I added parmesan and shredded cheese to the ricotta, italian herbs to the eggs, garlic with the leek, cooked for 10min in oven and it was perfect :D
Definitely a solid option - flavors didn’t really jump out but it was a good meal!
Easy, light and tasty (I added some adobo per another person's comments). Steamed the cauliflower in my rice cooker since I don't have a microwave. I baked it at 375 for about 15 mins. Made for breakfast without the salad, with the salad would be perfect for a brunch.
Was fine but nothing to write home about. I followed the recipe exactly and found the frittata a bit bland, but edible. The salad was nice but could have used a goat cheese or something similar.
Not enough salt for the amount of vegs. I felt it was way too much leek and not enough egg. Fresh cauliflower (microwaved steamed) was really nice. I wouldn't buy ricotta just for this. If you have parmesan cheese, that would be a better option.
It was fine, but someone up there needs to change the instructions on how hot and how long to cook it in the oven. My husband took one look at 425 for 20 mins and laughed. We did 375 for 12 minutes (portion for 6)
