Feature Friday - July 29, 2011

Welcome to the second edition of Feature Friday, the day where I feature a recipe that really embodies what the Mediterranean Diet is about: whole foods, fresh, seasonal ingredients, and simple, wonderful flavour.

In the short time that I've been writing this blog, I've been so excited to find other blogs who do focus on these ideals, and this week I'm featuring not only a recipe, but a blog. Roz, from la bella vita, really gets this whole lifestyle, and her blog is amazing and inspiring. You should check it out, and I definitely suggest you follow her. Earlier this week, Roz shared her idea for Panzanella Frittata, which not only is full of fresh, delicious ingredients, but also uses up left-overs, which is a real necessity in my books. We've all been in that spot where, at the end of the week, we find we've put things in the fridge with the intention of using them up, only to realize that we've missed the boat and it's too late.

Roz' Panzanella Frittata features a leftover Panzanella, which is a classic tomato-bread salad with fresh basil, which she took the bread out of, fried up a little, added eggs and baked into a beautiful, fluffy, browned frittata. It looks beautiful and delicious!

In the summer, personally I find that I'm driven towards salads and bbq, but recently I've been reminded that eggs are actually a perfect vehicule for showing off the fresh ingredients of summer. In this case, fresh tomatoes, basil and red onions. As another example, I recently took a trip to the farmer's market and bought some duck eggs, which are wonderfully fluffy and highly nutritious (and would be an excellent option for this recipe), and cooked them up with fresh chives and local cheese. Eggs are also perfect for summer, because they are so quick to cook up. Roz' recipe only went into the oven for 10 minutes.

Thanks for the inspiration Roz. I look forward to reading more of your recipes in the future! Dearest Reader's, check her out today!

If you have a recipe you'd like to have featured on Feature Friday, please let me know. And if you do get featured, feel free to grab my button!

Have a fantastic Friday all!
