Mushroom and Spinach Frittata

It's that time again... time for the Secret Recipe Club!

This month I was assigned to India's blog, A Vegan Obsession. I'm not at all familiar with the vegan lifestyle so it was cool to peruse through her blog and see how she cooks and eats.

I chose her frittata to make, but adapted it to my likings a bit, and used eggs.

Mushroom and Spinach Frittata
adapted from A Vegan Obsession
  • 16 oz baby bella mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 a yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 5 eggs
  • salt to taste 
  • sour cream, for topping
Preheat broiler.

Rinse mushrooms to remove dirt. In a large oven-proof skillet, saute mushrooms on high and stir, until water has drained from mushrooms and formed in skillet; drain. Add 2 tablespoons butter and continue to saute and stir. Season with salt and stir. 

Reduce to low heat, add onion and garlic and saute for 3-5 minutes. 

Add spinach and saute until wilted. 

Beat eggs in a bowl; add eggs to skillet. Cover skillet with lid and cook for about 15 minutes, or until eggs are nearly set.

Remove lid and put skillet under the broiler for 2-5 minutes until the top is nicely browned and eggs are set, watching so that it doesn't brown too much.

Slice and serve hot.

Top with sour cream, if desired.

Frittatas are so delicious, warm or cold, and welcome such a variety of fillings. Mushrooms and spinach are perfect choices.

I know you either love or hate but in my book, you can go wrong pairing mushrooms with spinach :)

Love a great frittata and yours looks wonderful! Glad to be part of SRC with you.

Veronica Miller said...

So I'm proud of you for not adding bacon since this came from a vegan blog and you were pretty tame with only changing the eggs...but since India will never know (please don't let her return to read follow-up comments and please don't strike me dead with lightening, God)...I'm smothering this in bacon in my head!! Bwahahahaha

This is a great choice and I am tempted to run to the kitchen and make it. It is being featured, this week, at My Meatless Mondays. Thanks for sharing.

Not to mention a passionate community of cooks and food lovers are engaged in social media and blogging sharing their personal preferences in cooking. Creating their own cooking style, creativity in presentation and a combination of recipe design. But let us not forget about Designing the Menu, in fact graphically designed menu is essential to customer in a restaurant because it will attract them to order. If we will do more research, we can find recipes coming from top cookbooks and magazines, a growing number of recipes are shared by the cooks in their community websites.
