If you’re lucky enough to have a vegetable garden or access to a good farmer’s market, you must realize that zucchini season is upon us! Zucchini is one of those ingredients that really gets my creative cooking energy going, and even though I’ve shared more than 50 Zucchini Recipes since I started this blog, it seems like every summer I have fun thinking of recipe ideas to use zucchini.

This Greek Frittata with Zucchini, Tomatoes, Feta and Herbs is a recipe I first came up with in 2006 and I’m thrilled to finally have some photos that show how really delicious this frittata is! The recipe uses a generous amount of zucchini, canned tomatoes, and Mozzarella and Feta cheese, and when I made it with Jake for these updated photos we added some fresh chopped Greek oregano and fresh basil. No worries if you don’t have fresh herbs and garden zucchini, this will still be delicious with dried oregano and basil and zucchini from the store. I’d happily eat this tasty Greek Frittata for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and this recipe a perfect option for Meatless Monday.

While tomatoes are draining in a colander, cut the zucchini into strips and then into 1/2 inch pieces. Heat the olive oil and saute the zucchini, garlic, and dried herbs. Then add the drained tomatoes and continue to cook until the liquid from the tomatoes is all evaporated. Beat the eggs, then pour eggs over the vegetables and cook until eggs are barely starting to set. Add half the cheese (and chopped fresh herbs if you have them) and stir gently, then cook the frittata a few minutes more.

Then sprinkle over the remaining mozzarella and Feta, cover the pan, and cook until the cheese is mostly melted and the eggs are mostly set. Put the frittata under the broiler and brown the top for a few minutes, watching it carefully and rotating the pan as needed.  (When it’s summer I do this browning step in a toaster oven.)

Sprinkle Frittata with a little more chopped fresh herbs if you have them and serve. This can make 4 large servings or six smaller ones.  I love to eat it with a dollop of sour cream.

Greek Frittata with Zucchini, Tomato, Feta, and Herbs

This Greek Frittata with Zucchini, Tomato, Feta, and Herbs is one of the Top Ten Most Popular Low-Carb Zucchini Recipes on Kalyn’s Kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes, very well drained
  • 1 medium zucchini, diced in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. Spike seasoning (optional, if you don’t have Spike use any general-purpose seasoning mix that’s good with eggs)
  • coarse ground black pepper to taste
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Mozzarella cheese (or more)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese (or more)
  • 2 T chopped fresh Greek Oregano (optional)
  • 2 T chopped fresh basil (optional)
  • sour cream for serving (optional)

Directions:

  1. Pour the tomatoes into a colander placed in the sink and let tomatoes drain well.
  2. Cut ends off the zucchini, then cut it lengthwise into strips and then into 1/2 inch pieces.
  3. Use a 10 or 12 inch heavy frying pan which can go under the broiler. Spray pan with nonstick spray if needed. Preheat broiler.
  4. Heat olive oil in pan, add zucchini, garlic, dried herbs, and Spike seasoning and saute 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook 3-5 minutes more, until liquid from tomatoes is nearly all evaporated.
  5. While vegetable mixture cooks, break eggs into bowl and beat well. Pour eggs into pan with the zucchini and spices and cook 2-3 minutes, or until eggs are barely starting to set.
  6. Add half of Mozzarella cheese and Feta (and most of the chopped fresh herbs if you’re using them) and stir gently; then cook about 3 minutes more.
  7. Sprinkle remaining Mozzarella and feta cheese over top and cook a few minutes with a lid on the pan.  (The cheese should be mostly melted and the eggs fairly set when you put it under the broiler.)
  8. When frittata looks nearly done, place under broiler until top is slightly browned. (This probably won’t take more than a few minutes; watch it carefully and rotate the pan if needed to get it evenly browned.)
  9. Sprinkle the cooked frittata with the rest of the chopped fresh herbs (if using) and let it sit for a couple of minutes; then cut into pie shaped wedges to serve.
  10. This is good with a dollop of sour cream.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
This recipe is suitable for low-carb, Keto, and low-glycemic diet plans, which might recommend full fat-cheese. Feta is a lower-fat cheese, and it would be recommended to use low-fat mozzarella if making this for the South Beach Diet; other low-carb diets would probably refer full-fat cheese. I’d eat this for any phase of South Beach.

  2. Hi! Question… If you do not have an oven safe pan, can you skip the step of placing under the broiler? I just wanted to make sure it would still be cooked through

  3. This was fabulous! Thank you!

  4. I made this for Brunch this morning and it was FABULOUS! Wow! Definitely a "keeper" and it will be served to the next lucky overnight guests we have. JD

  5. I am absolutely trying this tonight!Friends,neighbors and relatives please keep off my kitchen today

  6. made it last night, yum yum yum! But i did not use the spike seasoning.

  7. Yummy! Love the mix of veggies. Thanks for the great recipe.

  8. I am making this now. The instructions note to mix the eggs with the cream or milk, but I don't see cream/milk in the ingredient list.

    • Oh duh, that's a mistake on my part. I used to always add a couple of tablespoons of cream or milk to the eggs, but the last few years I haven't been doing that. You can do it either way. I'll edit the recipe to take out that instruction.

  9. Looks good. Very different from the Greek frittata I make. It has potatoes, spinach and onion. Only feta in it. No mozza.

  10. You do such wonders with Greek flavors! This looks like another winner, for sure.

  11. I love the contrast with the new photos and old ones! This time, the beauty of the dish really comes through — and of course it is all of my favorite flavors.

  12. heading to the kitchen wish me luck!!!!

  13. No you don't really stir the mixture much once the eggs are added.

  14. This looks delish! I have a question. Do I stir the mix after I add the eggs, as I do when making scrambled eggs? Or, do I just let it sit and cook.

  15. This sounds like a great dish since it really could be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

  16. Just made this for dinner. Quite tasty!

  17. Thanks Dara. I am excited to try this with fresh tomatoes when I get some.

  18. I can see why this has been a favorite for so many years. The flavors are so fresh…perfect for summertime.

  19. Hyosun, so glad you like it!

  20. I usually make frittata for weekend brunch. You're right. This can be a quick meal during the week as well. The Greek version will be a nice change. Thank you for the great recipe again!

  21. Grace, hello! So great to hear from you. I am off to write you an e-mail right now.

  22. Kalyn, Looking for wondrous friends from the past and found this. Can't wait to try the recipe! Glad to see you still have a garden–and a passion!

  23. Lydia, I love Greek Seasoning and agree it would be great in this!

  24. I love this combination of flavors, and it's just the type of dish I'd nibble on throughout the week, too. Greek seasoning blend might be a great addition here in place of the oregano. It sometimes includes dried lemon peel, which could be interesting.

  25. It's a 14.5 oz. can of tomatoes (duh!) Sorry about that; I will edit right now and add that info.

  26. How big is the can of chopped tomatos?

  27. Kalyn, I think “Greek inspired” would be a more apt title of this dish. Delish indeed but not Greek in any regional dish sense or as something one would come across in Greece.

  28. Anonymous, thanks for the feedback. Glad to hear you liked it.

  29. This was so good!~ Both my husband and I loved it!!

  30. This was so good, I made it tonight and both DH and I loved it.
