I am obsessed with greens, and T1 (my older daughter) got used to having something green in almost any food, because she knows that greens are our tummies friends. And when that food is also delicious that’s even better. This green sweet pea quinoa frittata is fully loaded of spring onion, parsley, and sweet peas, to which I added some more good protein from this pretty red quinoa. Easy recipe for any kid to enjoy, and any parent too.
It’s green sweet pea quinoa frittata this time
This was a very simple choice at the moment; later I’ve made variations from kale, a bit of home-made smoked ham, just for the flavour (I often do that), swiss chard, or any other greens I could find. Just play with the ingredients, and let your kid involve. Let him or her choose what to add more to the recipe and they will enjoy it even more at the end.
Green Sweet Pea Quinoa Spotted Frittata
- 1 small spring onion chopped
- 2 tbsp parsley or cilantro chopped
- 1/4 cup sweet peas boiled 4 mins, smashed
- 1 large free-range egg
- 2 tbsp red quinoa boiled, (preferably hidrated over night)
- 1/2 tbsp grass-fed butter
- 1 tsp water
- salt and pepper
- hard cheese grated
First boil the peas, discard water and smash
Separately thoroughly wash quinoa into a sieve and then boil it with salt and a bay leaf (optional).
Warm a small skillet (about 5 inches was mine) and melt the butter and add the onion; sautee for 2 mins
Add sweet peas, quinoa, parsley, the beaten egg with 1 tsp water and seasoning, mix a bit, lower fire and cover
Cook until holding together (the egg should be done)
Serve with some grated hard cheese on top while warm
