Spinach Frittata Recipe (Gluten and Dairy-Free!)

I still have a few recipes that I need to post before I get into the kid-friendly and vegetarian/vegan gluten-free recipes, and this spinach frittata is one of the ones I cooked a couple weeks ago and hadn’t gotten around to posting.

At this point, I’m sure people have noticed how much I love eggs.  I’ve eaten eggs my whole life, like most Americans, but I just recently started adding different ingredients (meats, veggies) to them and trying out some new ways to cook them.  This recipe is not only gluten-free, but dairy-free as well, because the “cheese” I use is Daiya Mozzarella.  If you aren’t dairy-free, you can use regular cheese like cheddar or mozzarella.

This spinach frittata is a great recipe to make if you have a family to feed and not a lot of time to cook.  I think the total cooking time was just under 30 minutes.

The Recipe

Ingredients (serves 3-4 people):

  • 3/4 cup white onion, chopped
  • 6 oz. fresh or frozen spinach
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Daiya Mozzarella
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2.  Cook spinach in 1/3 cup of water in a covered saucepan for a couple of minutes.  Remove when the spinach is starting to wilt.

3.  In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and the majority of the Daiya (leave a little bit to sprinkle on top later).  Season with salt and pepper.

4.  In a oven-proof skillet on medium heat, heat the olive oil.  Add in the onions and cook for about 5 minutes.  Add in the spinach and cook for an additional minute.

5.  Pour the egg mixture into the skillet with the spinach and onions.  Use a spatula to get the eggs underneath the other ingredients.

6.  Put the rest of the Daiya on top of the mixture.  Cook for about 5 minutes on medium heat, until the mixture is about half set.

7.  Place in the preheated oven.  Cook for 12-14 minutes, until the frittata is nice and puffy.

8.  Remove from heat.  Let cool for a few minutes, and cut into even pieces.

9.  Serve and enjoy!
