Gardens and farms are showering us with fresh summer veggies as we hit the middle of summer! Have local, CSA or farmer’s market vegetables that you don’t know what to do with?

Here’s an easy vegetarian recipe to try using July’s harvests. A perfect accompaniment for breakfast or brunch, this summer vegetable frittata is a great way to get in your daily servings of veggies.

After I found myself with extra zucchini and spinach from my parent’s garden, I added local tomatoes and eggs for this delicious dish!

This recipe is customizable, too. Found green peppers or onions at the farmers’ market this week? Dice ‘em up and add to the mix!

  6. Cover the pan and cook at a reduced heat for around 10 minutes or until the center begins to cook through.
  7. Preheat the Broiler.

  9. Remove from the oven and invert the frittata over your serving dish.
