Spinach, Ricotta & Mint Frittata



I grew up with Frittata’s left, right, center and you can make this 17 different ways! This one I usually make with basil but I loved the mint I picked up from the market yesterday.

What You’ll Need:

  • Cast Iron Skillet or Non-Stick pan
  • 5-6  handfuls of spinach
  • 1 garlic clove finely chopped
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 4-5 eggs
  • 1 cup of Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of your fresh herb, Basil or Mint
  • Olive Oil
  • Parmigiano (optional but recommended for garnish)



  1. Cook your spinach just until its wilted and then rinse with cold water, chop up and set aside. Chop your fresh herb.
  2. In a bowl combine all your ingredients and whisk together like so:
  3. frittataTurn on your heat and let your fry pan get warm, test an area by dropping some egg mixture, does it sizzle a bit? Then its ready!
  4. Pour mixture into the pan on medium-low heat, covered. After about 8-10 minutes, once the top rim of your frittata is slightly cooked, place in the oven under broiler for a few minutes until the top cooks. Make sure it doesn’t burn, keep your eye on it.
  5. Remove from heat, cut into quarters and garnish with fresh herbs and parmigiano!
