This was simple and very unique / tasty! Made it for a new mom & dad, so they could eat it any time — dinner, breakfast, middle of the night baby time. It keeps well, too!0 Helpful
Yum! I put the chickpeas in the frittata instead of on the salad (sauteed all the spices with the beans then added the onions ). It added a nice heartiness and spiciness. Liked the yogurt dressing but put a little mayo in it because it seemed a little chalky from the yogurt.0 Helpful
The frittata was good overall, though I found I was tired of it by the time I came back for leftovers, which isn't usually an issue. That said, the salad was delicious and I'm sure I'll make it again on its own! The yogurt dressing was particularly good!0 Helpful
I liked this as an interesting flavor profile for a frittata, but my husband wasn't a fan (he is neither a fan of mayo or cauliflower).0 Helpful
It was good, but I am not sure I would make it again.0 Helpful
