Zucchini-Thyme Frittata

Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cold water
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 tablespoons pure olive oil
  • 6 small zucchini (1 1/2 pounds), cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

How to make this recipe

  1. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, water, salt and pepper. Stir in the cheese.
  2. In a medium nonstick skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the zucchini; cook over moderately low heat until just softened, 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Let cool; then stir into the egg mixture.
  3. Preheat the broiler. In the skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil over moderate heat. Add the egg mixture, cover, reduce the heat to low and cook until firm, about 5 minutes. Uncover and broil for 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
  4. Slide the frittata onto a serving plate and sprinkle with the thyme. Serve at room temperature.
