Meat FREE Monday’s – ANY ONE?

does any one else enjoy Meat FREE MONDAYS as much as we do?

it is seriously a family tradition in our house now. We don’t eat any where near as much meat as we used to, and have easily been able to incorporate plenty of vegan and vegetarian dishes into the rest of our week.

these little babies were super easy to make and so awesome for the summer weather.
If your anything like me, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven in the heat – and heat the house up even more.
So when you see a window of cooler weather, switch on that oven and get creative.

Frittatas are awesome and can include any thing! they are all about the eggs, and the veggies are what ever is left over in the fridge or in some cases – whats on special or in season at the market!

in the picture above i’ve made zucchini and corn, but remember the eggs are the star of the dish!
ingredients – method :
2 small zucchini’s grated
1 can of corn kernals drained
1/2 a large onion diced
10 eggs
3/4 cup of grated cheese
pinch of salt and pepper
2 tsp curry powder
mix all ingredients together well (if you have any herbs add them!

I love using my pyrex dishes, and in this instance i used a square one.
baked in the oven on 180 degrees fan forced for 40minutes
Once cooled i cut it into large slices and placed in a container in the fridge.
I sliced them into bite size pieces because they were appealing for the kids. But you could do this for a dinner party dish! top it with a half cherry tomato. you could also place a piece of smoked salmon, capers and dill on top. everything works with a frittata!

Good luck – Leia
