Frittatas can be hit or miss in my opinion. Such a healthy meal and a simple way to prepare eggs, but frittatas need to be flavoured generously and creatively to breathe life into otherwise boring old milk and eggs.
This recipe uses loads of fresh and dried herbs and seeds to add flavour and texture to this dish. Perfect if you are avoiding meat but still want a high protein meal.
Experiment with whatever fresh herbs and veges are in season around you and if you’re into cheese, it would certainly have a home in and/or on this frittata. I’ve loaded mine with zucchinis, a great source of potassium and good for lowering blood pressure, as well as increasing immunity.
What you need:
- 12 organic free range eggs
- 1 cup raw milk
- 5 small zucchinis (grated)
- 2 tablespoon organic basil pesto
- Handful fresh sage leaves
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 2 teaspoons dried Italian herbs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Black pepper to taste
What you do:
Oven to 180 degrees. Whisk milk and eggs together until light and creamy. Mix in all other ingredients and sprinkle some sunflower seeds and oregano. leaves on top. Bake for an hour, or just until centre springs back when touched.
