Lazy girl’s dinner: green frittata

When it’s mid week and hump day dinner rolls around, motivation can be at an all time low – especially when it’s a meal-for-one situation. Instead of organising take-out and as much as we always have our beloved avo on toast for an emergency nourish back up (let’s face it, it’s not really a substantial dinner meal) we need something with a bit of protein, greens and full of flavour that’s a cinch to whip up. Cue our lazy girl’s dinner: asparagus, sweet potato and ricotta frittata. We’ve done the thinking for you, so all you have to do is reach for the fridge – because no doubt you already have most of these ingredients already in your crisper.
