A sweaty training session followed by these tasty Frittata for brunch, Saturday morning can’t get any better.
Weekends were meant only to rest till I realized how much more progress I can make if I spend some extra time in the gym on weekends to practice new exercise or learn new techniques. And the bonus that comes along is a guilt free and a relaxing day ahead. Working out on a weekend isn’t that bad either !! 🙂 And specially when you are in a mood of coming back home and making these delicious Frittata for brunch.
At first, when I heard the dish named ‘Frittata’, I was clueless of what will it be like, it sounded so complicated. Till later, when I realized, ehh !! only the name is complicated, the recipe is so simple. Frittata is an egg based Italian dish similar to omelette. Tossing the veggies in Olive oil, scrambling the eggs in it and putting it all together in the oven. How hard it could be ?
- 50 g, chopped onion
- 30 g, chopped tomato
- 1 cup spinach
- 20 g, red bell pepper and green bell pepper each
- 4 cloves of Garlic
- 6 whole eggs
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- Seasonings – Oregano, thyme, basil, paprika, chilli powder.
- Salt, to taste
- Heat a skillet on the gas and add olive oil to it. Turn the oven on to preheat at 400°F.
- Add garlic cloves to the skillet and roast it till it turns red.
- Add chopped onions, tomato, spinach, bell peppers and saute.
- Whisk the egg and pour them over the saute vegetables in the skillet.
- Spread the egg evenly over the skillet to cover all the egg, add salt to taste.
- Cook for a minute or two.
- Now, remove the skillet from the gas and put it into oven, bake it for 8-10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes, cut a small slit in the center to check, if the egg looks raw bake it for couple of more minutes, if the eggs look set, pull the skillet out of the oven.
- Tada !! Frittata is ready. Cut a piece for yourself, pair it with a side of bread.
Notes : You can store the leftovers in Ziploc and refrigerate it. This makes a perfect grab and go breakfast. Just warm it up in the microwave. If you like it extra cheesy, add Parmesan after you add the egg to the skillet. I have just sprinkled a pinch of it as toppings.
Eating the same old omelette or scrambled egg all the time, I say BORING !!
