Post practice mushroom & swiss fritatta
This is the perfect combination of nutrients to refuel your system following a HIIT or strength training session. Not only packed with vitamins and protein, it is easy to prep, serve, and save.
Preheat oven to 400 `
Gather and prep following ingredients:
2 cups mixed mushrooms - such as button, oyster, and pink (loaded with B vitamins which appear in research to be healthy for the brain)
1/2 cup onions (may use scallion tips if FODMAP intolerant. Note: do not pre-cook scallions with mushrooms, just add at second stage before baking)
1 cup fresh chopped spinach (high in vitamins K, A and choline to name a few :)
1 cup chopped tomato (high in vitamin C and the antioxidant lycopene )
8 eggs lightly beaten (protein and selenium)
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (protein and calcium)
Salt to taste
Parsley to taste
Olive oil for cooking/coating pan
In a medium sized oven safe skillet with stove set to low, warm enough olive oil to coat entire pan. Then turn heat up to medium, add chopped onions and mushrooms, and then saute. When onions are translucent, and mushrooms are soft, add tomato and spinach and cook until slightly wilted. Finally, remove skillet from heat, quickly add beaten eggs, top evenly with cheese, spices, then salt & pepper. Transfer to oven for a few minutes (watch closely) until firm and cooked through.
Remove from oven, cool slightly, slice and serve.
May cool half and save for the next day too!
