I’m sharing a super lazy spinach frittata recipe here, nothing ground breaking, but just a lovely shortcut to make a filling, fresh meal that requires minimal ingredients and little effort.
This Italian egg-based dish similar to a quiche (but without the crust!) has been one of my staples since I was a student, and it’s still going strong in my household.
The recipe uses only 3 ingredients: frozen spinach, feta, eggs (salt and pepper, of course!) and no stove or pans required.
It’s one of those easy recipes perfect for a brunch or a busy weeknight dinner, and it’s absolutely great to get LOADS of green vegetables without even realising it. : )
Frittata with spinach is also super convenient and keeps well, it’s easy to transport (hello packed lunch!) and kid-approved.
List of the ingredients
- Frozen spinach
- Feta cheese (or goat cheese)
- Salt & pepper
How to make spinach frittata
(Note: this is a quick description with step-by-step photos, the full recipe is at the bottom of the page)
- Preheat the oven.
- Place the thawed and squeezed spinach in a baking pan.
- Add the crumbled feta.
- Pour the egg mixture and bake. Easy peasy!
Spinach frittata ingredients
Spinach: if chopping veggies doesn’t fit in your busy schedule, frozen spinach is so terrific to keep on hand and great to pack your frittata with healthy leafy greens. And this spinach frittata recipe uses 1 lb of spinach, just saying!
Eggs: convenient and economical, eggs provide plenty of protein.
Cheese: the savory feta – or goat cheese – adds rich flavor and creamy factor, so you don’t want to skip the cheese in this recipe. I used the block of feta, it’s convenient and tastes better than the crumbled option.
Salt & pepper: as usual, you need both salt and pepper to add more flavor.
Fancy some variations?
Frozen spinach are so convenient, but this crustless quiche is very flexible so you’re welcome to use some leftover roasted potatoes, sautéed kale, leeks or peas instead of spinach.
And if you don’t keep it vegetarian, you might toss in some shredded ham, bacon, or grated cheddar cheese or parmesan cheese for more flavor.
Spinach frittata leftovers
You can be creative with leftover frittatas, it’s versatile and keeps well:
- Use a slice of spinach and feta frittata as a sandwich filling: it makes one of the most popular filling for panini in Italy (speaking of which, have you ever tried these EASY panini rolls?!).
- Make the perfect lunch box. I usually cut spinach frittata into little squares for my little one, it makes a balanced school lunch box alongside fresh vegetables, bread, and fruit.
