For a super meatless main dish that’s versatile enough to serve for breakfast or supper, try a frittata. Pronounced frih-TAH-tuh, it’s simply an Italian omelet. Think of it as a quiche without a crust — or all the fat.
We’ve removed some of the fat by using reduced-calorie margarine and some of the cholesterol by using a pasteurized egg product. Next we added more than a handful of spinach, which has plenty of iron, phytochemicals and vitamin C.
Pump it up: If you’re not concerned about the calorie count, substitute heart-healthy olive oil instead of margarine, which may contain trans fats.
Equipment tip: No need for an omelet pan, but housewares stores sell silicone spatulas that are heat-resistant up to 500 degrees and won’t knick the finish on a nonstick skillet.
