Got left over veggies in the fridge at the end of the week? Why not cook them up into a healthy, high protein, low carb vegetable frittata. The great thing about a frittata is that you can use up whatever vegetables you have left in the fridge. Enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or freeze as part of meal prep for the week… The roasted vegetables add a lovely flavour to the frittata… Happy Cooking!
