Today I have a super easy and super YUMMY recipe for you all! I LOVE making these when I’m hungry for brunch, lunch, or even late at night. I’ll even make it before I go to bed. And it’s pretty healthy, full of veggies and protein! I also have a little surprise elixir in store for you to enjoy along side of this yummy dish! So without further adieu, I present to you this recipe…
VEGGIE FRITTATA WITH GUAVA NECTAR, ORANGE JUICE, & BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE
Ingredients for Frittata
Half a Zucchini
Half a small onion
A few pinches of fresh parsley
Salt & Pepper
So first you want to chop your veggies. I used Zucchini, Tomato, & Onion. They are my FAVE together, and especially with eggs. Also, be sure to give em a rinse first before chopping!
Coat your pan with some olive oil, fire up that heat and once that starts sizzling, throw in your veggies! These are going to have to cook for awhile before adding your egg. So stir those around a bit, get them coated in the olive oil, and then turn the heat down a bit, place a lid over them, and let them cook from the steam! Set it and forget it for awhile…
Now you want to get out 2 eggs and scramble those! Now after scrambling my eggs, I love to add salt & pepper, sometimes a little crushed red pepper for heat,AND FRESH PARSLEY! Let’s go outside to my parsley plant to pick a few sprigs!
Well that was a nice little surprise! Have a nice day Mr. Grubby! Now back to our recipe. Rinse your garden parsley…
And add to your scrambled egg mixture…
Once that’s all mixed, check on your veggies! If they are still not tender, leave them cook until they are! Once they are cooked all the way through, you can add your egg to the pan now.
Make sure the egg covers the whole bottom of the pan, coating all of your veggies as well. Put heat on low, place a lid over it, and let your eggs cook through. While that is cooking, let’s start on our magical elixir!
So for this recipe I used my handy dandy Magic Bullet. This this is AWESOME for making smoothies of any kind. I started by filling my bullet halfway with ice, then halfway with this YUMMY STRAWBERRY GUAVA to cover that ice, then the remainder of the bullet cup with the orange juice.
You want to blend that until there are no more huge ice chunks. Once you have a nice blended consistency, now add a handful of blueberries! By now your cup should already be pretty full of smoothie, so be careful not to make it overflow!
Put the cap back on and blend again, just so the blueberries are crushed up into the mixture now! Ok your smoothie is done now! Let’s put our bullet cup in the fridge until it is ready to serve with our Frittata! Let’s check on that now…
Throughout the course of me making the smoothie, I was also checking my frittata every now and then. I kept scraping the sides around the eggs in the pan, and also poked some holes in the center with a fork to prevent air bubbles.
When your eggs look like the picture below, they are done! The olive oil I used to grease the already nonstick pan ensures that my frittata will slide ride out onto and plate!
Let’s pour our magical elixir!! I garnished with some fresh mint from the garden! How refreshing does this look!?!?
A beautiful table scape for a beautiful day! I can feel fall in the air already…
The breeze on this day was so perfect, and the flowers are already starting to hide away.
LET’S DIG IN!
This dish is so enchantingly delicious!
OOPS! I ate the WHOLE THING!!!
I hope you enjoyed this recipe as much as I did! Please try it out, and let me know if you have other ideas to add to the recipe! I’d love to hear!
HAVE A MAGICKAL DAY!
So I managed to get my hands on this Sunburst Green Tea Flavored Mighty Leaf Iced Tea! My mom brewed it the first time without all of the dressings I added this time, and it was a bit too strong even for me, so I added some stuff to soften the taste a bit for those who don’t like their iced tea too strong.
1 Mighty Leaf Sunburst Green Tea Bag
1/4 to 1/2 cup Sugar (Depending on how sweet you like yours)
1 Fresh Orange
A Handful of Fresh Garden Mint
So the steps for this recipe is pretty easy! First you boil your pot of water. (I don’t use a kettle for making ICED teas, I use a pot, because you want room to steep your tea bags using the whole batch of water!) And the tea bags for THIS specific tea are HUGE, but they are so pretty and they smell SOOOO GOOD!
So once your pot of water comes to a boil, turn off the heat, and add your 1 large tea bag!
Let that steep for however long, if you like stronger tea, let it steep longer, and if you like weaker tea let it steep shorter.
While that is steeping, go ahead and add your sugar, and stir, stir, stir! You want all of your sugar to dissolve into the hot water. At this point you’re going to let your pot of water cool, or at least become lukewarm so it is a bareable temperature to work with when you add your fruit and herbs, which we are not trying to cook! *giggles*
So now would be a good time to prep our fruit!
Cut up one orange into slices like seen in the above picture! Also be sure to collect some fresh mint from your garden, if you do not have a garden you can buy it from any supermarket (Just be careful of pesticides, YUCK!!). Most farmer’s markets these days sell organic produce, which don’t use pesticides, BUT I’d give them a good rinse off anyway, cuz you really don’t know where it’s coming from or who is handling it. If you’re picking from the garden, be careful of BEES!
Now is when you add your orange, mint, and ice!
How colorful and beautiful does that look!?!?
Let’s have a taste of our magical concoction! NOW, THAT’S REFRESHING! You can sip on this while cooking another whimsical recipe, or while your gardening on those hot summer days! Either way, Enjoy!
Til next time…
