Monday night on Facebook, I posted a picture of dinner: The Loaded Gun Veggie Frittata! Apparently some people wanted the recipe! SO happy to hand it over!
It is simple, flavorful and FULL of veggies!
Beat together 4 eggs, 1/2 Cup water
1T. olive oil, 1.5 C. chopped broccoli, 1C. mushrooms, 1/2 C. chopped zucchini, 1/2 T. parsley, 1/2 T. Sesame seeds.
1/4 C. shredded mexican cheese, 1/4 C. black olives , red OR Cayenne pepper to taste
Optional: parmesan cheese, salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425
Saute until broccoli is bright green and mushrooms are moist.
Pour egg mixture evenly over pan of veggies and cook on Medium-low running a spoon over the edge of the pan.
When most, or 3/4 of the egg mixture is cooked through drop in black olives, mexican cheese and put in preheated oven for 7-10 min until the mixture is cooked through. Pull the frittata out, sprinkle red or cayenne pepper over the top lightly and shred parmesan cheese over the whole thing!
I used one of THREE mini cheese samples I picked up at the co-op. Each was less than a dollar and I get to try three new kinds of cheeses! It's my spice of life this week.
The Sarvecchio Parmsan is a local, semi-hard, nutty parmesan. It is an award winning cheese and was salty, sweet and has little crystals that give it a bit of a crunch. SOO good.
It was dinner perfection! And it was pretty hands off, I was able to work my abs in between the sauteing, the egging and the baking.
can you spot the fanny pack?
I had been dying for a LONG run the week before and got my wish on Monday, I did 7.5 miles in the heavy drizzle and came home to the frittata and some Coconut water to help re-hydrate!
Coconut water is a natural isotonic beverage which replenishes what the body loses through physical activity: electrolytes, magnesium and potassium!
It is 100% natural with no fat and no added sugars--no added anything!
Plus it tastes great!
Hope you are having a great week so far! I have another busy day ahead at the gym, a few meetings, some interval training (more mile repeats) and teaching Bodyworks!
What gets you through hump day Wednesday? Mid-week date? A workout? a delicious dinner?
