Lunch Of The Day - Spinach and Red Pepper Fritatta

I thought I'd show you a recipe from my menu planner. I made two servings on Wednesday, had one for lunch and will have the other tomorrow. It tastes great hot or cold, so it's great picnic or packed lunch food too.

Spinach and Red Pepper Fritatta

Makes 2 servings, 4 ProPoints per serving

3 mediums eggs, beaten
1/2 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
1 onion, sliced
1/2 courgette, chopped
100g potatoes
Handful washed spinach

Chop the potato into chunks - I cut it in half then sliced about 1/2cm thick. Heat a frying pan with a heatproof handle, add a few table spoons of cold water and the potatoes, onion, courgette and pepper. Cover and cook for around 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are cooked but still firm. You will need to stir occasionally and add more water if it starts to stick. Add the spinach and stir until it's wilted. Season well. Add the beaten eggs and make sure the filling is evenly distributed. Cook for a few minutes and the finish under a hot grill to set the top.

I served mine with a side salad and it was really nice. I like to make it with roasted veg too, and if you have left over boiled potatoes (waxy ones work best) you can just warm them with the veg in the pan before adding the eggs. Or throw it all in an oven proof dish and bake it like a crustless quiche/flan. If you've got some points/calories spare add some cottage cheese to make it even yummier!

What are you having for lunch today?



  1. Oh, that looks yummy! I pinned it on Pinterest so I can find it when I'm looking for something different.

    My lunches are boring. A sandwich, carrot sticks, and chips. I need to figure out how to make something more filling, yet under 10p+.

  2. Fritattas are always something that I forget to make yet I love them so much! They're so tasty.

    This looks delicious! I love spinach at the moment.
