Equipment

  • Nonstick or cast iron skillet

Ingredients
  

  • 2 1/4 cups egg substitute the equivalent of 12 eggs, if you desire to mix
  • 3 Tablespoons nonfat milk or milk of choice
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 3 cups fresh spinach or 1 1/2 cups frozen spinach, defrosted, drained
  • 1/2 cup artichoke hearts chopped into thirds
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat feta cheese + 1 Tablespoon or desired cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • fresh pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil chopped into small pieces
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Always an option :): hot sauce

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place egg substitute, milk, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk until well-blended. Blend in the 3/4 cup cheese and set aside.
  • Place a medium nonstick skillet (or cast iron) over medium heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray and heat pan for 2–3 minutes.
  • Add garlic and sauté for 3–4 minutes. Add spinach and artichoke and continue to cook for 5–6 minutes, or until artichokes are slightly browned. Season with pepper to taste.
  • Give the egg mixture another whisk and pour over the vegetables. Stir with a rubber spatula briefly to combine and evenly distribute the eggs and veggies across the pan. Sprinkle with the remaining tablespoon of cheese.
  • Cook for a few minutes, or until the edges of the frittata turn a little lighter in color. Carefully transfer the pan to the preheated oven. Bake for 15 minutes, until the eggs are puffed and the center jiggles just a bit when you give the pan a gentle shake.
  • Remove the frittata from the oven and allow it to cool for about 5 minutes. Slice into 8 pieces. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and serve with hot sauce, if desired.
