Olive oil / Spray
200g sweet potato, peeled, cut into 1cm pieces
120g green round beans, trimmed, halved
80g (1/2 cup) frozen peas
1 shallot, trimmed, thinly sliced
125ml (1/2 cup) low-fat milk
4 eggs, lightly whisked
60g (1/4 cup) low-fat cottage cheese
35g (1/3 cup) Coarsely grated low fat cheddar
Step 1 Preheat grill on medium-high. Spray a 20cm (base measurement) non-stick ovenproof frying pan with oil. Heat over medium heat. Cook sweet potato, stirring, for 3-4 minutes or until slightly softened. Add beans. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add peas and cook for a further minute or until beans and peas are tender. Stir in the shallot and season with salt and pepper.
Step 2 Whisk milk, egg and cottage cheese in a jug. Pour over vegetables. Tilt to evenly distribute egg. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 8 minutes or until almost set.
Step 3 Top with the cheddar. Cook under grill for 3-5 minutes or until golden.
Alternate the vegetables above to enjoy various tasty dishes. E.g fine green beans, broccoli.
Try ham, mushroom, onion and switch low fat cottage cheese for sliced baby bell light– add black pepper. Or try a sprinkling of low fat mozzarella with beetroot and serve with a rocket salad.
Vary leaves, use normal tomatoes chopped up with basil, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, use sweet bell peppers, scallions shredded, and black olives for added flavour.
Try blanched brocolli, with cherry tomatoes, low fat feta crumbs, and a handful of cashew nuts as an alternative dish with your frittata.
Eat well and enjoy a healthy life with more energy. Enjoy..
