clean

Our monthly Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club is celebrating the New Year.
Giz of  The Equal Opportunity Kitchen picked our theme "Clean Eating"
That is a great way to start with those new year resolutions.

I looked for my Cooking Light Recipe ~ and decided to go with some fresh brown eggs and fresh spinach. I make frittatas almost every weekend . . . and this is my basic recipe. I will change the veggies and either omit or add a cheese ~ that's the way I work.

Spinach Onion Swiss Frittata
2 teaspoons canola oil
2 cups vertically sliced onion
4 cups baby spinach leaves
8  large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup shredded swiss cheese


1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Heat a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add onion; sauté 10 minutes or until tender. Add spinach; cook 2 minutes, stirring just until spinach wilts.
3. Combine eggs, salt, and pepper. Pour egg mixture over vegetables in pan; cook until edges begin to set, about 2 minutes. Gently lift edge of egg mixture, tilting pan to allow uncooked egg mixture to come in contact with pan. Cook 2 minutes or until egg mixture is almost set. Sprinkle with cheese.

4. Bake at 400° for 8 minutes or until center is set. Transfer frittata to a serving platter immediately; cut into 6 wedges.



Now . . . let's see what everyone else has brought for our clean living meal.

Jerry has been in Italy for the holidays, but still managed to bring a Lentil Herb Salad
Val is making a salad of Bulgur with Dried Cranberries
Giz was not able to cook... but can still enjoy our Virtual Club.

Y'all enjoy ~

This sounds great and gives me a good idea for dinner. Also, virtual calories are the best!
Happy New Year!

Oh Sandi, I adore frittatas! This sounds scrumptious! Thank you for your kind comment and I am so glad to be back with everyone! I needed this jump start of 'clean' for the New Year!

I wish you the happiest of New Years!

Yum! Frittatas are such an easy way of incorporating vegetables into light and tasty fare. They're such a versatile dish! I'd be putting in the cheese though! Haha!

Frittatas are so wonderful for the weekend - they allow you to use up whatever vegetables are laying about needing to be used. This one looks great. Now I am craving weekend food!
