Veggie Frittata & Strawberry Guava, Orange Juice, & Blueberry Smoothie

Today I have a super easy, and super YUMMY recipe for you all! 
I LOVE making these when I'm hungry for brunch, lunch, or even late at night, I'll make it before I go to bed. And it's super healthy! Full of veggies, full of protein! 
And I also have a little elixir surprise in store for you, to enjoy along side of this yummy dish!
So without further adieu, I present to you my recipe for 

Veggie Frittata with 
Guava Nectar, Orange & Blueberry Smoothie!

Ingredients for Frittata 
Half a Zucchini 
1 Tomato 
Half a small onion 
A few pinches of fresh parsley
Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil

So first you want to chop your veggies...
I used Zucchini, Tomato, & Onion, 
They are my FAVE together, and especially with eggs ...
Also be sure to give em a rinse first before chopping!

Coat your pan with some olive oil, fire up that heat and once that starts sizzling, 
throw in your veggies! 
These are going to have to cook for awhile before adding your egg.
So stir those around a bit, get them coated in the olive oil, and then turn the heat down a bit, place a lid over them, and let them cook from the steam! 
Set it and forget it for awhile...

Now you want to get out 2 eggs!
Scramble those...
Now after scrambling my eggs, I love to add salt & pepper, sometimes a little crushed red pepper for heat,
Let's go outside to my parsley plant to pick a few sprigs!

Look who came to visit my Parsley plant today!
I was wondering why we were a bit scarce on the parsley this year...
Looks like Mr. Grubby found my secret stash...
He looked so content in there munching away, 
so I picked my few sprigs and let him be.
I wonder what beautiful color his wings will be when he becomes a beautiful butterfly one day...

Well that was a nice little surprise!
Have a nice day Mr. Grubby!
Now back to our recipe...

Rinse your garden parsley...

And add to your scrambled egg mixture!

Once that's all mixed, check on your veggies! 
If they are still not tender, leave them cook until they are!
Once they are cooked all the way through, you can add your egg to the pan now....

Make sure the egg covers the whole bottom of the pan, coating all of your veggies as well....
Put heat on low, place a lid over it, and let your eggs cook through.
While that is cooking, let's start on our magical elixir ! 

Strawberry Guava
Orange Juice
Fresh Blueberries 
Magic Bullet

So for this recipe I used my handy dandy Magic Bullet...
This this is AWESOME for making smoothies of any kind.
I started by filling my bullet halfway with ice, 
then halfway with this YUMMY STRAWBERRY GUAVA to cover that ice, 
then the remainder of the bullet cup with the orange juice.

You want to blend that until there are no more huge ice chunks.
Once you have a nice blended consistency, now add a handful of blueberries!
By now your cup should already be pretty full of smoothie, so be careful not to make it overflow!!

Put the cap back on and blend again, just so the blueberries are crushed up into the mixture now!
Ok your smoothie is done now! Let's put our bullet cup in the fridge until it is ready to serve with our Frittata! Let's check on that now... 
Throughout the course of me making the smoothie, I was also checking my frittata every now and then. 
I kept scraping the sides around the eggs in the pan, and also poked some holes in the center with a fork to prevent air bubbles. 

When your eggs look like the picture below, they are done! 
The olive oil I used to grease the already nonstick pan ensures that my frittata will slide ride out onto and plate!


Let's pour our magical elixir!!
I garnished with some fresh mint from the garden!
How refreshing does this look!?!?

A beautiful table scape for a beautiful day!
I can feel fall in the air already... 
The breeze on this day was so perfect, and the flowers are already starting to hide away...


This dish is so enchantingly delicious!

I ate the WHOLE THING!!!

I hope you enjoyed this recipe as much as I did!
Please try it out, and let me know if you have other ideas to add to the recipe! 
I'd love to hear!

Well, that is all! 
Have a
