Cheese and Vegetable Frittata
Need a quick weeknight meal? Why not try breakfast for dinner. This Cheese and Vegetable Frittata recipe from Get Cracking takes advantage of eggs as a quick-cooking protein source, and it’s loaded with veggies which keeps things balanced. Add it to your menu this week.
I love this as a beginner recipe because it a basic frittata that you can adjust to your liking. The recipe calls for boiling the vegetables for the frittata, but I suggest sautéing them in a pan for added flavour and to save on dishes. To make this recipe, you’ll start by boiling or sautéing onion and garlic in a large pan until translucent. Once your veggies are cooked, you can add the egg mixture to the pan and cook until eggs have completely set, adding cheese in the last minute of cooking.
This recipe is a great flex-meal to use up any veggies you have in the fridge at the end of the week. Add leftover roasted veggies to save on cooking time, cooked sweet potato, or a handful of spinach to mix things up.
What you’ll need:
4 cups mixed fresh or frozen vegetables
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
