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.

Sodium: 204 mg • Cholest: 186 mg

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1-1/2 cups (7 oz) zucchini, diced into matchsticks
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup Asiago cheese, grated
  • salt and fresh pepper
  • 2 medium (about 8 oz) vine ripe tomatoes, cored and thinly sliced crosswise

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Heat oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Stir in onion and cook until slightly golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add zucchini, increase heat to medium-high, season with salt and pepper and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the moisture dries up, stirring occasionally.

In a medium bowl whisk eggs, egg whites, Asiago, salt and pepper.

Pour the eggs into the skillet making sure they cover all the vegetables. Arrange tomatoes in an overlapping pattern on top and season with salt and pepper. When the edges begin to set (about 2 minutes) move skillet to oven. Cook about 16 to 18 minutes, or until frittata is completely cooked. Serve warm, cut into 4 pieces.

Skinny Frozen Hot Chocolate

A dreamy, icy blend of chocolatey goodness, without the guilt! Today’s recipe is a guest post from my dear friend Brandi. She’s blogs over at BranAppetit[1], please welcome her!

Hi guys! This is Brandi from BranAppetit[2], and I’m so happy to be here, sharing a recipe with you.

If you’re anything like me, you have families that love to eat and drink super high calorie foods during the holidays. I’m guessing it’s like this for everyone, really, but it doesn’t have to be! I definitely indulge in some foods that I only get during the holiday season like my mom’s fudge pie or my Mammaw’s ham gravy, but there are some easy ways to make great holiday treats a little more figure friendly.

Take this frozen hot chocolate.

A normal recipe would set you back hundreds of calories, but you can slim this down easily by swapping in skim milk and adding a touch of rich unsweetened cocoa powder for even more intense chocolate flavor.

My favorite way to have this is to add in a drop or two of peppermint or coconut extract, but it’s just as delicious without it, too. And with the warm December we’ve been having in Virginia, a frozen hot chocolate has been my go-to treat this year.

Hope you all have a great holiday season!
