Yesterday, I went to the co-op to get ingredients for a Thai curry. Silly me, I forgot that the only local, grass-fed beef you can get there is frozen, and it wouldn’t be defrosted in time for dinner! So instead, I decided to try my hand at a frittata. The taste was spot-on, but it was a little thinner than I think a frittata should be. I’d make it again, but either in a smaller pan or with more eggs!

Frittata

Zucchini Herb Frittata

1 T. canola oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 zucchini, diced

1 c. chopped fresh herbs of your choice (I used basil, sage, and cilantro)

5 eggs

1 T. milk

1/4 c. shredded cheddar (optional)

Frittata

Whisk the eggs and milk in a large bowl until light and fluffy.

In a cast-iron pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and zucchini and saute until soft.

Add the herbs and stir for 1 minute. Pour the eggs into the pan. Cover and decrease the heat to low, letting it cook until the eggs have set, about 6-9 minutes.

Remove the lid and add the cheese, if desired. Slice and serve!

SAVVY TIP: When you add the eggs, pour them all around the edges of the pan. If you pour them directly into the middle, the thickness and cooking won’t be even!

    Yum, that frittata looks great! A smaller pan probably would have helped, but another trick is to mix a little baking soda in with the eggs It helps it puff up (and makes the frittata nice and fluffy/airy).

    We can only find frozen grass fed beef here too. So annoying!

    Have to admit, I’m most proud of you for getting 75% of the thank-you’s done! Chris and I tackled ours as soon as we could but I have friends who have gotten married and not gotten around to thank-you notes until a year later just because they were dreading them so much :-P.
