Brunch Recipe - Amazing Vegetable Frittata

This is an easy, hassle-free recipe to make as long as you have some vegetables, eggs and cheese at hand. Frittata is an Italian-style flat omelet that's usually baked in a pan. Since I don't have one that can go straight in the oven, I baked mine in a small baking dish. One frittata is more than sufficient for two people and can be prepared in under 20 minutes. And this makes it a perfect brunch recipe for those lazy sundays or after a long party night

Vegetable Frittata 
6 eggs
1/2 cup red belle peppers, chopped
1/2 cup yellow bell peppers, chopped
1/2 cup zucchini, chopped
1 cup spring onions, copped
1 green chilly, finely chopped
1 tomato, sliced
Handful pitted black olives, sliced
Salt to taste
Grounded pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cubes of processed cheese
Fresh basil leaves
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C
  • Saute the vegetables for a minute or so and season with salt and pepper

  • Spread the vegetables into an even layer on the bottom of the baking dish
  • Beat eggs and add salt and pepper to taste. Pour the beaten eggs over the vegetables
  • Cut one cube cheese into small chunks and sprinkle to form pockets of cheese
  • Put sliced tomatoes, basil leaves on top and grate the remaining cheese

  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Allow to rest in the oven for another 5 minutes or so
  • Decorate with olives and basil leaves
This recipe is very versatile and you can consider the following vegetables as well, spinach, mushrooms, boiled potato, broccoli, paneer (cottage cheese) and if you like meat then you can add sausages, bacon or small nugget size chicken.
