How to Make Rice and Bean Frittata

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add zucchini to skillet; cook and stir just until crisp-tender.
  2. Microwave rice according to package directions. Add rice and beans to squash in skillet; gently stir to combine.
  3. In a medium bowl combine eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour egg mixture over rice mixture in skillet. Cook over medium heat. As mixture sets, run a spatula around the edges of the skillet, lifting egg mixture so uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking and lifting edges just until egg mixture is set. Sprinkle with cheese. If desired, top with cherry tomatoes and parsley.
  4. *Tip
    If you like, halve zucchini or yellow summer squash lengthwise before slicing.
