    Amy Riolo: Hi! I'm Amy Riolo with Harris Teeter. This simple and satisfying Spinach Asian Mushroom and Caramelized Onion Frittata is the perfect diabetes friendly meal for any time of day. The first thing I'm going to do is heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in my pan. I have got this over medium high heat. As soon as our oil is hot we can add a chopped onion. We want to caramelize our onions n this. Caramelizing onion bring out their natural sugar. So now onions have finished caramelizing and I've got a nice golden hue to them we can go ahead and add in other ingredients. I've got 3 garlic cloves that I've chopped, 2 cups of fresh baby spinach. Then we'll add in 4 ounces of Asian mushrooms. I'll just stir these altogether to make sure that the onions and olive are incorporated and let our spinach cook. I'm going to go ahead and mix together my eggs. So I've got 6 eggs. Then I add a teaspoon of salt and some freshly cracked black pepper. I am just going to whisk these together. You can see our mushrooms have cooked and the spinach has completely cooked through. So now it's time to add in our eggs. We will let this cook for about 3-4 minutes or just until the frittata starts to set and then the minute it's set up around the sides we will finish it off in the broiler. So now our frittata has completely set up. You can see around the sides here the edges are all set and we just have a little bit of liquid on the top portion. So now we're going to transfer this broiler. We can broil this for about 1-2 minutes just until the top is completely cooked through. So now we can check on our frittata and see how it's cooking. We can see the top doesn't move. It's completely set. It means it's ready to eat. There we have our Spinach Asian Mushroom and Caramelized Onion Frittata. The perfect diabetes-friendly meal the whole family will love. Enjoy!
