Zucchini Mushroom Frittata

Lovely supper tonight! Leek and Mushroom frittata! I had most of the ingredients chopped already. Something I'm trying to do every morning or when I'm chopping for one meal, chop for the next. This little guy likes to surprise me with the timing of his naps and when he needs me, so when I find a knife in my hand I'm a variable chopping machine.

All I had to chop we're the zucchini and garlic.

So, the ingredients are...

1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup sliced leeks
1 cup chopped zucchini
1 cup baby spinach
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 eggs lightly beaten
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup fresh parsley
1 tablespoon olive oil

Sounds good already, right?!

Heat your non-stick, non-teflon, pan on medium and add in your olive oil. Throw in the mushrooms and stir frequently until browned.


And the leeks for a minute or two...

... Then add the zucchini.

Cook until the zucchini are ALMOST done, then add the baby spinach. When wilted, toss in the garlic and stir gently for two or three minutes.

Add the eggs. Stir for about a minute, then spread it out on the bottom of the pan.

Throw it into a 350* oven for 5 minutes or until set.

Slide the whole thing onto a plate or cutting board and cut yourself a big slice.

I served this with homemade sauerkraut, a bit of cottage cheese and hot sauce. Also, sprinkle a big helping of parsley over everything because it's yummy and good for you.

I would have added 1/2 cup of red pepper with the zucchini if I had it.

The boys didn't try it. They had pizza.

All of these pictures were taken, and the blogging was written, on my iPad 2. It was a gift from my husband for Christmas. Isn't he awesome?

* To clarify, I do not recommend Teflon for a non-stick pan. We use porcelain non-stick or a hot cast iron pan.


  1. Hi Anita - Thanks for recommending using a Teflon® non-stick pan while making your Zucchini Mushroom Frittata. I represent DuPont and it's always a pleasure to see people recommending our products in their recipes.

    If you are interested in some other recipes or great cookbooks to look at for your blog, drop me an email and I would be glad to help you out! Thanks. Cheers, Sara

    1. Sara, thank-you for reading my blog post and commenting, but I do not recommend any one use Teflon. In my post I write to use non-Teflon pan. Thank-you for your offer.
