Tomato & Zucchini Frittata

The Frittata recipe is dairy free, gluten free, and has tomatoes, zucchini and potato greens (or sub spinach)

The frittata is one of my favorite things to throw together because, really, anything you need to use up can go into a frittata. This one is made of every vegetable I had on hand last week – a variety of tomatoes, zucchini and some really lovely sweet potato greens. (Although feel free to use spinach or another leafy green – whatever you have).

Awhile back, I used to shy away from frittatas because I thought they required lots of butter and cream. (I used to be entirely non-dairy). While I do eat small amounts of high quality cheese pretty often these days, I don’t do milk. Since almond milk is what I keep on hand, almond milk is what goes into my frittata. It works perfectly to make the eggs nice and fluffy.

You might not be able to find sweet potato greens, but if you see them at your local farmers market – grab them. They’re so soft and delicious – like spinach but with a more mild flavor.

Pile in the veggies and serve this for brunch, or better yet – breakfast for dinner!

tomato & zucchini frittata
Serves: serves about 3
  • 6 eggs
  • ¼ cup Original Almond Breeze Almond Milk (Unsweetened)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • handful of chopped leafy greens (sweet potato greens, or spinach)
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced into thin coins
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • (optional) pinch of smoked paprika
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • fresh herbs - sage, thyme or basil
  • salt & pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Whisk together eggs and almond milk with a pinch of salt. (For a fluffier frittata, I like to do this in a blender). Set aside.
  3. Heat an 8 or 10 inch skillet on the stove. Add a bit of olive oil, then add the chopped greens, zucchini, minced garlic, and a few pinches of salt and pepper. Cook for just a minute or so - until the greens wilt and the zucchini starts to soften. Add a pinch of paprika, stir, then add the eggs.
  4. Add the tomatoes, more salt & pepper. Turn the stove off and slide your pan into the oven.
  5. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until eggs are just set.
  6. During the last 5-ish minutes of cooking time add sage and thyme on top. (If you're using basil, add it just as the frittata comes out of the oven).
  7. Remove from oven, let cool for 15 minutes (or more), then slice and serve. Add more salt & pepper to taste.
If you're using a skillet larger than 10 inches, use 8 eggs instead of 6.

For a prettier frittata, add all of your veggies in 2 layers. Add the first half as written, then add the rest after your eggs have partially set in the oven. Continue cooking until eggs are fully set. (Note: this step is entirely not necessary for the actual taste).

  1. So beautiful! And I’ve never eaten sweet potato greens before. I’ll have to try them out!

  2. So beautiful, and I loooove frittata!!!! It’s so hearty yet it doesn’t feel heavy and unhealthy…at least in my opinion. 🙂

  3. I just LOVE frittatas sooo much! Such a perfect summertime dinner! This sounds amazing. YUM!

  4. I have never heard of sweet potato greens before! I don’t think we’ll be able to find them around here though. Going to try out almond milk (normally we have soya) – my boyfriend is now lactose intolerant although we discovered parmagiano reggiano is actually lactose free naturally.

    I’m mad for frittata’s , it’s a great way to get loads of veggies in.

    • jeanine

      that’s true, many hard cheeses and sharp cheeses don’t have lactose. Milk and cream are the things I avoid most (although I also just don’t like the taste of milk).

    This looks so good! Perfect brunch recipe!

  6. I love frittatas! I have never heard of sweet potato greens, but I am going to keep my eye out for them the next time I go to the farmer’s market.

    • Steele

      or throw an old sweet potato in a pot and have them handy and fresh!

  7. Great tip about substituting in almond milk. I love how colorful your one is and frittatas are perfect for during the week!

  8. Woah! I did not know you could eat sweet potato tops….neat. I’ve never seen them sold at the market, but will have to seek out a gardener. Perfect summer dish!

    • jeanine

      they’re delicious! They just came in my csa box (I occasionally see them at my farmers market).

  9. This reminds me of this amazing brunch dish I had, it was a yellow squash and zucchini panade, with cheese and bread. It was baked in the oven until piping hot and crusty, so delicious!

  10. It is definitely a wonderful collaboration of colorful healthy delight. I love cooking sausage stuffed Zucchini Boats but then they are high in calories and require at least an hour for preparation. I think this recipe is far convenient and healthy, thanks for sharing it 🙂

    My eyes!!! I’ve never seen a prettier frittata, Jeanine! I’ve also never seen sweet potato greens but I’ll keep an eye out for them!

  13. Anna

    If I added any cheese would I just top it on there during the last few minutes of cooking? This looks lovely!

    • jeanine

      Hi Anna, I add cheese at the beginning after I’ve layered everything in (right after the tomatoes). Cheese can cook the whole time.

      If you’re using fresh herbs, the only reason I add them near the end is because they’ll burn.

      Hope you like it!

    looks great!! Just made it with goat cheese, pepperoni, tomatoes, scallions, green peppers & cilantro.

    • jeanine

    Would this work with hemp milk? My daughter is cmpa and I’m learning lots of new recipes she is 9months old and we are doing blw. I can’t give her almond milk due to alligies.
