Vegetable Fritata

So today I did not know what to do for lunch. I had lots of vegetables that need it to be used so somehow I figured a vegetable fritata would be perfect. I have not made one in a long time. It takes not longer than 20 minutes, it is versatile, since you can add any vegetables you may like and it feeds a few people :-)

You can make this and serve it as an appetizer by cutting it into small pieces as well, just another though.



Vegetable Fritata

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 6 servings


1 red onion, sliced
2 - 3 cups mushrooms
2 medium red peppers, sliced
3 - 4 tablespoons olive oil
6 eggs, organic
1/4 cup egg beaters, You can use all whole eggs if you prefer, just add a couple more eggs
2 - 3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese
Salt to taste



Heat oil in a skillet and saute the peppers, onions and mushrooms for about 5- 7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and egg beaters.

Add the beaten egg and pour over the vegetables. (the mushrooms tend to give off some water so before I add the egg mixture and pour some of that liquid out). Turn the stove to the lowest setting. Let the egg just set, about 8 - 10 minutes. Add cheese over the top and put under the broil for about 3 - 5 minutes until egg is set and cheese is melted.

Cut in slices and serve with some salad.
