Summer Vegetable Frittata with Asiago Cheese

Summer Vegetable Frittata with Asiago Cheese

Summer Vegetable Frittata with Asiago Cheese is a perfect dish at any time of the year.  However, it’s particularly good served cold in the hight of summer.

Feel free to choose your own selection of vegetables the more the merrier.

Some good options for this Summer Vegetable Frittata are: 

  • Broccoli – thought to maintain heart health, help in the prevention of cancer and even stop premature ageing… think I will double up on this powerhouse veggie!
  • Peas – high in many nutrients and anti-oxidants these are essential for your summer vegetable frittata
  • Green Beans – high in fibre (along with all the other vegetables in this list) which help keep your digestive system healthy and can also aid with weight loss by removing food waste from the body quickly
  • Brussels Sprouts – might seem like a strange option, however, they actually taste amazing in the Frittata.  Not only are they high in disease-busting vitamins, but, they also contain omega 3.  The same fatty acid that is found in fish and olive oil.  This makes them a great choice if weight loss is your end goal.
  • Peppers – add a splash of colour as well as a tonne of vitamin B and C which form the building blocks of good health and should also have a positive effect on your energy levels too.

 

So, take your pick.  Add them all if you please, for an extra nutrition hit.  Feel free to play around with the cheese options too, pretty much any cheese will go with this vegetable delight.
