Method

Frittata with Quinoa and Vegetables 11 Steps

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400°F.

  • Step 2

    Heat medium sized pan on medium-high heat. Add in the olive oil and half of the butter, swirl the pan until the butter melts and begins to bubble lightly.

  • Step 3

    Add in the sliced onions and cook until softened and lightly browned, approximately 4-6 minutes, stirring regularly.

  • Step 4

    Once the onions have taken on a light golden color add in the sliced zucchini and cook for another 2 minutes until the zucchini has taken on some golden color as well, add in the minced garlic and cook for another 1 minute. Season with fresh cracked black pepper and half of the salt, transfer to a plate and cool for approximately 5-10 minutes.

  • Step 5

    While the vegetable mixture is cooling, prepare your egg base. In a mixing bowl crack all of the eggs and whisk until even.

  • Step 6

    Add in the remaining saltcooked quinoa as well as the cooled onion and zucchini mixture, whisk all together.

  • Step 7

    Preheat a 10" inch ovenproof nonstick skillet on medium-high heat, add in the remaining butter and swirl until the bottom of the pan is coated.

  • Step 8

    Gently pour in the egg-quinoa-vegetable mixture. Top the frittata mix with the chopped spinach, halved grape tomatoes and crumbled feta being sure to spread all ingredients as best as possible over the top surface.

  • Step 9

    Transfer entire pan to the preheated oven and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes until the centre of the frittata is set and the edges are golden brown.

  • Step 10

    Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes in the pan before transferring to a serving plate.

  • Step 11

    Cut into 6-8 wedges and serve with your favourite pepperoncini or on the side of your favourite salad.
