A simple frittata, made with the vegetables languishing in the crisper of your fridge just before shopping day, is a healthy, delicious and economical meal. Using up those veggies, before they go way past their best, is not only frugal but it stops the contents of your crisper adding to the shameful piles of food waste thrown away by many households every year. It's a great dish for using up leftover roasted veg too!
The recipe, for Roast Vegetable Free-Up the Fridge Frittata, comes from Melissa Goodwin of the blog, Frugal and Thriving. All you need to do is:
Liberate any languishing veggies from your crisper. Cut them into chunks & roast them.
Gather some simple ingredients for your frittata.
Add your roasted veggies to the whisked eggs & cream.
Put in some cubes of ham or bacon if you want to.
Top with some grated tasty cheese.
Bake your frittata until cheese is melted & golden.
This tasty frittata makes a delicious lunch or dinner. Leftovers are great for a veggie-laden breakfast or to take to work or school in the lunchbox. (It makes a nice change to sandwiches or rolls.) Best of all, it's a dish that's good for you and, if you use up veggies you might otherwise have thrown away, it's good for our Earth too!
Have a very happy weekend everyone.
