I have now been sitting here for ages, trying to come up with something interesting to write before I post the recipe but to no avail. In my desperation I started a thwarted ramble about whether or not life is strange because it deviates from our expectations but consider yourself fortunate – I deleted that. And here I am now without much to say, well yes I do have things to say but I feel a bit polemic today so I better stay off any thread that brings that on as well. I better just get on with my recipe.

Frittata With Zucchini, Fried Bread and Herbs

I have always considered frittata as one of those culinary life savers you need on days when you stand there in the middle of the kitchen thinking ‘and now what??…’ Frittata is versatile, easy and quick to make. Not to speak about how nutritious it is as well; eggs, cheese and vegetables/meat, fish whatever comes to your mind in one happy meal that even tastes good, isn’t that a gracious gift from Mother Nature? Now this frittata is even better because you don’t need to put bread on the table because I have already added it in the form of bread cubes that you fry in oil and herbs. I added some zucchini but you can take any other vegetable you want though zucchini do taste good in a frittata!

one small frittata, perfect for a solitary lunch

1 slice of rustic bread
finely chopped fresh herbs of your choice
1 zucchini
2 eggs
3 tbsp freshly grated parmesan cheese
extra-virgin olive oil

   Dice the bread and fry in olive oil with the chopped herbs until crunchy in a small skillet or pan. Take out the bread and then slice and fry the zucchini in the olive oil until golden. Put the bread back into the pan and keep it hot.

   Whisk eggs, parmesan, salt and pepper in a small bowl and pour on the zucchini and bread. Cook on medium heat until firm enough to be turned around with the help of a lid or a plate. Cook for a minute or two and then serve!
