Frittata, an Italian dish which is egg based and mostly cooked over the stop top and sometimes baked in the oven has become my recent favorite delish. So, I experimented this Cabbage Oatmeal Frittata.
Earlier I have baked frittata and shared with you all but this time I wanted to try stove top frittata and include whole grains and veggies along with eggs for my lunch.
For this, I heated a nonstick medium sized frying pan (the ones that we use for omelets) and added oil to it. I flavored the oil with oregano herbs and tossed in some julienned carrots and cabbage. As soon as the veggies were cooked I added roasted oats to it and mixed them. Then, I poured whipped eggs and seasoned with salt and pepper and topped with mozzarella cheese. I let it cook for some time and then using a plate flipped over the frittata to the other side and cooked again.
Once the frittata was done and cut into slices I fell in love with the aroma and my mouth watered. At that moment I just wanted to pop a slice of Cabbage Oatmeal Frittata into my mouth. The chewy mozzarella cheese made it even more tempting. 🙂
When I took the first bite I thought I ate a pizza slice. I was startled with the taste of this beautiful frittata. I took another bite and soon finished the whole slice. I realized that it tasted exactly like pizza and I found a perfect and healthy substitute to satisfy my pizza cravings. For a few minutes, I completely forgot that I was eating Cabbage Oatmeal Frittata, I thought I was devouring pizza. 🙂
With this recipe I discovered another great idea to consume eggs and include whole grains and veggies into my family’s diet.
SSSHHHHHH !!! My family still doesn’t know that they ate Cabbage Oatmeal Frittata. My little one still thinks it was pizza. 🙂
