Basil Tomato Cream Cheese Frittata 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Frittata is the Italian word for omelette. Frittatas are prepared differently than omelettes, usually started on the stovetop and finished under the broiler. The result is an egg dish that is firm, and nicely brown on the top and edges. Frittatas require an ovenproof skillet for preparation, but no other special equipment. These are great dishes to highlight fresh, seasonal ingredients or a perfect way to utilize leftovers.
Frittatas are perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Once cooked, they can be served hot, or cooled and served at room temperature. This flat omelette style dish will serve 4 to 6 people easily, often many more, as a frittata can have a dozen eggs or more in the dish along with fillers such as cheese, meat, and vegetables.


Ingredients:
12 Free Range Fresh Eggs
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1/4 teaspoon Dried Sage
1/4 teaspoon Dried Oregano
1/4 teaspoon Dried Thyme
1 tablespoon Butter
4 medium Roma or Plum Tomatoes, sliced
1 cup Fresh Basil Leaves, finely chopped
8 ounces Cream Cheese, cubed


Directions:
1. Add eggs, salt, pepper, sage, oregano, and thyme to medium bowl.

2. Whisk together.

3. Add butter to large oven proof skillet. Melt over medium heat.

4. Add tomatoes to skillet, and sauté one minute.

5. Reduce heat to low. Add fresh basil leaves and sauté until leaves are limp.

6. Pour egg mixture over tomatoes.

7. Top with cream cheese cubes.

8. Cover and cook over low heat approximately 20 minutes or until set on top.


Servings: 6


Notes: There are many variations of this recipe, try adding chopped greens (spinach or Kale) onion and or diced peppers and saute in butter with a dash of olive oil before adding eggs, then top with your favorite shredded cheese instead of cream cheese.

Wellness Tip
Juice Serving
Did you know that a serving of juice is just 4-6 ounces? This amount of 100% fruit juice is generally equivalent to a piece of fresh fruit. While juices are high in vitamins and minerals, large portions contribute a lot of calories to your diet. Most people need 2-5 servings of fruit and/or 100% juice per day. Drink water, not juice, to quench your thirst. Eating whole pieces of fruit adds additional fiber to your diet.

Recipe
Tropical Lemon Cranberry Coconut Chia Bars
Category: Desserts
Description: Remember the early 90's and the ch-ch-ch chia pets? The popular decorative planters were, in fact, sprouted chia seeds. Chia (Salvia hispanica) is an ancient grain that was used as a staple food by early Mayans and Aztecs, who found benefit in its high energy production, easy transportation, and easy crop maintenance. It was also used within many medicinal applications. Today, Chia has been adopted by the public as a nutrient dense dietary "super food." These tiny seeds contain high concentrations of essential fatty acids, protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and can easily be incorporated into any diet for an extra boost of nutrition.
Chia typically contains 30-35% oils and is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6, with each tablespoon providing approximately 2.5-3 g of Omega 3.
Fiber content of 30-40% per serving, with a high ratio of soluble fiber. This type of fiber allows a slower conversionof carbohydrates to glucose, assisting with those suffering with sugar-related illness.
These essential fatty acids and high amounts of soluble fiber, make Chia very beneficial for cholesterol management and cardiovascular health.
Promotes bowel regularity, while soothing inflammatory bowel issues.
They are classified as a high protein food, offering a complete protein (amino acid) content higher than most other grains.
They contain a high antioxidant content, providing a mix of bioflavonoids and quercentin, with the average ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value per tablespoon being 960-1000.
