SMOKED SALMON, MUSHROOM & SPINACH FRITTATA

SMOKED SALMON, MUSHROOM & SPINACH FRITTATA

This is the kind of dish I can eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  It’s quick, easy, and well-balanced, not to mention super tasty and satisfying. I love the combination of smoked salmon, mushrooms, greens, and creamy vegan cheese. Sometimes I cut it up and serve it on homemade paleo bagels — cream cheese & lox frittata sandwiches are my jam!
