Vegetable fritatta

New things: beets, fritatta. Level up!

Today I had my first beet. It reminded me of baby corn, which I also
like eating. It might go well with the purple sweet potatoes… Hmm.
=) One of the good things about the Good Food Box is that you're
forced to experiment! Whee!

Today I made a fresh vegetable fritatta. I started with the basic idea
of a fritatta, which is really just scrambled eggs with stuff on it,
or an omelette that hasn't been folded. Here's what I did:

  1. Chop half a carrot, half a potato, and half a beet into half-inch
    cubes. (There's a pattern here somewhere…)
  2. Layer the carrots, potatoes, and beets in a microwaveable dish. Add a little bit of water.
  3. Add some clusters of broccoli, if you want.
  4. Cover and microwave for three minutes.
  5. Heat a pan to medium. Add oil.
  6. Beat the eggs lightly.
  7. Drain vegetables and add to pan. Spread out so that they're evenly distributed.
  8. Pour egg over vegetables. Cover and cook until golden,

Not bad at all… =)

There re better ways to prepare a fritatta. I should try them out! I
need a skillet that can go from rangetop to oven…
