Get a head start on your New Year’s Resolutions with this Leek, Mushroom and Yogurt Frittata!! It’s that time of year again… yes, the holiday party season is here! Which means lots and lots of holiday goodies. So I decided to get a head start on my New Year’s resolution. No, it isn’t about avoiding the goodies or working out 7 days a week. No, this year my resolution is all about “balance” – with work, with exercise and definitely with food! In terms of food, that means focusing on more nutrient dense dishes – like this Leek, Mushroom and Yogurt Frittata.
Yes, you read that right. Yogurt. In a frittata. Which probably won’t surprise you since yogurt is one of my all time favorite ingredients to work with. I use it in pasta sauces, smoothies, in dressings, and regularly substitute it for sour cream – so there is always a container of Chobani® Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt in my refrigerator. High in protein, calcium and low in fat, Chobani® Non -Fat Plain Greek Yogurt is a wonderfully nutrient dense ingredient that is also incredibly versatile.
Such as subbing for milk and/or cream in this Leek, Mushroom and Yogurt Frittata. But putting yogurt with eggs is nothing new. In the middle east, cooks often add yogurt to omelets and have been doing so for centuries. So I decided to see how it would work in a frittata.
And it’s amazing. But more about that in a minute.
While I was at Walmart picking up lights and wrapping paper, I grabbed some leeks, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes and a 32 oz. Chobani® Non Fat Plain Greek Yogurt. Don’t you love it when you can multi task like that?
I had decided to keep this experiment simple with just a few ingredients…
I also kept the preparation simple too. Just saute the leeks and mushrooms together…
Combine the Chobani® Non Fat Plain Greek Yogurt with the eggs, making sure to whisk thoroughly to combine them…
Then add the eggs and yogurt to the sauteed leeks and mushrooms and sprinkle with the sun dried tomatoes. Now, you “might” be tempted to add a little cheese to this frittata, but it honestly doesn’t need it! The Chobani® Non Fat Plain Greek Yogurt provides an amazing amount of flavor on it’s own!
And then bake for 25 minutes until the frittata is puffed and golden brown!
Take it out of the oven and let rest for 3 – 5 minutes and then slice and enjoy! With a little side salad and perhaps some fresh bread a quick and nutrient dense dinner is served.
Or a late night munch.
It pretty much works for any occasion – and with any mix of vegetables – onions, bell peppers, spinach, zucchini, chard… the possibilities are truly endless… and definitely in keeping with this time of year!
