Chances are you have everything you need on hand to make this easy vegetable frittata recipe TODAY!

I’m sure you’ve had plenty of days, like me, where you’re craving a quick, easy, HEALTHY home cooked meal, but aren’t sure what to make.

Enter this yummy vegetable frittata recipe I whipped up for lunch last week after I got home from a root touch up. Note to self: Mr. Spicy actually noticed my hair this time and gave me quite a few compliments-I think because it was super straight and shiny 🙂

I actually came home quite hangry, and could have easily grabbed a handful of chips to nosh on, but knew my tummy, mood, and energy level would be MUCH happier if I made a healthy meal.

Luckily a quick peek in the fridge revealed eggs, cheese, veggies, and fresh oregano, and it suddenly dawned on me to make a frittata. Side note: It’s gluten free, vegetarian, low FODMAP, low carb, & paleo if you omit the cheese.

Got eggs, veggies, cheese, and fresh herbs? Why not whip up a quick, easy, healthy Vegetable Frittata???

What’s a frittata made of?

Eggs are key. (Although I have seen recipes for vegan frittatas made with tofu or chickpea flour that would be fun to try.)

After that, you can have fun experimenting with any assortment of fillings including vegetables, meat, cheese, spices, and fresh herbs. If you’ve never made one before, frittata’s are one of the most versatile meals you can make!

How to make a frittata. (It’s easier than you might think.)

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Prep your ingredients. Mix your eggs, chop your veggies, fresh herbs, & other fillings, grate your cheese, & gather your seasoning.
  2. Heat oil or butter over medium, in an oven proof skillet. I like to make my frittata’s in a well-seasoned cast iron pan.
  3. Saute your vegetables & season with salt, pepper, and any additional dried spices or herbs. Optional: Add cooked & chopped meat if desired. You may also stir in grated cheese at this time, or wait to add at the end.
  4. Spread filling evenly across skillet and pour egg mixture on top. Turn heat down to medium low and cook for ~ 8 minutes or until eggs have firmed up on the sides of the pan, but top is still runny.
  5. Place skillet in oven and bake for ~5 minutes. Top with grated cheese (if haven’t added in earlier) and bake for an additional 3 minutes, or until melted.
  6. Remove skillet from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Top with fresh herbs, if desired, and slice into wedges for serving.
  7. MEAL PREP TIP: This vegetable frittata recipe will keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days~enjoy leftovers hot or cold! You can also use a larger 12-inch skillet and add 2 more eggs + extra toppings, so you can have extra leftovers. Yum!

Vegetable Frittata Recipe Variations

Once you’ve mastered the basic vegetable frittata recipe, it’s easy to swap the veggies, cheese, herbs & spices with whatever you have on hand. Here are just a few flavor pairings to try…
