Five Ingredient Recipes We Love

Spinach & Feta Frittata by Headbanger’s Kitchen (Serves 4)

Kicking things off with the most important meal of the day, here is a nourishing breakfast for an easy frittata. It’s a favorite of ours to whip up on the weekend with family or friends!

Ingredients include:

¼ cup heavy cream

¼ cup feta cheese

¼ cup mozzarella cheese

4 eggs

2 tablespoons butter

Heat spinach in a pan with butter until wilted. In a separate bowl, beat eggs until frothy, then add mozzarella cheese and combine well. Grease an oven safe dish and pour in the egg mixture. Randomly scatter the spinach on top and crumble feta cheese. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes. Slice and serve, adding seasoning to taste.

Fresh Tomato + Basil Bruschetta by Acme Farms & Kitchen (Serves 4)

This week on Acme Farms & Kitchen’s menu is a simple, healthy bruschetta recipe perfect for a quick and satisfying lunch! 

All you need is:

2 to 3 local organic tomatoes

Handful of fresh basil

A few cloves of garlic

Fresh baked baguette

Extra virgin olive oil

Slice your baguette into bite size pieces and toast in your oven for 5 to 7 minutes at 425 degrees F. In a bowl combine diced tomatoes, chopped basil, a drizzle of olive oil and minced garlic. Once the baguette is toasted, scoop your tomato mixture on top and add salt and pepper to taste. 

Optional: add fresh grated parmesan cheese for some extra flavor -- we highly recommend!
