Some years ago we were spending Christmas at a holiday house on the NSW south coast and our son decided to bring his girlfriend. That was no problem until it came to cooking Christmas lunch – she was a vegetarian………. Vegetarian Christmas recipes were few and far between in those days and I ended up serving her a stuffed eggplant. I just wish I’d found this recipe as it’s much more colorful and I suspect she would have enjoyed it more. Especially as the power went out due to a bushfire in the area and we ended up cooking the entire meal on the bbq – it was a very Australian Christmas.
It’s Grand Prix weekend here in Melbourne this weekend. My husband is a F1 fan and we not only go to the race here every year, but also have been lucky enough to go to several races overseas. As you’d expect the food on sale at the track varies from country to country. So far, unsurprisingly, Italy has had the best. Here in Melbourne it’s all pretty much heavy duty fried things so I usually take a lighter lunch for us. Tomorrow I’m making these Frittatas to take……..
This is a quick and easy vegetable only dish and would be great if you’re looking for a meat free night or something to serve vegetarian friends. Of course, you could also serve it alongside a juicy steak or lamb chops………..
Being able to assemble this recipe the day before and then put it in the oven when you need it can be a great advantage. When Mum made it she would just use tinned corn, but she did add fresh capsicum, which she fried up with the onion and garlic.
