Herb & Mustard Vegie Fritatta

We have this dish about once a week when we have vegies left over from dinner the night before that need to be used up. Don’t hold this against it though! It honestly is as tasty as it is nutritious. This recipe is one of my 13 year old daughters absolute favourites and I think it will be a favourite with your family too.

Eggs are such a complete and easily assimilated food. They are rich sources of B group vitamins, zinc, iron, calcium, magnesium, iodine and biotin. Better still they are also rich in protein and good fats so they will satiate and sustain you. Having this for breakfast will fuel you for a good chunk of the day, and is just perfect to nourish childrens growing minds and bodies for a day concentrating at school.

This recipe is gluten free, grain free, nut free and can be made dairy free if required.
