Sum­mer Sautéed Veg­eta­bles 2 tea­spoons olive oil

¾ cup diced zuc­chini ¾ cup chopped red bell pep­per ½ cup sliced sweet onion Heap­ing ¼ tea­spoon kosher salt


8 large eggs

¼ cup whole milk 2 ta­ble­spoons chopped fresh basil ¼ tea­spoon kosher salt A cou­ple cracks of pep­per


Scant ¼ cup feta 4 thinly sliced grape toma­toes


Pre­heat the oven to 350°F.


Make the sautéed veg­eta­bles. Heat a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium. Once the pan is warm, add the oil, zuc­chini, bell pep­per, onion, and salt. Sauté for about 7 min­utes or un­til the veg­eta­bles are ten­der, stir­ring oc­ca­sion­ally. Taste and add more salt if nec­es­sary.


Mean­while, make the base. In a medium bowl, whisk to­gether all of the base ingredients un­til well com­bined. Pour the egg mix­ture into the pan over the sautéed veg­eta­bles, stir­ring gen­tly to make sure the veg­eta­bles are evenly dis­trib­uted. Top with the feta and tomato slices.


Place pan in the oven to fin­ish, about 10 to 15 min­utes or un­til set. Turn on the broiler, and al­low the frittata to lightly brown un­der close watch.

Hands-on: 15 min. To­tal: 30 min. Yields: 4 to 6 serv­ings For a quick morn­ing prep, chop veg­eta­bles the night be­fore and store in fridge.
