Vegetable Frittata With Cheese

 Another nutritious and healthy recipe for the kids!

   Ingredients

         8 slightly beaten eggs

             1  tablespoon snipped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed

           2  tablespoons olive oil

              1  cup frozen whole kernel corn or cut fresh corn

               1/2  cup chopped zucchini

                        1/3  cup thinly sliced green onions (3)

               3/4  cup chopped plum tomatoes (2)

1/2  cup shredded cheddar cheese (2 ounces)

Directions

1. In a medium bowl combine eggs and basil; set aside. Heat oil in a large broilerproof skillet; add corn, zucchini, and green onions. Cook and stir for 3 minutes; add tomatoes. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat about 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

2. Pour egg mixture over vegetables in skillet. Cook over medium heat. As mixture sets, run a spatula around edge of skillet, lifting egg mixture so uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking and lifting edges until egg mixture is almost set (surface will be moist). Sprinkle with cheese.

3. Place the skillet under broiler 4 to 5 inches from heat. Broil 1 to 2 minutes or until top is just set and cheese is melted. Makes 4 servings.

    This is very tasty, Sarmila. I had a question as you are a nutritionist – what do you think about Soy? Is it true that in the US most Soy is genetecially engineered and so should be avoided?

    High levels of phytic acid in soy reduce assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. So , not all the time soy is good, but Yes, sometimes, in some cases Soy is essential
