Zucchini’s up and running for one of the latest, greatest superfoods to add to your healthy ingredient repertoire, making this Zucchini Frittata recipe all the more appealing. Otherwise known as summer squash and originating in Mexico and Central America, zucchini is from the Cucurbitaceae, or gourd, family. What it lacks in substantial flavour on its own, it makes up for in texture and nutritional value. It also adds texture and creaminess to any given recipe, especially this frittata dish. Zucchinis are very high in vitamin B6, vitamin A, and vitamin C, as well as dietary fiber, riboflavin, manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. They’re also high in iron, niacin, and thiamin. They even contain small amounts of protein for those who are always on the search for a little extra. This yummy zucchini frittata recipe serves up to four people and would make for an excellent breakfast recipe, but could also serve well for brunch or lunch. It’s hearty enough to eat all on its own, but you could also add it as a yummy side dish as well.*
