Courgettes & goat cheese frittata

Courgettes and goat cheese frittata

More of a mix between a frittata and quiche, this recipe is delicious and delicate. It is filling, and satisfying and make it a great dish for a garden party buffet.

I used goat cheese instead of feta for a more delicate, yet distinctive flavor, which makes it for the more sophisticated palate.

Courgettes are inexpensive and delicious

Courgettes are easily available and inexpensive, and in season during the summer. They are a good source of fibers, potassium, and manganese, while goat cheese tends to be better tolerated than cow’s milk, but at the same time, it has a strong flavor that creates a distinctive taste, meaning that you can use just a small quantity to achieve a full and delicious taste.

This frittata is very versatile and can be used as a starter, or main meal, with a side of spinach, salad or tomatoes. You can also make it in advance and use it for a savory breakfast or brunch, snack or picnic food.

Goat cheese may be more tolerated than cow’s cheese

For this recipe I used cream goat cheese, which I recommend, as it is much better tolerated than the mature one. The goat’s cheese leftovers can be used for a snack or as a base for savory breakfast toast.
