Kat’s Lifesaving Frittata

Kat's Lifesaving Frittata

Whilst Sarah continues to enjoy her trip around Japan we welcome one of community members, Kat, to step into Sarah’s shoes and share a recipe with us tonight. You might remember Kat from our ‘My Organic Story Series’  and trust us when we say you’ll want to read this recipe post right to the very end! Take it away Kat….
As a busy mum of three little monsters finding time to make a healthy lunch (as opposed to the left over crusts from the kids sandwiches) is exhausting and sometimes at the bottom of the priority list. So being organised and doing a little weekly prep can make the world of difference. This Frittata recipe is a life saver! It can be cooked, sliced and frozen ready to be grabbed out of the freezer whenever time gets away from me (which is a regular thing in my house)….and as a bonus it’s extra soft so an easy lunch or dinner for my 10 month old to pick up and munch on.

I do have the luxury of having a Thermomix (the world greatest gift to busy, health conscious mums!) so I made the frittata using that. However, I have also given you the alternative steps so that even if you don’t own a Thermomix you don’t miss out!!! Kat's Lifesaving Frittata
