For those of you who have never tried the Italian version of an omelet which is called a Frittata, it is the perfect and very healthy dish for Sunday brunch!
- Wash the zucchini and cut off the ends. Cut in half, lengthwise and then thinly slice.
- Use a stovetop oven pan, a pan that can be used both on the stovetop and in the oven and that does not have plastic handles.
- Thinly slice the onion. Pour some olive oil in the pan and as soon as it gets hot, lower the heat to low and sauté the onions until they caramelize.
- Cut the green pepper in half and finely chop the one half. Set the other half aside to use at the end.
- Crack the eggs in a bowl. Add salt, pepper, finely chopped mint and thyme and some crumbled feta cheese. Mix with a hand whisk.
- When the onions are caramelized, turn up the heat and add the chopped pepper, zucchini and a little more olive oil. Stir with a wooden spoon.
- Add half of the egg mixture to the pan and shake the pan so the mixture spreads in the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the eggs are cooked on the bottom.
- Remove from heat and add the rest of the egg mixture to the pan. Spread it around in the pan.
- Crumble the rest of the feta cheese over the frittata. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.
- Set your oven on broiler and cook for 10-15 minutes.
