The frittata recipe for this spectacularly, healthy and delicious Green And Lean Frittata you see below is at the end of this post, so don’t forget to read all the way to the end 🙂
Frittata…what a word!
When I hear this word I imagine a large male Italian opera singer staring up to a balcony with his damsel (a very attractive, buxom Italian lady) looking lovingly down at him.
With hand on his heart, he breathes in deeply, chest swelling with the large intake of air, and booms in his deep tenor voice, “Frit-ta-ta.”
(Dum, dum dum – the orchestra sounds)
“Frit-ta-ta,” he booms again.
(Orchestra – dum, dum, dum)
“Frit-ta-ta, Frit-ta-ta, Frit-taaaaaa-taaaaa.”
(Orchestra – dum, dum, dum, boom, boom, dum, dum, dum – boooooommm, boooooommm)
Frittata is obviously the love of his life (a.k.a. the buxom damsel on the balcony) and he’s pledging his love for her before he rides off on his donkey to do battle in a distant war.
Is this the picture you get in your head when you hear the word frittata? I’m sure it is!
But what really is, frittata?
Well, according to Bob the Butcher (Do you know Bob? He’s a legend! Best lamb chops this side of Darwin), oh and according to Wikipedia too:
“Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crustless quiche, enriched with additional ingredients such as meats, cheeses, vegetables or pasta. The word frittata is Italian and roughly translates to fried.”
The wonderful thing about Frittata is that you can pack it full of any ingredients you like. I find it’s a marvellous way to use up vegetables that are about to go off in your crisper and a spectacular way to cram a bucket-load of vegetables into your diet.
Plus, if you’re trying to feed fussy kids, you can hide vegetables in frittata that they wouldn’t normally eat, hooray!
I love to bake up a huge quantity of frittata on a Sunday night and then I have pre-made brekkie, lunch or snacks for the week ready to go.
Frittata is soooooooo much more than an Italian damsel (or should we say a Maori damsel) in distress! As you’ll learn from reading this book, it’s nutritious, it’s convenient, it’s easy to make and it’s super delicious.
How many eggs does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: None, eggs don’t have hands.
