The Versatility Of A Frittata Can Be Enjoyed Breakfast, Lunch Or Dinner
Frittata is such a fantastic meal – it is ridiculously easy to make, you can throw whatever ingredients you like into it, it can be enjoyed hot or cold, and at any meal of the day!! It can be such a great fall back option when you’ve had a long day at work and don’t have your dinner meal planned. And the left-overs can be refrigerated and enjoyed the next day for breakfast or lunch.
This vibrant combination of ingredients including sweet cherry tomatoes, cubes of mozzarella cheese, black beans, and purple basil, creates a high-protein dish that is bursting with savoury flavor. Pair your under-200-calorie piece with wholemeal toast or a side salad for the perfect meal.
Red, White, Bean, and Basil Frittata
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 cup black beans
- 8 eggs
- 1 tbsp. fresh basil leaves, chopped (I used purple basil)
- Salt and pepper
- 2 oz. mozzarella cheese, cubed
- Pour the olive oil in a small pan and add the tomatoes and beans. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and sauté for five minutes on medium-low heat. Lower heat to low for two minutes.
- In a small bowl, beat the eggs, basil, and a little salt and pepper.
- Slowly pour the egg mixture into the pan with the tomatoes and beans. Add the cheese and give it a few stirs. Cover and let cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until the frittata puffs up slightly and is totally cooked on top.
- Place the frittata on a large plate, cool for a few minutes, cut into eight wedges, and serve warm.
