Tomato and Zucchini Frittata

Garden tomatoes, summer zucchini, and Asiago cheese make a scrumptious frittata that highlights the end of summer’s bounty.

Summer tomatoes are abundant and delicious right now – my garden is overflowing with them! I’ve been enjoying them in salads[1] and quick garden sauces[2], over grilled flank steak[3], and in my egg sandwiches[4]. But today I wanted to make something different, using up some zucchini that I bought at the farmer’s market this weekend and I came up with this delicious frittata.

What I love about frittatas is that you can enjoy them for any meal and they are so inexpensive to make. Today’s leftovers from lunch are going to be tomorrow’s breakfast. Perfect for meatless mondays, gluten free, clean eating and low carb diets.

Savory Zucchini Asiago Tomato Scones

Light and biscuit-like savory scones made with a blend of whole wheat and white flour, shredded zucchini, sun dried tomato, Asiago cheese and fresh rosemary. Almost smells like pizza when it comes out of the oven!

I was at the farmer’s market in Long Beach this past weekend and bought lots of zucchini and tomatoes. I also came across a stand selling savory scones, a concept I fell in love with. Rather than my usual scones that I make with fruit, these are made with seasonal summer ingredients – perfect for brunch, lunch or with dinner. Today I had a scone for lunch with a beautiful heirloom tomato salad[1] from the tomatoes I bought over the weekend. I’m thinking the leftovers would be perfect for dinner tonight with my homemade tomato bisque [2]using the rest of the tomatoes I have.

Scones are usually made with double the amount of butter, to lighten them I have been having great success replacing butter with whipped butter in my baked recipes which is a lighter since it’s whipped. I also use half the amount of butter used in traditional scones, and adding the zucchini really helps give the scones lots of moisture. The scones come out tender and soft with lots of wonderful flavor.

Calories: 141.5 • Fat: 5 g • Carb: 18.5 g • Fiber: 2 g • Protein: 6 g • Sugar: 2.5 g
Sodium: 380 mg • Cholest: 27 mg


  • 3/4 cup cold buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (recommend: King Arthur)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (recommend: King Arthur)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup chilled whipped butter (must be cold), cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini, squeezed of all moisture
  • 2.5 oz Asiago cheese, shredded
  • 2.75 oz (just under 2/3 cup) sun dried tomatoes, minced
  • 1-1/2 tbsp rosemary, chopped
  • cooking spray
  • 1 large egg white, beaten


Preheat the oven to 375°F. Combine the buttermilk and egg in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray.

Combine the flours with the baking powder and salt, in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Squeeze all the excess moisture from the zucchini with a paper towel, you should wind up with 1 cup after it’s all squeezed. In a bowl combine the zucchini, sun dried tomatoes, cheese and rosemary.

Cut in the chilled butter with a pastry blender, or you could use 2 knives, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gently fold in the cheese, zucchini, sun dried tomatoes and rosemary. Add milk mixture, stirring just until moist, without overworking the dough.

Place dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly four times with floured hands. Form dough into an 10-inch circle onto the baking sheet, about 3/4″ thick, you may need to sprinkle a little more flour on top if it’s too sticky. Using a knife, cut dough into 12 wedges all the way through.

Brush egg white over dough. Bake until golden, about 20 – 22 minutes, depending on your oven. Serve warm.

Easy Crust-less Spinach and Feta Pie

In honor of National Pi Day, a day in history that celebrates the ratio of a circle’s
circumference to its diameter (3.14), I can’t think of a better way to celebrate such an ironic-named holiday than to share a slice of this simply delicious, savory spinach pie recipe from the archives.

A simple Greek inspired pie combining savory flavors such as spinach, feta, Asiago cheese, dill and scallions. Perfect to take to a potluck!

Served with a salad, you can turn this into a main dish, or cut it into smaller wedges to serve as an appetizer. If you use full fat feta cheese, the fat only increases by 1 gram, and the points increase to 4 per serving. Enjoy this warm or at room temperature.
