THE RECIPE

Ricotta and Herb Frittata with Feta

A fresh no fuss frittata

When you’re dreaming of an elegant spring lunch on the patio or a creative breakfast-for-dinner option, frittatas are a delicious, no-fuss way to put a simple meal on the table. They’re also one of our favorite ways to use up the bits and pieces of whatever leftover veggies we have in the fridge. In this beautiful green-hued version, Sylvie blends the eggs in the food processor with a quartet of fresh herbs (use whatever you have on hand) plus creamy ricotta that gives the frittata a smooth and rich consistency. Poured into a pre-heated cast iron skillet with bits of crumbled feta, the frittata bakes up fluffy and golden without any attention required. Serve this right out of the oven alongside a simple salad for a light dinner and save the leftovers for a delicious cold lunch the next day.

When we first came across Gourmande in the Kitchen, we fell in love. Sylvie’s breathtaking photography and delicious recipes are inspiring even at first glance and we love how she brings her “gourmande” twists on cooking without any of the fuss. This is the kind of food you’d be proud to serve to even the most special of dinner guests…while never telling them how simple it was to make! We especially appreciate Sylvie’s motto of “cook simply” and her belief that delicious, nourishing, inspired food doesn’t have to be complicated when you focus on highlighting the flavors of quality ingredients. With Sylvie’s recipes, you too can let your inner “gourmande” shine through.

THE TIP

For No Fuss, No Stick Frittatas, Use the Oven

The secret to no fuss frittatas that don't stick to the pan is to use the oven. Preheat the pan in the oven, add the eggs, and bake until golden and set.
