It’s that time again! Time for Sarah, Arman, Lindsay, Alexis, Kylie and I to bring you another set of healthy eats and treats. This month, we decided to feature the vegetable that grows abundantly in your home gardens, and can be used in a quadrillion cooking applications: the zucchini.

Seriously, where can’t you put a zucchini?

If you’re looking to use up your stash of cherry tomatoes and your bounty of zucchini, look no further, my friends! This vegetable frittata with goat cheese makes for a healthy meal, yet is decadent enough in its tangy goat cheese splendor to feel like a treat. While I typically enjoy my frittatas first thing in the morning for breakfast, this one makes for an awesome dinner frittata…or snack, brunch, linner, bressert, no matter how you slice it.

I know what you’re thinking: this looks like a frittata cake, as it’s made smack dab in the middle of a cake pan. Fret not, my friends: you can also use a cast iron (or oven-safe) skillet, casserole dish, or pie pan. I simply used a 10-inch cake pan to change up my ush frittata aethetic. Savory egg cake bake? I’ll eat the whole thing!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ yellow onion finely chopped
  • 2 cups chopped zucchini 3 small zucchini squash
  • 1 cup cherry/grape heirloom tomatoes halved
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 8 eggs well beaten
  • 4 ounces crumbled goat cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute, stirring occasionally until translucent, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  3. Add the chopped zucchini, tomato, garlic, and sea salt. Continue sauteing until zucchini has softened but is still al dente, and the skins of the tomatoes begin to wilt, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until well-beaten. Whisk in the crumbled goat cheese.
  5. Transfer the sauteed veggie mixture to an 10-inch round baking pan or casserole dish. Pour in the egg/goat cheese mixture and use a spoon to evenly spread the veggies and eggs in the pan.
  6. Place on the center rack of the oven with a baking sheet underneath (just in case - to catch any egg that spills over). Bake for 32 to 40 minutes, until eggs have set up and are golden-brown on top. Let frittata sit 15 minutes before slicing and serving.

    This sounds wonderful. It could get me to eat eggs for breakfast – or I’d make it for lunch. Goat cheese seems to be a popular thing at this moment, and it will get me willing to try all sorts of things.

        Thankyou! Our oven’s old & a bit tricky, we always go a little under the stated time so things won’t sear on the bottom, & not being greased when it should really wouldn’t help matters. :]

        But we always wind up with a bunch of our neighbors’ bumper crops of zucchini & tomatoes, & always look for new things to do with them (we’ve made enough zucchini bread over the years to feed an army). This looks delish!

    I just made this and it’s delicious! I wouldn’t change a thing, except I’m low carbing so kept the onion to 1/2 cup chopped and 3/4 cup tomatoes. Myfitness pal logs this in at 301 calories and net carbs for 4 servings. I could not be more delighted with this dish!
