Meat Free Monday – Spinach and Goats Cheese Frittata

Monday – back to work 😏 My veggie drawer is looking a little sad, so our Meat Free dinner will be a Frittata – Spinach, watercress, spring onion and goats cheese 😊


Turn the grill onto high


I roughly chop the veg, ready to go, then pop a glug of Veg oil in an oven proof frying pan, over a medium heat, I have also used the remains of a jar of chargrilled peppers from the weekend.


Pop the veg into the pan,


followed by the eggs,


I am using 8 eggs for this little beauty, whisk together with a glug of cream (or milk), salt, pepper. Pour over the veg and gently stir.


As the edges of the Frittata start to pull away from the pan, add slices of goats cheese, I use the creamy ‘log’ version.


Put the pan under the grill, whilst you get the rest of your bits ready – keep an eye on it.


The menfolk are having fried new potatoes with theirs, chop your potatoes

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
