Vegetable Frittata : LCHF


This LCHF Vegetable Frittata is a Julia McPhee recipe, and is a great addition to any low carb recipe collection. It's one that the family can enjoy, or why not keep it to the 'two of you' like Eddie and I so often do! If there are any leftovers - just keep them for tomorrow's lunch! 

Ingredients: 
Serves Four (but can easily be amended to suit)
1 cup Broccoli floweret's and stalk
1 cup Cauliflower floweret's and stalk
1 Zucchini (courgette) sliced into 2 cm slices
½ cup Mushrooms sliced (not too thinly)
1 small onion sliced into large pieces (quartered)
1 tbsp. Butter
1 cup Cream
4 Eggs
1 tbsp. Mustard, wholegrain (optional)
Salt and pepper
¼ cup Cheese, grated (cheddar works well)

Instructions: 

Steam (or boil) broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini (courgette) until just cooked but still very firm.
Drain and cool slightly. 
Heat butter in a small pan and add mushrooms and onion until both have softened slightly.
Place all cooked vegetables in a baking dish (20-30 cm). 
Beat eggs, cream and mustard, add salt and pepper and pour over the vegetables.
Top with grated cheese.
Bake at 180º C (350º F / Gas Mark 4) for around 30 minutes or until the dish is firm and browned on top.

So much goodness in this. It looks delicious!

Neither. I love love scrambled eggs. I also love vegetables. Polluting my eggs seems blasphemous. You asked. Now, I think I will go scramble eggs for breakfast.

It is indeed a great dish!. I make something similar with low fat cheese, and without the butter and the cream (calories, calories..).

Another dish I will make!

I do love frittata and have it often. I grill rather than bake mine though.
