Frittata with Fresh Greens, Caramelized Onions and Parmesan Cheese

November 15, 2011 by Melanie Zook

I’ve been talking about leafy greens (spinach, kale, mustard greens, Swiss chard, etc.) a lot lately. They are abundant in spring and fall. They’re in a class all their own when it comes to nutrition—full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber. We know we should eat more of them, but sometimes, it’s just hard to find new, fresh ideas for how to fit them into your daily meals. What to do with leafy greens besides sautéing them with garlic?

My new favorite way to prepare leafy greens is to make a quick frittata. (A frittata is an egg-based dish, like an open-faced omelet or a crustless quiche). This has been a quick, protein-rich lunch & dinner in our house. In addition to being a 20-minute dinner that even your kids will eat, one of the best parts is that it’s a one-pot wonder—besides your cutting board, you’ll dirty only one pan. Try it for brunch this weekend with a side of sliced pears.
