  • 2 cups Pumpkin, peeled and diced into 2cm x 2cm pieces (approx 1/4 small Pumpkin)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • tender and golden. After half way, add capsicum to tray and roast for remaining time. 
  • In a large bowl whisk eggs lightly with almond milk, salt and pepper. 
  • Remove cooked vegetables from oven. 
  • In a greased or lined quiche or pie dish spread vegetables out evenly. Sprinkle over baby spinach. Pour over egg mixture ensuring that all vegetables

Notes

Serving Suggestions:
  • Serve with a side of fresh salad greens or cooked greens such as spinach, kale, silverbeet, broccoli or green beans.
  • Serve with a dollop of Dairy Free Basil Pesto.
Make It Personal:
  • Add your favourite fresh or dried herbs and spices to the mixture.
  • Add a sprinkle of curry powder to your egg mixture.
  • Add 1 - 2 spring onions chopped to egg mixture.
Recipe Tips:
  • Adding almond milk to the eggs helps to create a mixture that is light ad fluffy and helps the eggs to go further. If you prefer, you can omit almond milk and just use whole eggs or a combination of whole eggs and egg whites.
  • For a quicker frittata, steam your pumpkin and sweet potato instead of roasting and use raw capsicum.
Sensitive to Nuts?
  • Omit almond milk or substitute for Coconut Drinking Milk or Coconut Milk + water (1:1 ratio).
To make this recipe low FODMAP:
  • Stick to 1/2 cup sweet potato per serve. 
  • Use Jap pumpkin and not butternut pumpkin.
