A veggie-filled frittata is perfect at any summertime meal.
There are days that you want to sit down to a steak and potatoes, and days you want a little bit of a lighter meal. Enter the frittata. Traditionally a breakfast food, I've been known to eat it for lunch or dinner. Throwing in a variety of roasted vegetables keeps it interesting and colorful.
If you want an even "lighter" dish, you can swap out some of the whole eggs for egg whites: two to three whites for every egg you replace, though leave some yolk in there for color, texture and taste. You can try out any combo of vegetables you like - mushrooms, onions, try whatever your fancy!
