Spinach & Ricotta Pots

This recipe is an oldie but every time I post a picture on my Instagram everyone is asking for the recipe - so here it is. Packed full of protein from the eggs and ricotta and healthy fats from the eggs and chia seeds plus always some added greens - you can’t go wrong with this simple meal. Note: the pots may boil over a bit so add some baking paper underneath the tray if you wish.
