Fertility Meal Plan
Spinach, Tomato and Goat’s Cheese Frittata
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
We recommend buying free range or organic eggs. Eggs are a great source of protein and together with salad or other vegetables make a quick, nutritious and cheap meal option. While advice for those with elevated cholesterol was previously to avoid eggs, this has now been retracted based on more recent medical evidence and those with elevated cholesterol can safely eat up to 8 eggs per week.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 red onion, finely sliced
Bag of fresh baby spinach
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
4 large free range or organic eggs
80-100g goat’s cheese
Fresh basil leaves (optional)
HOW TO MAKE IT
- Sauté onion in olive oil in a frying pan with a metal or oven-proof handle for 3-5 minutes
- Add tomatoes and spinach
- Roughly beat 4 eggs and pour over vegetable mixture
- Cook for a further 2 – 3 minutes on hob
- Top with crumbled goat’s cheese and cook under pre-heated grill for 3 – 4 minutes or until frittata is cooked through
- Alternatively place the egg and vegetable mix into an oven-proof dish and bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 15 minutes. Take out of the oven and add the crumbled goat’s cheese, then put back in oven for another 5 minutes until cheese has melted.
- Garnish with fresh basil and serve with roast vegetables or a green salad.
