Magnesium Meal with Spinach
Hey Foodie Club members!
Here is this week's recipe for magnesium rich food and it uses spinach (one of my favorite leafy greens). Not only will you get a good dose of magnesium with this dish. You also get a decent amount of potassium from the potato and spinach, which can help improve blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.
Healthy Breakfast Frittata
3 tbsp olive oil
2 onions (finely chopped)
8 oz cooked potatoes (peeled or not peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch cubes)
2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
7 oz cooked spinach (drained thoroughly and roughly chopped)
4 tbsp roasted red pepper (finely chopped)
5 eggs (lightly beaten)
3-4 tbsp of cheese of your choice
Salt and pepper to taste
*Makes enough for 4 servings.
Heat the olive oil in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat.
Add the onions and potatoes and cook for 3-4 minutes until the veggies have softened (turn and stir often).
Add garlic, spinach, and peppers and stir to mix.
Beat the eggs, season with pepper, and pour into frying pan. (Pro tip: shake the pan as you pour the eggs to evenly spread them throughout).
Cook for 8-10 minutes until it is set at the bottom.
Sprinkle cheese of choice over the top.
If you want the cheese to be golden brown and crusty on top then place in a pre-heated oven, under the broiler on low for 2-4 minutes (check it regularly to avoid burning).
Remove from heat, cut it into triangles and serve warm or at room temp.
*Total time 30 minutes (including prep)
