Rice, Zucchini, and Feta Frittata with Fennel Pollen Yogurt

Frittatas are a wonderful addition to any breakfast table. Similar to a quiche, they are deliciously filling, and are delightful with just about any combination of mix-ins. This version blends zucchini, onion, and feta (with just a touch of mint) for a creamy dish you’ll want to make again and again.

Ingredients: For the frittata

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 10 baby zucchini, sliced lengthwise

  • 4 scallions, sliced

  • 1 cup cooked white rice

  • ½ cup chopped fresh mint

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 6 eggs

  • ¼ cup heavy cream

  • ¾ cup crumbled feta cheese

Ingredients: For the yogurt

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • 2 pinches fennel pollen

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  2. Heat the butter and oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini and scallions, and sauté until soft. Mix in the rice, mint, and dill, and season with half of the salt and pepper.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, and remaining salt and pepper. Pour over the rice mixture, and cook without stirring for 3 minutes. Sprinkle the crumbled feta on top.

  4. Transfer the skillet to the oven, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden.

  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, fennel pollen, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the fennel pollen to release its flavor and aroma. Yogurt will keep for 3 days in the refrigerator.

  6. Serve frittata with fennel pollen yogurt.
