Another big favourite in our household. You will love this recipe too, it's a great way to get "rid" of vegetables cooked the previous day. Waste not - want not!
Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crustless quiche or scrambled eggs, enriched with additional ingredients such as meats, cheeses, or vegetables. The word frittata is Italian and roughly translates to “fried”.
Frittatas are simply cooked up vegetables, and I think they taste best wen you may them with cooked vegetables from the previous day or two. You can use a wide variety of cooked vegetables to make a whole range of different kinds of frittatas.
My favourite vegetables for these kinds of dishes would have to include sweet corn, sweet potato, pumpkin, peas, potato, but also spinach and lots of large and freshly picked fresh basil leaves.
Add a generous amount of grated black pepper and a a little grated nutmeg as well to this dish just before baking.
I loved making this recipe! The colours of the Frittata are so glorious.
It would be perfect as a picnic food. I’m going to be taking this along to the next shared food school function.
