Frittata with Zucchini & Goat Cheese (HC) (KD)
1 tsp. salt
1 ½ tblsp. olive oil
2 to 3 small zucchini, sliced 1/8th inch thick
2 tblsp. fresh oregano, chopped
2 tblsp. chopped fresh flat-leafed parsley
4 oz. goat cheese, crumbled
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and ½ tsp. salt, set aside.
In a deep half of a frittata pan on medium, heat olive oil. When heated, add the zucchini and sprinkle with the remaining salt. Saute for 30 seconds, add the oregano and 2 tsp. parsley, and cook for 30 more seconds.
Add the eggs and stir quickly and lightly with a rubber spatula to combine with zucchini. Gently lift the cooked edges to allow the uncooked eggs to flow underneath. Sprinkle the cheese on top; do not stir. Reduce heat to low and cook, without stirring, about 4-5 minutes more.
Meanwhile, in the shallow half of the frittata pan, heat remaining olive oil over on medium heat. Place upside down on top of the deep pan and flip the frittata into the shallow pan. Reduce the heat to low and cook, covered for 3 minutes. Remove the top pan and continue cooking until the eggs are set, about 5 minutes.
Using the spatula, loosen the edges of the frittata and gently slide it onto a plate. Garnish with parsley and serve with arugula salad.
Serves 6 to 8.
