- 6 large eggs
- 1/4 Cup unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons Stacey Hawkins Roasted Garlic Oil (or high quality regular oil and fresh garlic)
- 1 Cup baby spinach
- 1 Cup zucchini, sliced in half lengthwise then cut into thin slices
1 Tablespoon (one capful) Stacey Hawkins Tuscan Fantasy Seasoning (or natural sea salt, garlic, fresh cracked pepper, parsley, red bell pepper & onion)
- 1 Cup cherry tomatoes, halved
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Whisk together eggs, almond milk. Set aside. (Note- for a fluffier frittata, do this in a blender or mix with an immersion blender.)
Place an 8″ oven safe skillet on medium high heat on the stovetop (NO plastic handle- careful!) Add the oil to the pan and heat.
Add the remaining ingredients and cook for 2-4 minutes until greens wilt and zucchini starts to soften.
Pour the eggs in the pan.
Turn the stove off and carefully slide the skillet into the oven (you can put on a cookie sheet if it’s easier for you.)
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the eggs are set. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice and serve! Great hot or chilled.
