Don’t forget to give some love to our awesome sponsor, Divemex, and check them out on Facebook! Here’s a fun fact about this great company. The growers of Divemex specialize in greenhouse grown peppers in state of the art facilities that facilitate the production of the highest quality peppers in some of the safest facilities anywhere.  But most importantly, as a Fair Trade Certified company, they have an unwavering commitment to social responsibility that puts workers first. Pretty impressive, huh?

For today’s recipe, I made something for the very first time ever. Frittata! I know; it’s something so simple and I bet every other food blogger out there has made them a zillion times. But for some reason, I’ve always been intimidated. I am awful at making omelets, so I didn’t think I’d be good at this. But it really is nothing like an omelet so I have no idea what I was afraid of. I don’t like the taste of eggs — never have and never will. So whenever I order any kind of egg dish, it’s always egg whites. It’s healthier anyway! My frittata uses egg whites, spinach, baby bella mushrooms, grape tomatoes…and of course our star ingredients, PEPPERS! Oh, and I topped it with only the most delicious cheese in the world: goat cheese! 


Spinach, Peppers, Mushroom and Tomato Frittata #PepperParty

Seriously, if there’s goat cheese in a dish, I’m there. I made the frittata in a very small skillet so it would be just the perfect amount for one or two servings, depending on how hungry you are. You can adjust the measurements accordingly. For my first attempt at a frittata, I’m pretty impressed with how it turned out. Go me!

Spinach, Peppers, Mushroom and Tomato Frittata #PepperParty


Spinach, Peppers, Mushroom and Tomato Frittata
Adapted from Fresh Mushroom’s Egg White Frittato with Tomatoes, Spinach, Mushrooms and Goat Cheese

1 tsp olive oil
1 cup fresh spinach leaves, torn into small pieces
¼ cup grape tomatoes, halves
¼ cup sliced baby bella mushrooms
¼ cup red, yellow and orange peppers, small diced
3 large egg whites
salt, pepper, garlic powder
2 oz. goat cheese

Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and peppers and sauté until they start to brown. Add tomatoes and sauté until soft. Add spinach. Stir until the spinach is wilted. Season with salt and pepper.

Whisk the egg whites with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Pour over the vegetables in the skillet and stir until combined. Reduce to medium-low heat. Let cook for about 5 minutes, until the eggs set. Do not stir during this time.

Crumble and scatter the goat cheese on top. Broil in the oven for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
