The original recipe from Whole Foods can be found here.
This was one of the demo recipes that Jill and I saw on Monday. Jill made it that very night and raved about it so I knew I needed to make it to. I had this last night for dinner. Yum. I also had a crazy cool dessert but I will share that later. I’ll give you a hint – it has something to do with chocolate.
Goat Cheese Zucchini Onion Red Pepper Frittata
- 3 whole eggs
- oregano, salt & pepper, to taste
- 2-3 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 small zucchini, sliced thinly (I cut it in half and did half-moon shapes)
- 1/2 small red onion
- 1/2 medium red pepper, sliced up
- 1/4 cup goat cheese
- a few scallions, sliced
- Beat the eggs together with the oregano, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a metal pan over high heat. Add the zucchini, onion, and red pepper. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium.
- Add the eggs (do not mix it up). Cook it for another 3-4 minutes, or until the eggs start to firm up.
- Turn the broiler on high. Sprinkle goat cheese and scallions on the frittata and put it under the broiler (in the pan – make sure you don’t use one with a plastic handle) for another 2-4 minutes, or until it starts to brown.
- Serve plain, with a salad, or of course organic ketchup (click for my recipe).
I had half of this guy for part of my dinner and Bobby had the other half when he got home from band practice. Silly boy decides to tell me now that he doesn’t like goat cheese. What is up with that? I love goat cheese. You could have this for leftovers and I think it would also make a wonderful breakfast.
What is your favorite cheese? I think mine might be raw blue cheese, but this goat cheese is a close second.
