Zucchini omelette: A summer main course that is easy to prepare

The zucchini omelette is a Simple summer main course and quick to prepare: You can enjoy it warm or cold, accompanied by a tomato salad with garlic and basil. To prepare this Rustic second course based on eggs and vegetables, in addition to the Zucchini you just need eggs, fresh basil and much cheese grated. I like to mix different types of cheese in order to get a grated zucchini omelette very flavorful: Parmigiano Reggiano, Pecorino Romano and Spicy Provolone.

Which zucchini to use for zucchini omelette

I suggest you use Romanesque zucchini or light green Sicilian zucchini and not dark-skinned zucchini, which often have a bitter aftertaste. If the Roman zucchini has the flower attached, chop it and add it to the omelette. or make these delicious ZUCCHINI FLOWER PANCAKES, An absolutely perfect appetizer. Other Tip, Place the grated zucchini in a colander, room lightly and, after about 15 minutes, Squeeze them to remove excess water. So your Zucchini omelette will be fluffy but not moist.

If you prefer a Taller and fluffier vegetable omelette, You can also add 150 grams of ricotta. Or you can try the delicious one directly ZUCCHINI AND RICOTTA SAVORY PIE. For me the best way to cook whichever omelet (Have you tried that BY AGRETTI or the SPANISH POTATO TORTILLA?) is in frying pan, But you can bake this grated zucchini omelette even at oven or in fryer ad air. I'll explain how in the process. I also recommend you take a look at mine RECIPES WITH ZUCCHINI, as the SICILIAN-STYLE PASTA WITH ZUCCHINI, the SPAGHETTI ALLA NERANO, the RAW MARINATED ZUCCHINI, the BAKED ZUCCHINI MEATBALLS or the LASAGNE WHITE WITH ZUCCHINI. Have a good day!
