Really need to get back on the healthy food train. Too many fries, mexican food, brownies, and popcorn these past few days *facepalm*.
Honestly, when it gets hot out I just become the laziest cook on the planet AKA I don't cook. For myself at least. Dan was out of town and it was definitely Mexican food delivery for dinner. Anyway, time to get back on track! Let's start with this greek vegetable frittata.
It's a one pan breakfast miracle: vegetarian, gluten free, easy clean up, and on the healthier side??
Even though I've shared a couple frittatas on the blog before, this time around I wanted to try a greek style twist. A little feta cheese, spinach, tomatoes, red onion, and a pinch of fresh oregano is all you need!
I did add some diced up zucchini for substance and extra nutrients. Not particularly a Greek staple but, in my opinion, necessary.
My favorite things about the frittata:
First, I've said it before and I'll say it again...ONE POT! Cook it all in the skillet aaaaand that's it. So easy and simple!
Second, it's kind of a kitchen sink deal, just like a quiche but gluten free 😎. Throw in any extra veggies or herbs you have lying around, or even some cheese!
In short, lets get back on the healthy train with a greek vegetable frittata. Yes? Yes pleasekthanks. Recipe below!Print
