Quick – someone get me a cold compress. I’ve got a fever!
With temperatures still hovering around the freezing point over much of the country, many are anxiously awaiting the day they can ditch their winter jackets in favor of t-shirts and warm, Spring sunshine.
As the seasons change, so does my appetite. Hearty stews, casseroles and soups fall to the wayside, in favor of lighter, simpler fare like produce-packed salads, meat seared on the grill and my quick & easy Two-Cheese Vegetable Frittata.
Fluffy eggs are whisked with salty parmesan cheese then cooked up with steamed sweet potatoes, broccoli and squash. Tangy goat cheese dots the top of this one-pan meal, which is quickly finished under the broiler.
Two-Cheese Vegetable Frittata
2 whole eggs
4 egg whites
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 small sweet potato, cubed
1/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon water, divided
1 cup summer squash, chopped
1 cup broccoli, chopped
2 oz goat cheese
1. Whisk together eggs, egg whites, green onions, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat and pre-heat your oven’s broiler. Meanwhile, microwave sweet potato cubes and 1 Tablespoon water in a microwave-safe container with a loose-fitting lid until potatoes become tender, about 2-3 minutes.
3. Drain any remaining liquid from the sweet potatoes and add them into the hot skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté potatoes until they begin to brown, then add in squash, broccoli and remaining water. Place a lid on the skillet, turn the heat down to medium, and steam vegetables for 2 minutes, or until tender.
4. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet with the vegetables and quickly stir to mix all the ingredients together. Flatten with a spatula and continue to cook until the bottom and sides of the frittata are set, occasionally running your spatula around the outside of the frittata to prevent sticking.
5. Remove the skillet from the heat, dot goat cheese on top, and place it under the broiler for 3-4 minutes, or until the top is cooked.
6. Slice and serve in wedges.
Enjoy hot or cold!
