For our feature recipe of the month, this is the story behind this recipe and what inspired Matsecooks to share this awesome goodness with the rest of the world. This was what she intended to do making this recipe. She enjoys Nigerian and western fusions. It gives character to a meal. A frittata is an egg based Italian dish, similar to an omelette. It is very versatile.
Her hubby had this for breakfast and he said; “Baby, this is delicious”. She had to wrap up some extras in an aluminium foil for him to take out as lunch.
Trust me, this may end up becoming a regular recipe in your home that you would share with your friends.
- 2 ripe plantains
- 4-6 eggs
- 1 green pepper
- 2 big habanero pepper
- 1 medium size onion
- 1 cup beans sprouts (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or crush and add 2 cloves of fresh garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (optional)
- Salt to taste
- 1 cup vegetable oil to fry plantain
Now, let’s make this very easy meal.
Matsecooks loves making meals with easily accessible ingredients that you can find in your local stores or supermarket. Feel free to be creative with your spices, vegetables and cold cuts (ham, bacon or sausages, you could try with fish fillet too).
Get some ripe plantain, slice or dice them if you wish.
Fry in hot oil until golden brown or spray with olive oil and bake in an oven (to help control the total amount of calories)
Slice/dice the vegetables.
In a bowl, break the eggs and add all the spices and herbs. Mix together thoroughly.
Transfer the egg mix into a bigger bowl and add the vegetables to it, then mix together. *If using ham, bacon, sausages or fish fillet, fry in a pan and cut into bits to add to the mix.
Pour the mix into a greased pan and spread evenly with a fork.
Cover and set over low heat for 10 minutes.
Then, transfer to a pre-heated oven and bake for 5 to 10 minutes until it is set.
Nicely done, huh?!
Cut out a nice warm slice for yourself.
