5 healthy recipes for the whole family

When you’re cooking for the family, finding meals that are quick, inexpensive and require little fuss aren’t always easy to find.

From breakfast through to dinner (and snacks too!), here are five healthy recipes that the whole family will love.

Veggie frittata muffins

Ingredients:

· 1 red capsicum

· 6 eggs

· 1 cup low-fat ricotta cheese

· 1 small leek

· 250 grams of baby Roma tomatoes

· 1/2 bag baby spinach

Method:

· Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a muffin tin.

· Finely slice the leek and add to a frypan with a small amount of oil over medium heat. Cook for three minutes, until softened and slightly transparent.

· Dice the capsicum into roughly 1-centimetre pieces, then add to the fry pan and cook for a further three to four minutes, until softened.

· Quarter the tomatoes and add them to the pan with the baby spinach. Cook until all the veggies are heated through and the baby spinach has wilted. Transfer mixture to a bowl and allow to cool.

· Crack the eggs into a separate bowl. Add the ricotta, season with salt and pepper, and whisk to combine.

· Pour mixture into the muffin tin and cook for 20-25 minutes, or until golden on top and set through. Serve with a salad for a meal or eat as a healthy snack on the go.
