When you’re craving a warming supper at the end of a chilly autumn day, look no further than this quick and easy frittata. Bursting with beta-carotene-rich sweet potatoes, fibrous spinach and tangy goat cheese this egg-based wonder tastes just as delicious for breakfast the next day, too!


8 whole eggs
½ cup almond milk (or your preferred milk)
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
1 ½ cups sweet potato, chopped into small cubes and baked until soft
½ cup goat cheese, crumbled
1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium white onion, chopped


Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

In a large bowl whisk the eggs, then add the milk, spinach, sweet potato, goat cheese and seasonings. Set aside.

Saute the onion in the olive oil for a few minutes or until softened, then remove from heat and allow the onions to cool. Once cooled, add to frittata mixture and stir.

Grease a 10x10 pan and pour in your frittata mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes or just until eggs are set and top is golden.
