Goats Cheese, Spinach & Pesto Frittata

Creamy, rich and again, full of flavor. I normally make extra and have the leftovers for lunch or an afternoon snack - hot or cold.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1 small onion (finely sliced)
  • 1/2 cup spinach (approx 100g)
  • 4 whole eggs (free-range or organic)
  • 2 egg whites (save the yolks for another recipe)
  • 1/3 cup soft goats cheese (approx 75g)
  • 2 tbsp. basil pesto

Instructions
 

  • Heat the coconut oil in a medium pan and sauté the onion until soft.
    Heat the grill to medium. When the onion is soft,add in the spinach and cook until wilted.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs and eggs whites and season with salt and pepper.
    Pour the eggs over the spinach and onions, covering it evenly.
    Cook for 5-6 minutes until the sides have started to set.
  • Top the eggs with the goats cheese and place the pan under the grill for about 10-15 minutes allowing the eggs to set.
  • Shake the pan gently to check if the eggs are set. (careful - from experience, the handle might be hot!)
    If it looks runny, then return under the grill for another 2-3 minutes.

Notes

NOTE:
I make the pesto in bulk from home-grown basil and freeze it. 
(Tip - put into sandwich bags, smooth out the pesto, use a blunt knife to score lines and lay flat to freeze - then just break off the amount you need).
