  • 1 cup of organic spinach
  • 1tsp of dried thyme leaves
  • 2 cups of egg substitue
  • 1/4 cup low-fat goat milk
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella

  1. Instructions
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Warm oil in 10' ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add leeks and Garlic; cook 8 minutes,until softened and fragrant, stirring often.
  3. During the last 2 minutes add the spinach. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, thyme leaves, low-fat goat milk, and salt. Stir in cheese. Pour over leek mixture in skillet. Gently lift up leek mixture to coat bottom of pan. Arrange tomato slices in overlapping pattern on top. Cook 8 minutes, until sides are set but mixture is still loose on top. Transfer skillet to oven and cook 10 minutes, until center is cooked through and tomatoes are lightly browned. Remove from oven; run a rubber spatula around edges and underneath to loosen frittata from skillet. Slide onto serving platter. Cut into wedges.
