RECIPE: MUSHROOM AND LEEK FRITTATA

Mushroom and Leek Frittata

You can’t go past frittatas if you’re looking for an easy, nutritious and of course, delicious meal to make for the week. This mushroom and leek frittata is an excellent option for any meal of the day. However for lunches and dinner I like to serve it together with a fresh green salad.

Mushrooms are also a fantastic source of Vitamin D and antioxidants, perfect to support immune system. Did you know a great way to enhance vitamin D in mushrooms is by leaving the mushrooms outside in the sun for 15 minutes to transform the UV light from the sun into Vitamin D in the mushrooms naturally. Just make sure you place them upside down with the gill sides facing towards the sun

This would have to be one of the most loved recipes I share with patients. Add it to your weekly meal prep and I’m sure you’ll love it too.
