Zucchini Frittata

 

zucchini frittata recipe

I really love eggie breakfast and frittata would always be a winner in my book especially on days I want to bulk up my meals with vegetables. Zucchini frittata has been making an appearance on my table for a while now. I once made a reference in one of my posts in the past that zucchini is the vegan and vegetarian version of snail (covering face)

Zucchini is also called courgette and it is easily found in most grocery stores and it’s affordable too. Frittata is very easy to make and you can make it with any vegetable you have at hand. I have made this frittata without milk or with less cheese. I try to make my meals healthy as much as I can these days (snapback has not been easy as I thought) in fact I could count the strands of grated cheddar cheese used for this frittata. Feel free to make it your own but don’t omit this vital step when making your frittata. In the case of this recipe, I used zucchini (obviously) and tomatoes, I squeezed out enough water as I could from the zucchini and de-seeded the tomatoes. You want frittata and not scrambled egg.

A plus for this recipe is that it can be eaten any time of the day and keeps well in the fridge too. What’s not to love
