Recipe Details


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large leek (white part only), chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided, or as needed
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 ½ cups (1/2-inch) sliced zucchini
  • 1 ½ cups (1/2-inch) pieces asparagus
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1 ½ cups sliced cooked potatoes
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 ounces crumbled goat-milk feta cheese, divided


  1. Heat olive oil in a heavy 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook the chopped leek with a pinch of salt, stirring occasionally, until softened and translucent, about 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Add diced jalapeno pepper and sliced zucchini to the skillet, seasoning with another pinch of salt. Cook until the zucchini starts to become tender and pale green, approximately 5 minutes.
  3. Add the asparagus pieces and cook until they turn bright green, about 1 minute. Then, add the baby spinach along with another pinch of salt, cooking until wilted, approximately 1 minute. Stir in the sliced cooked potatoes and heat through for about 5 minutes.
  4. In a bowl, crack the eggs and add cayenne pepper, salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Whisk the eggs for at least 30 seconds until well combined. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet with the vegetables over medium heat.
  5. Add 3 ounces of crumbled goat cheese to the skillet and stir lightly until evenly distributed. Top the frittata with the remaining crumbled goat cheese.
  6. Preheat the oven and bake the frittata until the eggs are set, approximately 12 to 15 minutes. When the frittata is nearly set, turn on the broiler and broil until the top is golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  7. Allow the frittata to cool slightly before serving warm.
