A simple, quick, versatile dish with summery veg & herbs. This is fabulous served with my Roasted Potato & Herby Tomato Salad. 

 

A Frittata, at its essence, is an open-faced omelette; it is much easier to cook with lots of vegetables than an omelette.

Tips + Suggestions

SWAP SWISS CHARD for spinach, kale, chenopodium – good king henry, Asian greens, dandelion greens,

 

ADD garlic, potato, cooked rice or quinoa, green pepper.

 

HERBS use chives, garlic chives, basil, parsley, dill, cilantro, a small amount of thyme, marjoram.

 

DAIRY-FREE – skip feta or swap it for a plant-based cheese.

 

EGGS I portion 2 eggs per serving and use up to 8 eggs per frittata – the more eggs, the bigger the skillet!  BUY pasture-raised eggs and support your local farmer if you can!
