The frittata, an egg-based Italian classic dish, is a great go-to recipe for that mix of vegetables you have from a CSA bag but aren't sure what else to do with. This frittata recipe was inspired by chef and food blogger Kara Lydon's CSA surplus. She describes: "one key to a frittata is adding a flavor punch – whether it be garlic, onions, fresh herbs or spices. So for this frittata, I let the chives do the flavor work. I also added some Greek yogurt in place of cream to make the frittata richer and a little more nutritious."
This simple, six-ingredient recipe from Southern Living Magazine takes just half an hour to prepare, but it’ll add something special to any supper. For the best results, choose fresh okra pods no longer than 4 inches in length. Depending on the variety, if the pods are much longer they are going to be tough and woody, which is never ideal. You simply heat the oil in the skillet and add the okra, stirring to coat. Sprinkle okra with salt and pepper and, as the okra fries, sprinkle it with the cornmeal. It’s a no-nonsense process fitting for this simple dish. This quick recipe calls for you to use two skillets, so the okra will have room to cook up extra crispy. But you can also cook two batches in one skillet, just make sure the oil in the second batch gets nice and hot before adding the okra.
