Yogurt would definitely be something I would take to a desert island.
I absolutely adore it. I am definately amongst the 20 percent of British consumers who eat yogurt on a daily basis. As is my youngest with the almost constant ‘more yogit mama’. We have it in everything. And I do mean everything. Pancakes, smoothies, rice, couscous, dips, on pasta, in salads, on granola and just as a plain old snack.
So I and the mini chefs are please to be taking part in the UK’s first every yogurt week. The Yogurt Council aims to celebrate all things yogurt with tons of activities, competitions as well as a free yogurt recipe book and a meal planner. Thanks to these guys we now have even more yogurt recipes to test out and we will be painting our plant pots with yogurt to create our very own shabby chic look.
I got the mini chefs to vote on which recipe they would make for yogurt week and I reckon these baked mini yogurt and spinach frittatas won because of their cuteness factor. I mean, anything baked in mini portions in MUFFIN tins has just got to be cute, right?
Mini chefs certainly think so. These are as simple as whisking eggs along with yogurt, spinach, herbs and cheese before baking them. Plus the kids have masses of fun adapting these with leftover vegetables and meat.
The good thing about these frittatas is that they are delicious eaten warm but equally scrumptious cold. So perfect for picnics, lunch boxes, breakfast and general food on the go. Feel free to prepare them in advance and reheat if you need to.
And now over to the mini chefs to present their baked mini yogurt and spinach frittatas. Can they get a big yogurt loving yummmmmmmmmmmmmmm?
