Choose Your Vegetables: What Works Well in a Frittata?
Any vegetable that you like! You can go with a simple mix of broccoli, mushrooms, and onions, or get a little more creative with zucchini, peppers, and tomatoes.
Chop and Prep Your Veggies.
Here’s a pro tip: always have a few chopped vegetables in your fridge, so you can whip up a frittata in a pinch. Just like that, you’ll have a delicious, healthy meal that’ll please even the pickiest of eaters.
Whisk the Eggs.
Rule of thumb: the more eggs in your frittata, the fluffier it’ll be. But don’t worry – even if you go a little overboard and end up with a dozen eggs, your frittata will still come out fantastically. Just whisk them all together until they’re nice and frothy.
Adding a few tablespoons of milk or cream also helps to make your frittata fluffy, but this is completely optional. Some folks also like to add in a pinch of salt and pepper to give their frittata a bit of extra flavour.
Cook the Veggies Before Adding the Egg Mixture.
If you want to make a vegetable frittata that’s as tasty as it is nutritious, then you’ll want to cook your veggies before adding the egg mixture. This will ensure that your frittata has the perfect texture and flavour.
Add the Egg Mixture and Cook Until Set.
Step 5: Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cheese, then cook until the eggs are set. This will take about 10 minutes.
You might be wondering, “What’s the best way to cook my frittata?” The answer: in a hot, oven-safe skillet on medium-high heat. And don’t forget to rub some olive oil or butter around the pan before adding the mixture – this will help ensure that your frittata doesn’t stick.
Now, it's time to sit back and relax.
