Best frittata ever!
Vegetable Goat Cheese Frittata
2 whole eggs
4 egg whites
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
salt & pepper
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 small sweet potato, cubed & steamed
1 cup summer squash, chopped
1 cup broccoli, chopped
1/4 cup water
2 oz goat cheese
1. Whisk eggs and egg whites with parmesan cheese, salt & pepper. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet on high, then add the sweet potato and a little S&P, and cook until they get a little color. (Note: I just chopped up my sweet potato and microwaved it for two minutes in a gladware container with a little water.)
Add the squash, broccoli and water into the skillet and place a lid on top,
then steam for 2 minutes, or until the squash and broccoli still have a little bite.
3. Add the egg mixture to the skillet and spread it out. Run a spatula around the outside edges every so often so the eggs don’t stick.
4. When the bottom has set, and the top is still slightly runny, add the goat cheese and place the skillet under the broiler for 3-4 minutes, or until the top is cooked.
Look at the color in here! Doesn’t it just scream, fresh! Summer! EAT ME!
I don’t know what it was about this particular frittata – but something about the combination of sweet potato, chewy parm and melty goat’s cheese all came together in a trifecta of awesomeness!
I love how rustic it came out too!
Goat’s cheese may have just found it’s new purpose in life. And that is, to melt on top of my frittatas. It’s destiny, I’m telling you. :D
I’ve saved the best for last, which is – you can eat HALF of this ENTIRE pan for 365 calories. That’s it! Just 365 measly calories!!!!
I’m going back for my other two slices as soon as I’m done telling you about them. ;)
Couple of things from this morning’s post:
1. Diet Snapple Peach Ice Tea To-Go Packet (whew!!!) was outstanding…in every way. I drank mine in mere minutes! Thanks for all the recs on the other good kinds too – I’ll be checking them out for sure. :)
2. Glad to know that I’m not the only friendly neighborhood jogger who has been terrorized by dogs, both large & small, nipping at their heels. I don’t know if this will work for everyone, but I finally looked over my shoulder and yelled NO! as I trying to run away. It was actually preeetty hilarious, because as soon as I yelled, he/she/it stopped straight in their tracks and looked at me like – “Excuuuuuuuse me?! YOU’RE going to tell me no?!” as if they couldn’t believe I had yelled at them. Hilarious and effective. Take that little pup.
I love dogs, I swear. Just not ones who’s owners let them terrorize people!
Well, it’s a particularly loooovely evening, so I may try and convince Ben to walk down to my parent’s house with me to snag a little dessert! Parent’s always have something delicious in the house, don’t they? Usually that trend starts AFTER all the kids leave. Why is that?! ;)
Have a great rest of your day!
