I don't know about you, but one of my comfort foods is fritatta. It's a relationship that started when I first went to Spain where fritatta is a staple. Here is tonight's Zucchini and Chorizo Fritatta, inspired by the flavours of this Spanish staple.
Zucchini and Chorizo Frittata
(* from the patch)
*2 zucchini grated
semi-dried tomatoes chopped
1/2 red onion sliced very thinly
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 chorizo chopped
250 gms ricotta
In one bowl, mix zucchini, ricotta, semi-dried tomatoes. In a frying pan, lightly fry the garlic, onion and chorizo. In another bowl, whip eggs and pour into zucchini mix. When onion, garlic and chorizo mix is cooked on, lower the heat and pour in the egg, ricotta, onion and garlic mix. Sprinkle with chipotle and parmesan cheese. Cook on stove top until cooked at least half way through, then place frying pan under the grill to cook from the top until cooked through. Cut fritatta and serve and eat. Yum!
I am afraid to say that all my photos of cooked food look horrible, but believe me, this was delicious.
My two zucchini plants are still producing and I an enjoying the produce and picking quite young. I am looking forward to a few more zucchini feeds this autumn before the frost nips the plants.
How are your zucchinis? What have you made recently with your zukes?
Until next week - Love your zucchini.
