Fresh Fast Food: Farmers Market Frittata

A market inspired meal that's filling, light and healthy.

Sometimes, we just need a quick dinner. But that doesn't have to mean going to a drive-through or making something out of the freezer. The farmers market provides tasty ingredients to make a delicious, one-pan meal that can be ready in no-time.

Frittatas seem to be undervalued in the foodie world. They're ridiculously easy to make and filled with fresh veggies and the egg base give it a protein boost. Plus, they can be kid-friendly as well as adult-satisfying.
