We were away visiting my parents in Maryland for the weekend, and of course within 30 minutes of being back home, I went to Wegmans for my weekly shopping trip.  I picked up my “weigh in wednesday” celebratory flowers as well as the ingredients for today’s recipe.  On the drive back from Maryland, I found this recipe in Whole Living (it’s not out on their website) for a Spicy Zucchini Frittata.  Their’s calls for 8 whole eggs which I replaced with egg whites.  They also called for 1/2 a red onion, but I just used the yellow onions I had at home.

Spicy Zucchini Frittata

2 tsbp olive oil

yellow onion (sliced)

1 jalapeno thinly sliced

1 zucchini thinly sliced

1 can whole kernal corn

2 cups egg whites

 1. Heat Broiler.  In a medium ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium heat and cook onion and jalapeno for about 5 minutes until tender.  Add zucchini and corn and cook until tender, about another 7 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.

2.  Pour egg whites into skillet over vegetables.  Cook until sides are just beginning to set, about 2-3 minutes.

3. Transfer skillet to oven and broil until just set in the middle and lightly golden and puffed on top, 2 to 3 minutes.

This does not do it justice, but it is terrific!!!
