Frittata - potato, spinach and cheese
A really easy to make and nutritious dish - with protein for muscle repair from the eggs and cheese, iron and vitamin c from the spinach, and carbohydrate from the potato to replenish lost glycogen stores in your muscles for energy to exercise and perform at your best.
Ingredients (serves 2):
1 potato (approx 175-200g) peeled and sliced
4 large eggs
Freshly grated nutmeg
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Approx 125g of baby leaf spinach
50g cheese chopped (i used soft goats cheese but you could use any really)
2 tsp olive oil
1 onion chopped (I used a red one)
1 crushed garlic clove
Cook the potato slices in a small pan of boiling water for 5 mins until tender
Beat the eggs in a large bowl and season with the salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Stir in the potatoes, spinach and cheese.
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan. Add the onions and saute for 4-5 mins until softened. Add the garlic and cook for a further minute.
Pour in the frittata mixture and cook for a few minutes until the eggs are almost set.
Place the pan underneath a hot grill until the top is set and golden.
Slide a knife around the edge and use a fish slice / spatula to put the frittata on to a large plate.
Cut in to wedges and serve with a nice big leafy salad!
