Week 5 Cooking Group

We've been so out if it here. There's been teething babies, sick kids, and family shtuff! We've also been able to have one of my very cool sisters come and visit this week. Shout out to Andrea! So I was relieved when I checked out the Foodie Blog and saw she has been delayed too, with life. Because that's what we are in, the thick of it :)

So here's the recipe. It's from the book First Meals by Annabel Karmel. And guess what, it was a hit! Finally!

Zucchini & Tomato Frittata

2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 Onion, chopped
1 1/4 cup Zucchini, thinly sliced
salt and pepper, to taste
2 Tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
4 Eggs
1 tbsp Milk
2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan

1. Heat the oil in a 9 1/2in nonstick skillet. Add the onion and zucchini, season lightly, and cook for about 15 minutes. Add the tomatoes and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes.
2. Beat the eggs with the milk and pepper and pour over the vegetables. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until the eggs are set underneath. Preheat the broiler to high.
3. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the frittata and cook briefly in the broiler until golden (if necessary, wrap the pan handle with foil to prevent burning). Cut into wedges and serve hot or cold.

You can make different Variations of this recipe. I had some mushrooms on hand, and my kids LOVE mushrooms. Get creative! It's fun and oh so yummy!


Shawn: Like, "we can have this again"
Me: Love, "I could have this all the time!"
Emily: Love, "this is yum!"
Julia: Love, there was nothing left on her plate and she asked for seconds. Good sign!
Becca: Love, but we all know she is pretty easy to please.


See you next week!
