My favorite part of autumn is the abundance of fresh produce and seasonal ingredients. During the months of August to November, sweet corn, mushrooms and big, bright zucchinis become plentiful—and cheap. This dish is a great way to incorporate more veggies into your diet while still making a hearty meal that tastes oh so good. This savory pie is a take on a classic frittata and combines all the great flavors of fall while remaining low carb and keto-friendly.
The beauty of a frittata is that any combination of meats and veggies will taste great. Try making one with cheddar cheese, roasted broccoli, and diced ham, or one made with fresh heirloom tomatoes and basil. Feel free to throw in any vegetables you have in your fridge or omit things to your liking. Regardless, it will taste amazing.
