Healthy One-Pot Recipe: Spinach, Red Pepper & Potato Frittata
A lot of people tend to forget about eggs when they’re thinking of cooking something other than breakfast, but we love them at any time of day; a frittata is a great choice in the morning, but is equally filling and tasty for lunch or dinner. Depending on your diet and tastes, you could use egg whites and omit the potatoes, or you could add goat cheese or feta to give it a little more creaminess and extra flavor, it’s up to you! This one-skillet meal is healthy and delicious, and the super speedy cleanup is just one of its many perks!
