Freekah Frittata

Freekah Frittata

Whole grain Freekah and brown rice veggie frittata.
1&1/2 cups of cooked Freekah and brown rice 50/50 mix, I found that they both had the same cooking time so put them in the rice cooker with a little salt. Set aside and let cool.
Next scramble 6 eggs in a bowl and add:
A good handful of chopped herbs eg parsely and chives
1/2 red capsicum finely chopped
1 grated carrot
2 spring onions finely chopped
1/2 cup grated tasty cheese
1 & 1/2 cups of cooked rice/ Freekah mixture

It may seem as though there isn’t enough egg for the amount of rice but it was definitely sufficient.
Pour the mixture into a line quiche dish, pat it the mixture down with the back of a spoon until it is flat. Pop it in a preheated oven for approx 30mins on 170, or until firm in the centre.
This frittata is a real meal on its own but you could serve with a side green salad or a piece of meat.
