Spinach & Cheese Frittata

Here is a recipe for a light lunch/dinner dish which can be paired with a bowl of soup or a small salad. I just loved the texture of the frittata, it was absolutely light and fluffy.
Ingredients (Serves 2)
Eggs – 2 whole + 4 egg whites
Grated cheese (I used gouda) – 2 tbsps
Milk – 2 tsps
Oil – 1 tsp
Chopped onions – 3-4 tbsps
Roughly chopped spinach – ½ cup
Red chili flakes –  ½ -1 tsp
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and place two ramekins in the oven to warm. Meanwhile, beat together the eggs, milk and 1 tbsp cheese, salt and pepper till they form a frothy mixture. Heat oil in a pan and add the chopped onions. Sauté for a minute and add the spinach. Cook till the leaves wilt (about 2 minutes), add a pinch of salt and pepper and slowly add to the egg mixture. Pull out the ramekins, brush/spray with oil and distribute the egg mixture into both the dishes and top with remaining cheese. Place the ramekins in a baking dish (to avoid any spilling) and bake for 15 minutes. Bon Appétit.
