The Ultimate Veggie Vehicle

The Frittata, in all its eggy glory, is the perfect vehicle for any produce you happen upon.  It’s healthy, easy, and tastes freakin’ awesome cold. LuncBah leftovers anyone?

Here’s a recipe for a basic frittata – snag some local eggs, and knock one out with whatever veggies you have on hand. Happy Cooking!

Basic Frittata

6 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup grated parmesan

Salt & Pepper to taste

1 teaspoon butter

1 cup chopped veggies of your choice

Preheat oven to broil.

Beat eggs, parmesan, salt and pepper together in a bowl.  In an oven safe saute pan, melt butter over medium heat.  Saute vegetables for 2 to 3 minutes, or until desired level of tender. Pour egg mixture into pan, and stir. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until bottom sets.  Place pan in oven and broil for 3 to 4 minutes, until fluffy and golden brown.  Remove from oven, flip out of pan, cut, and serve!

  1. Yes! Frittatas don’t get enough love. I made a delicious one this weekend with some leftover leeks.

  2. Great blog! I’d also highly recommend the Mixed Greens Frittata from Moosewood Restaurant New Classics cookbook. Even my kids love it. It’s a good recipe for the spring, when all those tasty greens (chard, spinach, beet greens, etc.) start coming up. I Googled it and found an online copy at this link: http://pitchforkandcrow.com/2010/06/05/this-week-in-your-csa-share-june-5/ Just scroll down – it’s near the bottom of the post.
