This week, leeks are making their second appearance in this simple frittata. Perfect for a protein-filled breakfast, or a French inspired dinner, this low-calorie dish takes 30 minutes from start to finish, and can be eaten throughout your busy week. Added bonus, toss in more non-starchy vegetables to your liking! We think this would be great with grilled zucchini, caramelized onions, asparagus, and/or fresh basil sprinkled on top. Happy cooking!
