Serves 2
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 package (10 ounces) frozen spinach, thawed and well-drained
2 large eggs
3 egg whites
1⁄3 cup fat-free evaporated milk
1⁄2 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
4 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
2 scallions , minced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
To make the frittata: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Heat the oil in a 10″ nonstick skillet over
medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in
the spinach. Reduce the heat to low. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and egg whites with the milk
until light yellow and frothy. Pour the egg mixture over the spinach in the skillet. Cook for 5–7
minutes, until the egg mixture is cooked on the bottom and almost set on top. Sprinkle with the
cheese. Bake in the oven until the eggs are set and the cheese has melted, 5–10 minutes.
To make the salsa: In a large bowl, stir together the tomatoes, scallions, garlic, cilantro, lime
juice, salt, and pepper. Serve fresh, at room temperature, over the frittata.
You can also serve the frittata with commercial jarred salsa.
