Vegetable Frittata is a delicious and easy recipe perfect for breakfast right through to dinner. It is healthy, vegetarian, super tasty, and just ideal for feeding a hungry gathering.

Frittata is an egg-based recipe of Italian origin. Simply saying, it is a kind of fancier omelet or a crustless quiche that can be backed in the oven.

Cheese frittata with vegetables works as a real escape for me. Whenever my inspiration left me, and I have some vegetable leftovers in the fridge – I make a frittata. The crunchiness of the vegetable pairs just perfectly with the fluffiness of the eggs. Top everything with some cheese, and you will get a real hearty dish.

Vegetable frittata In my family, eggs are one of the frequently used ingredients in many recipes. That is why I prefer to buy them always fresh from our local fermes market. We like eggs very much, and they save me in many situations, especially when I want to prepare something fast, tasty, and healthy. My kids can eat all day long French Toast or fluffy Egg Muffins.

There are two cooking methods for frittata: started on the stove and finished in the oven, or cooked entirely on the stove (covered with a lid). Because I felt so lazy today, I didn’t turn on my oven, and I decided to prepare a frittata on the stove.

I preferred the vegetarian version, and I didn’t feel the need to add any meat. It is a sufficiently satisfying and tasty dish and does not need anything else.

Actually, you can use any ingredients you want, but keep in mind that some should be pre-cooked, such as meat or vegetables with high water content. An excellent option to fasten even more the cooking process is a frozen vegetable mix. Honestly, the possibilities are endless.

Today I was craving a colorful frittata with bell pepper, mushrooms, and peas. You can find these ingredients in most grocery stores.

Send first to the skillet mushroom and cook until they release all their liquid. Once the extra liquid evaporated, add chopped bell peppers and pears. Season with salt, pepper, and paprika. Sauteeing first vegetables also ensure that they will thoroughly cook.

Meanwhile, in a separate mixing bowl, crack the eggs. Add heavy cream ( or any dairy of your choice), a pinch of salt, and beat just until the yolks and whites are blended.

Vegetable frittata Once the vegetables soften, whisk the egg mixture once more and pour it over the vegetables. Using a spatula, stir briefly to distribute the egg mixture evenly across the skillet. Sprinkle grated cheese on top of the frittata. Close the lid, lower the heat and let frittata cook for about 10-13 minutes, until fully cooked in the middle.
