Low-Carb Garden Veggie Frittata with Chives and Parmesan

I have a good crop of zucchini, and recently used some in this Low-Carb Garden Veggie Frittata with Chives and Parmesan. What’s better better than cooking with ingredients from your garden, and this was an example of how delicious a simple recipe can be when it’s made with the freshest ingredients. I was a slow adopter for chives, but they added some great flavor here.

Since I used zucchini, green pepper, and chives from my garden, this seemed like a perfect entry for Grow Your Own, which is celebrating the one year anniversary this month! Grow Your Own is sponsored by Andrea’s Recipes, and also hosted by Andrea for the Anniversary edition. I really enjoyed meeting Andrea at the BlogHer conference this July, and this seems like a fun way to help her celebrate the anniversary of the event.

How to Make Low-Carb Garden Veggie Frittata with Chives and Parmesan:

(This is just a summary of the steps pictured above; scroll down for the complete recipe.)

  1. I started the frittata by cooking some chopped zucchini, green bell pepper, and onion in a little olive oil, seasoned with Spike Seasoning.
  2. When the veggies were partially cooked, I added the chives and let them cook for just a minute.
  3. Then I poured in beaten eggs and cooked about 5 minutes. (You can lift up the edge and let the uncooked egg run under the cooked part, but I didn’t need to.)
  4. Then I sprinkled the top of the partly-set eggs with good quality parmesan cheese, covered and cooked about 5 minutes more. (Use more or less cheese as desired!)
  5. Since I have a pan with a heat-proof handle, and a great gas broiler that seems made for this use, I always like to put the frittata under the broiler and brown the top, but this is completely optional.
  6. Serve hot, with some sour cream, salsa, or hot sauce to add at the table if desired.
