SAMPLE RECIPE: Florentine Frittata
Serves: 2 | Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes
With detoxifying properties found in artichokes, herbs, and leafy greens, this healing frittata is a quick and easy, yet filling and flavorful breakfast. Look for free-range eggs, which are full of heart-healthy fatty acids, vitamins, and quality protein.
1. Combine the eggs, salt, pepper, and herbs (if using) in a small bowl and whisk well with a fork. Set aside.
2. Preheat the broiler to 450ºF and position a rack in the upper half of the oven.
3. Heat the oil in a small (4- to 5-inch) ovenproof skillet or omelet pan over medium heat. Add the spinach, tomatoes, and artichoke hearts and sauté 1 to 2 minutes, until the spinach is just wilted.
4. Pour in the egg mixture and let it cook undisturbed for 3 to 4 minutes over medium heat, or until the eggs begin to set on the bottom.
5. Breaking the goat cheese into clumps (if using), sprinkle along the top of the egg mixture and transfer the skillet to the oven.
6. Broil for another 3 to 4 minutes, or until the frittata is firm in the center and golden brown on top.
7. Remove the frittata from the oven and run a rubber spatula around the edge to loosen the sides.
8.Transfer the frittata to a large plate or cutting board and slice it in half to make 2 servings. Serve warm or cold atop a salad for a light lunch.
