Frittata recipe please...?!

Postby ali76 » Fri Jan 25, 2008 4:13 pm

Hi all!

Wondering if anyone out there had a recipe for low fat (of course!) potato frittata. I love Quiche but unfortunately too many eggs play havoc with my tummy so thought a potato frittata might be a good idea?

Would love to hear from you!

Thanks!

Have you considered trying a tofu frittata? I know it sounds vile, but I made one the other night and it tasted great. Tofu is low in fat and high in protein with no cholesterol so it's a healthy alternative to eating lots of eggs.

Here are a couple of recipes I found:

http://kajismom.blogspot.com/2006/10/tofu-frittata.html
http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2006/01/mo ... ttata.html
http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2006/12/mi ... iches.html
(I've tried this last recipe, the mini crustless tofu quiches, and it's excellent!)

I didn't follow a recipe for mine. Just chucked a lot of ingredients in a blender and hoped for the best. It worked out okay so I'm sure you could improvise around any of these recipes and end up with something good. The only requirements seem to be tofu, some flour to hold it together and baking powder to help it rise a bit. Add what flavourings and veggies you like, bake it in an oven until gold on top, and away you go!

Good luck!

Just posting my fritatta recipe on this old old post. (I'm having it for dinner tonight - yum)
Ingredients
5 eggs
1 tablespoon plain flour
1 cup skim milk
What ever vegies you like but this is what i use
grated carrot
tomato - fresh or sundried i prefer fresh cherry tomato
onion dixed
garlic minced
bok choy
bean sprouts
capsicum diced
zuchini diced
corn kernals
and some sort of meat - cabanossi or bacon or ham or chicken chunks its up to you or no meat at all.
Low fat cheese

Method
1. cut all the vegies
2. cook vegies in a frypan
3. In a seperate bowl mix eggs with flour then add milk and whisk together season to taste.
4. When all the vegies are cooked pour egg mixture over top and move make gaps with a wooden spoon to get the mixture right through the vegies.
5. When egg is half cooked top with cheese the place under the grill to cook the rest of the way.
6. enjoy :mrgreen:

I'm sure you can make it healthier by just using egg whites, but if you have enough vegies you don't need as much mixture.
