Zucchini and Ricotta Frittata

Zucchini and Ricotta Frittata



4 eggs
4 egg whites, separated
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 large zucchini, coarsely grated
200g ricotta cheese, loosely crumbled
Salt and pepper
2 teaspoons extra virgin oil
1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
1⁄2 cup small basil leaves, loosely packed


  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. Whisk eggs, egg whites and garlic in a bowl. Gently fold in zucchini and ricotta and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat oil in a 20cm diameter frying pan (with a metal handle) over medium heat. Pour in the zucchini mixture and cook for 5-6 minutes until just set around the edges but still runny in the middle.
  4. Remove from the heat and place under the grill about 6cm from the heat source for 2-3 minutes until golden brown and just set. Remove from the grill.
  5. Cut into wedges. Serve 1 wedge for a female and 2 wedges for a male. Serve frittata with cherry tomatoes sprinkled with basil leaves and freshly cracked black pepper.
