Red pepper and spinach frittata is a delicious and easy quick healthy meal. Serve this vegetarian dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The choice is yours!
Folks, I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t love a good frittata. Do you?
I love how easy they are to make and how you can add different ingredients and completely change the flavour.
You could easily do that with this red pepper and spinach frittata and make it your own.
Just by changing the type of cheese you use (I’ve suggested mozzarella or cheddar in the recipe below) or using any leftover vegetables you’ve got a hearty and filling low carb recipe!
It’s perfect for Meatless Monday, too.
Now I love to cook but sometimes even I am too tired and uninspired and don’t feeling like cooking at all.
So this easy red pepper and spinach frittata take the stress out of making a meal and leaves both Lady Lynne and myself feeling content, happy and well fed.
I’ve already said that this frittata makes a great breakfast but it’s also perfect for dinner too.
If I’m serving it for dinner I like to add a salad. A simple green salad of lettuce, spinach, or rocket with chopped spring onions and some slices of cucumber is perfect.
Plus frittatas are just perfect for picnics.
Indeed if we get a summer here it is my full intention to enjoy delicious slices of cold frittata for lunch!
I mean it’s supposed to be warmer here now.
You wouldn’t have thought so when we came home from The Cumbria Way a couple of weeks ago. We just missed the snowfall by one day! It was so cold coming back to Glasgow I put the heating on as soon I as got in!
