Ramadan food: Mini frittatas

Healthy fast - Suhoor

Suhoor is the most important meal of the day during Ramadan as it is the fuel to get you through a day of fasting. Since most of us eat Suhoor just before Fajr, it also needs to be quick and easy to prepare. This makes it tempting to reach for a bowl of sugary cereal or a pastry, but these high-carb, low-protein options will have you feeling hunger pains long before Magrib. Instead, try this make-ahead, protein and fibre-packed option. When you just have to have sweet, balance it out with fibre and protein, as with these wonderful mini frittatas that can last you all week. Eat alongside yoghurt and a piece of fruit for a complete meal.

Mini Frittatas
(Makes 8)

6 large eggs
1/3 cup milk
3 slices of meat of your choice (turkey, chicken, meat, or mushrooms for vegetarian option), roughly chopped
Handful of baby spinach, roughly chopped
1/4 cup canned corn
1/3 cup shredded cheese
Salt and pepper to taste (1/4-1/2 tsp)

Preheat oven to 176C. Grease muffin tin or line with muffin liners. In a large bowl, mix together eggs and milk until well combined. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tin, about 3/4 full. Transfer muffin tin to oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Remove muffin tin and let cool completely.
Use a small knife to run around the edges of the frittatas to release them from the muffin tin. The frittatas can be kept in the refrigerator for five days or frozen for up to a month.
Reheat in microwave before serving.
