Frittata Muffins

Labels: , , ,

I was reading The Clever Gut Diet Book and the author suggests eating plenty of a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables. They contain beneficial phytochemicals. I have been cooking dishes that have a combination of colorful vegetables. Baked layered rattatouille was one and it was delicious.

I have some small pieces of almost getting bad yellow and red bell peppers and some leftover steamed asparagus. I sauted some crimini mushrooms and made frittata muffins. They are good for breakfast, as a snack, or for lunch. Easy to pack too and doesn't need to be heated because they are good hot or at room temperature.

You can use any leftover vegetables or saute what you like or have in the refrigerator. The ingredients are your choice. You can add grated cheese or crumbled bacon or you can line your muffin tins with prosciutto.
