A pretty one-dish-meal - protein/veggie combo appropriate for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great for parties and pot lucks, too.

  • Olive Oil - 2 Tablespoons
  • Leeks - 2, whites only, thinly sliced
  • Eggs, 12, beaten
  • Asparagus tips, blanched
  • Spinach, 2 cooked cups with water squeezed out (18 oz. raw = 2 cups cooked)
  • Parsley or Basil - 1/4 cup, chopped
  • Goat Cheese - 4 oz. crumbled
  • Goat Jack style cheese or Parmesan or other beneficial cheese - 1/2 cup
  • Salt - 1/2 teaspoon or omit

How to make it:
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Saute leeks in olive oil about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  4. All veggies should be cooled after they are prepared.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs with the rest of the ingredients.
  6. Mix well!
  7. Prepare a springform pan with oil and an approved flour to prevent sticking.
  8. Use olive oil dusted with cornmeal.
  9. Pour the egg mixture into the pan.

  12. Loosen around the edge with a knife.
  13. Invert the frittata onto a serving plate and remove sides and base of springform pan and flip right side up onto another serving plate - or - remove the sides of the springform pan and transfer onto serving plate.
