Frittatas are an ideal way to use up various ingredients and leftovers in your fridge. This helps minimize food waste, which is key to reducing your diet’s environmental impact. This frittata works perfectly with slightly wilted spinach, mixed bits of cheese and those random mushrooms languishing at the bottom of your crisper.
