Frittata is easy and versatile to make, and tastes delicious. Had some zucchini and cherry tomato on hand, also having fresh mint and basil leaves growing in the garden. Needless to say, it came out super delicious.

Ingredients

4 teaspoons olive oil, extra-virgin
divided
1 cup zucchini
1 small
½ cup onions
chopped
½ cup cherry tomatoes
halved
¼ cup mint leaves
freshly slivered
*
¼ cup basil
freshly slivered
*
¼ teaspoon salt
divided
black pepper
freshly ground to taste
*
4 large eggs
2 ounces goat (chevre) cheese
crumbled, 1/3 cup

Directions

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Add zucchini and onion; cook, stirring often, for 1 minute.

Cover and reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is tender, but not mushy, 3 to 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes, mint, basil, ⅛ teaspoon salt and a grinding of pepper; increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring, until the moisture has evaporated, 30 to 60 seconds.

Whisk eggs, the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt and a grinding of pepper in a large bowl until blended.

Add the zucchini mixture and cheese; stir to combine.

Preheat the broiler.

Wipe out the pan and brush it with the remaining 2 teaspoons oil; place over medium-low heat.

Add the frittata mixture and cook, without stirring, until the bottom is light golden, 2 to 4 minutes.

As it cooks, lift the edges and tilt the pan so uncooked egg will flow to the edges.

Place the pan under the broiler and broil until the frittata is set and the top is golden, 1½ to 1½ minutes.

Loosen the edges and slide onto a plate.

Cut into wedges and serve.
