Vegetable Frittata

Frittatas are so easy and healthy! This Vegetable Frittata Recipe incorporates any leftover veggies and cheese, then bake in a cast iron skillet with dozen eggs. That's it, my friends!

Frittata is an Italian dish that is meant to incorporate any leftover vegetables, pasta, cheese etc. and then baked with eggs. Frittata doesn’t mean you go shopping for its ingredients (maybe except the eggs) but rather clean out the fridge and freezer. Going bad veggies, frozen cheese leftovers, going bad cheese in the fridge, too many gifted eggs. Got it?

My vegetable frittata recipe includes cooked sweet potato, broccoli, pepper and snap peas. Flavour is boosted with Parmesan cheese, onion, garlic and red pepper flakes. A dozen eggs seals the deal. 20 minutes later healthy vegetable frittata stands tall and proud at our lunch table. Packed with fiber, protein and a bit of complex carbs. When you are a food blogger, you eat what you cook when you make it.
