It's Favorite Ingredients Friday (Healthy Edition) from Overwhelmed With Joy. In the summer we usually eat foods that are a lot lighter. Since we belong to the CSA our menus also incorporate lots of fresh veggies, yum. One of my absolute favorites is a frittata. Here's the recipe:
In a large cast-iron or other heatproof pan lightly grease and heat.
In a separate pan lightly sautee thinly sliced onions and minced garlic
In a container mix together:
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 t. mustard beaten into eggs
pinch of salt
generous pinch of herbs de provence
pour egg mixture into pan.
thinly sliced fresh veg
favorites are asparagus, spinach, tomato, summer squash, combinations of the above
top with grated cheese
Turn oven on to broil
Cook over medium heat until bottom of eggs are firm
remove pan from stovetop and place in oven under broiler until top is firm (usually 2-3 minutes)
Remove from oven, slice into quarters and serve.
Delicious when paired with a fresh spinach salad and a hearty whole grain bread.
