Ham, Spinach, Broccoli & Red Pepper Frittata Recipe

Being a student during revision time usually consists of long hours in the library and non-stop boredom/eating/chatting/drinking/depression...

This year is a little different for me, I've spent more time in my room than I would like to admit and have been pretty strict (boring) with my snacking and eating. I tend to feel better about the stress when that's the case. Eating unhealthily usually just stresses me out even more during times when I'm pushed for workout or cooking time.

With that said, I was 100% bored the other day and definitely couldn't face the idea of having yet another spinach omelette for dinner, so I tried to make it a little bit more exciting.

Basically I whacked a few more things in than I usually would, baked it instead of frying and then called it a frittata, creative.

What you'll need (to serve two):
- 4 medium free range eggs
- 1 handful of spinach
- 1 handful of broccoli
- 3 slices of ham*
- 1/2 a red pepper
- 200ml skimmed milk
- 1 dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
- salt & pepper

What you'll do:
- preheat your oven to 180/200 degrees C (depending on whether its fan or not)
- Chop your spinach, red pepper, broccoli, ham, etc and place it all neatly on a chopping board to please your OCD (this just me?)
- Crack four medium free range eggs into a bowl and whisk until combined
- Add milk and chosen seasoning
- Parboil your broccoli pieces in a pan and then add to mixture
- Combine all ingredients and place in prepared/lined tin to bake (use low cal spray if possible)
- Bake until firm in the middle. Our uni ovens are crap and so this took 30 mins of me salivating at the oven door. If your oven isn't 56 years old then it should take about 20 minutes.

*You could also add onions and cheese if you are that way inclined.
Things learnt during this post: I still can't spell broccoli.

  1. That looks very delicious :) At least you are making an effort to cook instead of takeaway all the time.
