I wish that I could say that I am supermom. I work full time, tutor after school and run a blog. I am far from supermom. I have to take a lot of help sometimes from the freezer department when creating meals at home. Some of them are healthier than others. Every once in a while I find a healthy meal that I can make from scratch in a hurry, and that everyone loves. When I find those gems I never let them go. This Florentine Frittata is one of them.
I decided to head out to our local Walgreens Oasis Store to pick up everything that I needed for this meal. Anytime I go to Walgreens I pull out my cell phone and go to the Walgreens app. With the Walgreens app I can check my Balance Rewards points (Walgreens shopper rewards system where you earn points for things purchased in store and online and then you can redeem the points for credit) and I can also download any photos that I want to be printed right off of my phone.
I take tons and tons of pictures with all of my cameras. When I put them into my computer they upload into my photo stream and I can access them from my phone. I love this because I can then upload them to the Walgreens app and have them printed and waiting for me when I go shopping. I uploaded over 30 to go into Caroline’s and Jonah’s memory books.
I’m sure some of you may not know what a Walgreens Oasis store is. It is store with everything that a regular Walgreens has plus fresh produce. Yes, you heard me correctly, you can purchase fresh produce from Walgreens. I knew that I only had time to go to one store before my kids would throw a fit, so we headed to our local Walgreens Oasis store to pick up everything.
I was able to pick up my photos, shop for fresh produce, and make sure I had diapers all at the same store. This makes it so much simpler to keep fresh fruit and veggies in the fridge. I got all of the ingredients (except the tomatoes that I already had in the fridge) for my frittata.
I know your dying for the recipe… here it is. I found this in the Eating Light Spring 2012 magazine. I love that particular magazine because all of the recipes are 400 calories or less and it makes staying on a diet easy.
- 1 package frozen spinach. You will want to thaw this and squeeze out all the moisture.
- 4 large eggs
- 4 large egg whites
- 2 green onions I used regular white onion that I grated because that is all I had on hand
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
Preheat your broiler.
Combine all of the ingredients except 1/4 cup of the mozzarella and tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to your taste.
Heat oil in a broiler safe skillet on medium.
Pour egg mixture into skillet and arrange tomatoes on top. Cover and cook 5 to 6 minutes, or until it is just set around the edges.
Place skillet in broiler and broil frittata 4 to 5 minutes.
Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and broil until cheese melts.
Losen frittata from skillet and slide onto a serving platter.
Cut into wedges and serve!
I would love to hear what you think! Do you have a favorite frittata recipe?
