Vegetable & Feta Frittata

frittata

Frittata are a great easy option for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They are easy to make and you can pretty much add anything into them. Here’s a basic recipe but to make it more fancy you can add chopped grilled sweet potato, olives, tofu, chickpea or chicken, the options are endless!

(Serves about 5-6 or post bariatric surgery 10)

Ingredients

  • ½-1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large Spanish onion, finally sliced
  • 3-4 medium garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1½ cups fresh spinach, finely chopped (can use frozen)
  • 1½ medium carrots, grated (makes 1¼-1½ cups)
  • 1 large zucchini, grated (makes 1¼-1½ cups)
  • ¼ cup finely chopped sundried tomatoes
  • 2 large tomatoes, one sliced into thin slices and the other finely chopped
  • 1 cup mixed fresh herbs, torn (I used ½ cup each of basil and oregano)
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 6 large eggs or 8 medium
  • ½ cup low fat or skim milk
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup grated lite cheese
  • ¼ cup or 50g low fat feta cheese, cut into tiny cubes

Method

Pre-heat oven to 220ºC.

  1. Place a large oven safe frypan on medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the onions, ½ teaspoon salt and stir occasionally toasting until just colouring then add the garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes then add all remaining vegetables except the fresh tomatoes and the herbs. Combine well and stir occasionally.
  2. Cook the remaining vegetables until just soft then add the chopped fresh tomatoes, ½ teaspoon salt and the herbs combining well and cooking for a further 1-2 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile in a bowl, crack the eggs and add the milk, ½ teaspoon salt and the pepper then beat until combined. Stir in the grated cheese and feta and combine gently.
  4. Pour egg mix over the cooked vegetables, poking around a little to evenly disperse the eggs through the vegetables. Place sliced tomatoes evenly over the egg mix.
  5. Continue cooking until base of egg mix is cook then transfer the pan into the oven and bake for about 15-18 minutes or until the top is golden.
  6. Carefully remove from the oven (using oven mitts on the handle of pan) and serve with a side salad or vegetables.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
    of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
