Italian Veggie and Herb Frittata

A healthier version with all fresh veggies, some from our garden. We picked our first fresh peppers, plum tomatoes and fresh basil, the rest of the ingredients porcini mushrooms, zucchini and egg whites some herbs and spice blends made this a light delight~.

plum tomatoes chopped
1 clove minced garlic or onion or both
1 zucchini grated
1/2 cup porcini mushrooms
1 italianelle pepper, cleaned seeded,  sliced julienne style (long strips)
grated long strands of grating cheese or mozzarella
4 egg whites lightly beaten
salt, pepper to taste
a few shakes of parsley
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh basil
extra virgin olive oil

In a heavy large fry pan add a tablespoon of olive oil, swirling in the pan to coat evenly. Add the grated zucchini, mushrooms, tomatoes,  peppers, garlic and stir fry style for around 3 minutes. Add egg whites on top of veggie mixture sprinkling with all herbs and spices evenly. Flip once. Cook till brown. Top with grating cheese and sliced tomato.

  4. Claudia, your fritata is making me hungry. You have no idea how much do I love gardening. Too bad, I don't live in a place where has extra land for me to do so. Hope you're enjoying your day ahead, dear.
    Blessings,
