Need a healthy and simple weeknight meal? Try making a frittata. This can be a meal in itself or a nice addition to a fresh salad. It can be eaten hot, warm or room temperature.
A frittata may be described as an open-faced Italian omelet. Like an omelet, it consists of eggs cooked in butter with a variety of fillings. The texture is firm and set, although never to the point of being stiff and dry.
Do you have an overstocked produce drawer with a questionable life expectancy? You can create your own flavor of a frittata. Leftover vegetables always work well in a frittata. It’s a good way to use up vegetables (that you know would never get eaten otherwise) and get a second meal out of your first time efforts. Yes, frittatas can be made extra simple with eggs and just cheese. But by adding vegetables it’s a nice way to incorporate more veggies into your diet, which I’m sure a good chunk of us need to do.
