Sauteed zucchini and shallots are simply seasoned with salt and pepper before joining the eggy, mint and Parmesan-flecked filling for this easy frittata. Because this recipe is highly adaptable, you can also add whatever ingredients you like. The hardest part, really, is flipping the frittata halfway through cooking. Prepared on the stovetop, it's all-but-built for a quick weeknight dinner or a leisurely weekend brunch. Serve this dish with a peppery arugula salad that's lightly dressed in lemon vinaigrette.


  • 3 zucchini (large, cut into rounds)
  • 1 shallots (finely sliced)
  • 4 eggs
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • salt and ground black pepper (as needed)
  • mint leaves (chopped)


  1. Saute the shallot in a pan with a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
  2. Add the zucchini and saute for approximately 15 minutes (add a few tablespoons of water if necessary).
  3. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  4. Beat the eggs lightly in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, a pinch of salt and the chopped mint leaves.
  5. Pour the egg mixture on top of the zucchini in the pan and cook the frittata on both sides until nicely browned.
  6. Serve warm garnished with a few mint leaves.

I was on the fence about making this recipe simply because mint and zucchini didn't seem like a good mix. However, this dish was so flavorsome and none of the flavors masked the other. It was such a pleasant dish that I am already planning to make it again. Ranking this recipe at 4 stars.
