HEALTHY HOT CHOCOLATE

SALMON, TOMATO AND SPINACH FRITTATA
- 1 large red onion, finely diced
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 150g tomatoes, finely diced
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 1kg zucchini, grated, water removed (see tip)
- 6 large eggs
- 210g can red salmon in spring water
- 2 tbs flat-leaf parsley, chopped
Preheat oven to 200⁰C and prepare a large baking dish by greasing well with coconut oil.
In a large frying pan, sauté the onion and garlic in a little coconut oil over medium heat until soft and fragrant, then add the tomatoes, baby spinach and zucchini and continue to cook over high heat for about 10 minutes, or until the ingredients are soft and most of the moisture has evaporated. Set aside and allow to cool for 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk the eggs well in a bowl, then add the salmon and parsley. Gradually add the vegetables, combining well.
Pour the ingredients into the prepared baking dish and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes, or until cooked through and golden brown on top.
Tip: to remove excess water from the grated zucchinis, squeeze them with paper towel until dry.
